Goldman strategists led by Peter Oppenheimer noted that the market is in the early stages of the boom after an explosive bounce on stocks that appears to start in recession and marks the start of a new cycle, not to fear bear territory. Instead, the market is in a state of concern.
The strategists stated on Tuesday that the market had grown in good news, but it was deciding to ignore much weaker figures and increasing infection rates.
More than 70 percent of the world’s equity stocks grew after its coronavirus-induced release in March of last year and this month reached a record level of US reward and vaccine-fueled economic bounce. Goldman argues that the sharp turnaround is “almost identical” to the recovery from the financial crisis of 2009, followed by a correction.
Before a correction was entered in May the following year, MSCI All-Country World Index came to a close in March 2009. This time around, however, circumstances are different.
The coronavirus-led crisis and recession was pushed by events, while the economic meltdown generated a “structural bear market.”
The unparalleled pace and scale of politically supported during the pandemic to minimize the risk of prolonged scarring has also reduced the risks for investors of structural scarring and threshold risk so that they can “see” the downturn into recovery, the strategists said.
