Port Vila, (PressExposure) May 25, 2009 -- There is talk once again, from Forbes.com and other analysts, about a bull market, (a period in which investment prices rise faster than their historical average).
Countries right around the world have been concentrating on building of infrastructure, which in turn has created opportunities for investors in all classes of assets, such as stocks, bonds commodities, currencies and real estate. Everyone is aware that full recovery may be a long way down the road, yet there are numerous opportunities to make money, beginning to appear, as a 'Baby Bull' starts to stir. Maybe it is the beginnings of the end of the bear market.
Investors need to stay in the play during the hard times, so as to be able to take advantage of bull runs, no matter how small they may be. Once the economic news is good, it is too late to start surfing the wave. Since early March, the market rose 37%, causing investors to cautiously begin to stir from their credit-crunch caused hibernation.
The number one emotion that dominates in the early stages of a new bull market, however, is fear. Fear of owning, fear of buying and fear of the future.
The world's billionaires have been forced from having a collective $4 trillion, to having just $2.4 trillion, in just one year. Their average net worth fell 23% to $3 billion. Collectively they were pushed billionaires back to their 2003 figures.
As customer confidence starts to be renewed, it is believed that financial, (where the cascading tumble first began), will be the leaders out. Technology and biotech will follow. However there are many analysts who are issuing still, to be very cautious, even though some others are beginning to optimistically feel the market has hit the bottom â the lower fruit having been plucked.
Many financial analysts, however, are still arguing that the market is experiencing a 'dead-cat-bounce' and could well be seen to turn down again. Basically nothing has been done to correct the problem of financial systems breakdown.
