Key Takeaways for Savvy Investors
Despite a lot of uncertainty around business reopenings, vaccination rates, and economic growth, equities delivered a solid performance in the second quarter, closing out the strongest first half since 2019.7
While the quarter closed strong, a number of dips, rallies, and ongoing volatility made it a bumpy road. We can expect more of this as the world continues to recover from the pandemic.
With all the uncertainty, it would not be surprising to see a market correction or pullback in the months ahead.
Overall, the economy seems positioned for strong growth in the second half of the year, though inflation worries, politics, and post-pandemic concerns may weigh.
Bottom line, I'm keeping a close eye on market conditions, as continued uncertainty could drive changes.
