There’s a lot of emotional and financial turmoil right now as we face a virus that comes with a lot of unknowns. The market is going up and down, and you may be wondering what you should be doing right now to best prepare for an uncertain future. On today’s episode of Cover Your Assets KC, David talks through what has been happening lately and a few possible scenarios moving forward.
We experienced a market crash but now it’s started to bounce back. There was a market drop that was the fastest 20 percent and 30 percent drop ever according to the headlines. Then we had one of the biggest bounces in over 40 years. What caused the drop and then what caused the bounce?
Between coronavirus, an economic shutdown, and an oil war, there’s a lot at play here. Then there was a major bounce back after between $6-7 trillion of economic spending and support from the government. David talks through what occurred in such a short time and how some of that money was spent.
Is the bounce back sustainable? We don’t know when the restrictions will be lifted. When will the country not only be allowed but comfortable going to a sporting event or a restaurant? We have no idea what getting back to “normal” might be like. What are the potential impacts on the economy? Will it come back slowly or quickly once coronavirus is over?
What should you do with your money now? If nobody knows how fast we’ll make an economic recovery, how can you handle your money wisely in the market?
