As 2015 comes to a close, some experts are ringing in the new year by offering their market predictions for 2016.
"I think we will see low-interest rates and low inflation, global slowdown that may continue weak growth out of China and in turn, of course, that's affecting commodity prices, as well," Heather Hughes of SunAmerica Funds told CNBC's "Closing Bell" on Thursday.
Again Capital's John Kilduff also told CNBC's "Closing Bell" that he expects the market to plumb new lows come mid-year.
"This is going to end badly and going to get ugly before we can turn this thing around," he said.
However, Hughes said that the positive light in this mix is the decoupling of central bank policy in the U.S.
"I think that sheds positive light that we are at full employment going forward that may help put some pressure to raise some of those wages for the consumer," Hughes added.
