GFG 2022 Market Outlook Video: https://youtu.be/NszlcKXQ7Xs
The markets have experienced an intense selloff in the first three weeks of 2022. As of January 21st, the S&P 500 Index is down over 7% for the month. There are only a few times in the past 10 years that the index has dropped by more the 5% in a single month. That begs the questions, “After those big monthly declines, historically, what happens next?” Continued decline? Market recovery? We are going to answer that question in this video.
The recent selloff has also been widespread. The selloff in January has negatively impacted stocks, bonds, crypto, while inflation continues to erode the value of cash. It has essentially created a nowhere to hide market environment. As of January 21, 2022, the YTD returns of the major indices are:
S&P 500 Index: -7.7%
Small Cap 600: -8.5%
Agg (Bonds): -1.7%
In this video, I’m going to cover:
• What has caused the selloff?
• Do we expect the selloff to continue?
