Doomsday may be creeping up again, but you would never guess so considering the seemingly endless appetite for global risk assets right now. Europe is heading into a perfect summer storm, but global investors remain in party spirits. It is unlikely to last too much longer.

Europe is facing up to a horror show of risk in the next few months and European unity and the euro are unlikely to survive intact. Upcoming French elections, the threat of Grexit and the risk of a major credit event in Italy should be putting global investors on high alert right now. There is even the chance that German Chancellor Angela Merkel could be on the way out after September’s national election.
