Given how swiftly and dramatically the financial crisis and its aftermath have changed our global landscape, it’s no wonder people are paying close attention as this year’s first quarter gets underway. In this article, we take a look at what we know about the current state of the economic trends to give you an idea of what to expect when the stock market opens tomorrow.
What we know about economic trends today
While the global economy is far from robust, they have been performing strongly of late. In recent months, around the world has been relatively stable with investors keeping a close eye on the Federal Reserve’s (Fed’s) policymaking. We know that the Fed will continue to increase the amount it prints money but at a gradual pace. Investors also know that the Fed will be careful not to boost inflation above 2% to maintain interest rates at historic lows. In addition, investors should keep an eye on trade tensions between the U.S. and China, as well as the potential for a new recession to shape investors’ views on the current state of the market.
What we know about economic trends tomorrow
Looking ahead, we can expect a continuation of the current market trends. As we mentioned above, the Fed will continue to raise interest rates slowly and steadily. In addition, investors should keep an eye on trade tensions between the U.S. and China, the potential for a new recession and the Fed’s policymaking. If the market’s mood turns negative, stocks can fall as much as 10% in a matter of hours.
What to Expect in 2023
As we approach the end of the 2022-23 period, we can look back at the market’s performance in the first half of the year to see how they stacked up against the rest of the decade. With the market correction that followed the 2016 presidential election and the stock market’s recent decline, it’s no surprise that the market’s long-term trends are positive. In the next 10 years, we can see how the market performed against the S&P 500 Index, the NASDAQ, and other stocks that advanced at least 10% each year. If the market had done better than the rest over the long haul, it would be worth much more than it is today.
As we enter the first quarter of 2018, the global markets are closely watching for any changes in sentiment to suggest a reversal in the recent slump in global markets. As we mentioned above, the Fed will continue to raise interest rates slowly and steadily. In addition, investors should keep an eye on trade tensions between the U.S. and China, the potential for a new recession, and the Fed’s policymaking. If the market’s mood turns negative, stocks can fall as much as 10% in a matter of hours. That said, with the S&P 500 Index now worth more than $2tn, the declines have been moderate in recent months and there is little to suggest that the market will reverse course any time soon.
