Sightline Conversations: The Role of Behavioural Changes
With the Nasdaq leading the pack, the recent reprieve from market volatility continued last week thanks to attractive returns that were bolstered from the strong technology sector. However, despite the market’s recent stability, several economic indicators still raise some concerns. In their latest conversation, Sightline’s Paul de Sousa and Warren Gerow discuss this discrepancy while also examining the important role that behavioural changes will play as we begin to head into a new normal. Additionally, de Sousa and Gerow also discuss:
- The potential for market pullbacks in the new normal
- The importance of looking beyond the headlines and remaining cautious
- The current state of the bond market
- How negative interest rates may or may not affect the economy
- Oil and energy sectors’ rebound and potential to stay strong
- Where mining equities might head moving forward
Throughout this conversation, de Sousa and Gerow continue to stress that during this unprecedented time, uncertainty still reigns supreme. As a result, it is crucial to stay cautious and remain aware of the potential for more volatility as we start to move forward.
