There are two types of investors at the moment, according to Paul Donovan, the senior economist at UBS.
There are those obsessed by the debt crisis and fretting over market meltdown and those focusing on the positives, like emerging market growth, Donovan told CNBC Tuesday.

“Two years ago no one questioned whether a euro zone member would default,” he said. “Now people are questioning if the euro will even exist in three years.”
