    France’s Stock Market Regulator – Autorite des Marches Financiers in its annual report Warns on Stock Market Crash.

    “The world has never been so indebted — even more than before the 2007 crisis — and this debt has never been so risky,”

    “The number one risk for 2018 is a brutal correction of stock prices. The current valuation levels look high both by historical standards, and in fundamental terms across a whole range of indicators, starting with American equities.”

    “Any correction there would most likely spread to other stock markets.

    “Expansionary monetary policies have encouraged investors to hunt for yield by buying higher-yielding securities from lower-rated issuers whose solvency could be called into question quickly if rates rise or the macroeconomic environment worsens,” the AMF said

    The French regulator said Brexit could lead to a host of cliff-edge shocks.

    “The accord is conditional on a vote in the British Parliament and the European Parliament. The outcome of the talks risks remaining in doubt until the last moment, so actors must prepare for a no-deal scenario, a hard Brexit on March 29, 2019, and develop appropriate contingency plans,” it said.
