The main market driving news this week was the announcement by Ms Yellen, the first female to chair the Federal Reserve, that they will start to scale back the bond buying program over the course of the next few months. The reduction, proposed to take affect 6mths after the bond buying program has halted see's a positive nod to the recovery in the US. By reducing their purchasing of US Bonds by $10m ($55bn down from $85bn) it is expected that there could be a rate increase as early as April 2015.

This news helped send US markets downward and it is expected that the Asian and European markets will follow suit.

Still affecting the markets is the situation in Crimea. With the Ukrainian government pulling its military out of the region and the EU still unsure as to the strength of the sanctions it can place Russian under there is uncertainty as to the real monetary outcome of the crisis. Moscow has stated that it couple retaliate against any sanctions imposed by the West however many analysts have stated that economic sanctions from the EU would be met harshly and would be difficult to measure due to several members having substantial exposure to Russian businesses.

Markets in Europe have remained flat over the course of the last few weeks as anticipation about the sanctions increased as the conflict has worn on. Major concerns over the Natural gas supplies exported by Russia to Europe have been expressed and this is considered one of Moscow's main cards should harsher economic sanctions be implemented.
