  • China while growth will continue to decline it will still be above 6%
     

  • Japan rebounding from their recent recession will help global growth
     

  • Commodities oil, gold, silver all trending downward.
     

  • Disinflation no sign of inflation in 2015 unless Oil rebounds significantly
     

  • Interest Rates likely to see increases in mid 2015. 2-3% range
