Time and time again forecaster try to predict what will happen in the future to Stock Markets. In reality, nobody knows what Markets will do next.
The Wall Street Journal in the US recently
published an article about the performance of Global Stocks and Shares. The
article was called, “ Global
Stocks Post Strongest First Half in Years, Worrying Investors
for stocks and shares investors is whether the strong first six months of 2017 heralds
a choppier second half or the start of a multiyear upswing. The data on global
rallies offers a mixed record.”
In plain English, this means:
“It’s impossible to predict whether markets will go up or down for the latter half of the year. Markets could go up or down or even trade sideways.”
The newspaper article also reported that: “Most of the major stock Market Indexes, 26 in total have risen in value so far in 2017. The last time this happened was in 2009.
