Last week the equity market showed its first signs of faltering since the sharp rally in risk assets began at the end of March. However, it has been an amazing recovery given how “sick” the global markets appeared after global quarantine measures were put in place.

Financial markets staged a stunning recovery in the 2nd quarter, despite the swift economic recession wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic. Widespread, intuitive and highly logical expectations were that the markets would struggle in a best-case scenario and collapse in a worse case scenario. However, markets frequently do not follow intuitive scripts. The 2nd quarter results are an extreme example of markets going “off script.”

As a financial professional, you may talk regularly with clients about the importance of long-term planning. But don’t overlook your own long-term goals. As you think about the future, you may aspire to long-term asset growth without a clear plan on how to achieve it. Or you may look for ways to boost efficiency but overlook new opportunities to enhance your growth potential.

There is a saying in the oil industry that “the cure for low prices is low prices.” Behavior in the domestic oil industry is changing dramatically as capital budgets are slashed, employment is reduced, and a focus on servicing, if not cutting debt, becomes a priority.

1st Quarter 2020 Market Review

April 2, 2020

A little perspective in uncertain times
A little perspective in uncertain times
A little perspective in uncertain times

It would be an understatement to say that the U.S. economy has never seen a quarter quite like the 1st quarter of 2020. The stock market posted one of its worst quarters in history, oil prices plunged by more than 60%, and the yield on 10-year U.S. Treasuries dropped to an all-time low. Gross domestic product (GDP) is projected to sink deep into negative territory after years of steady growth. And weekly unemployment claims spiked to more than 6 million – a jump of about 3,000%. But while the numbers paint a dire picture, a little perspective may be in order.
