Has The Bad News Been Priced In?

What’s the worst that could happen? That seems to be the stock market’s rationale by looking at the recent equity market performance.

We’ve seen risk assets largely discount the slew of devastating economic data. Instead, the focus is on the re-opening of global economies and the recovery that is to follow.

This has left some market participants confused on why the equity market is so positive. However, looking across global macro we can see that Fixed Income, Commodities and Currency markets have not shared the recent optimism.

The question is which asset class is right? Only time will tell, and this week’s upcoming events might nudge us further towards a more definitive answer.
