- Douglas Porter, Andrew Busch, and Paul Taylor take a look back at 2011 and provide forecast for the year to come

TORONTO, ONTARIO AND CHICAGO, ILLINOIS--(Marketwire - Dec. 13, 2011) - Europe, the dollar, and gold all made headlines this year. The European debt crisis caused stock markets to head south, leaving investors wary. The Canadian dollar hovered above parity against the U.S. dollar before dropping back down. In September, gold climbed to an all-time high of $1920 an ounce.

So what's in store for the New Year? BMO experts in Canada and U.S. will host an annual year-end panel to look back on what happened and predict what's expected for 2012.

What: Douglas Porter, Deputy Chief Economist, BMO Capital Markets, Andrew Busch, Global Currency and Public Policy Strategist, BMO Capital Markets, and Paul Taylor, Chief Investment Officer, BMO Harris Private Banking, will discuss the following:
  • What predictions came true and what predictions missed the mark?
  • What is the economic outlook for 2012?
  • What industry sectors will outperform?
  • Where is the smart money going in equities, bonds, and currency markets?
  • How should you structure your investment portfolio?
