The investors have been undoubtedly worried after what happened to the stock markets last week was nothing short of historic in terms of the volatility which was shown in the markets as they saw another pummeling which had driven the stock markets to the lowest since many years. The reason for that is the ongoing chaos around the coronavirus which is threatening to push the world into a recession. Post all of this, a few of the investors may feel that there is a strong temptation for the world to be pushed into a recession but the experts and the veterans of wall street have been strictly advising against doing so. The reason for that is the acknowledgment that no one can predict where the markets are going to reach and how low they are going to go in the period of uncertainty. The peak of the number of new cases is going to have to be reached before the world is able to reach there and this is a question which is for most of the epidemiologists to handle and the challenge which is there for the Americans and the globe as a whole as they practice social distancing and take the isolations seriously.
The professionals have been warning of any temptation to make the bold calls of market bottoms as this is a situation which no investor has seen in his life and they can never predict when the virus is going to relent and how the market is going to react. The investors are advised by the experts to maintain restraint until the situation becomes clearer in the longer term as well.
