Where are we now? Market cycles, depressions, recessions, corrections and more

Over the course of my over thirty years of managing money, I have seen numerous market cycles, upturns and downturns.

 Each one has it’s own unique story.

In this episode of my podcast: The Prosperous and Happy Life, I deconstruct the story of the pandemic bull and bear market rollercoaster with my guest Nadeem Kassam; MBA, CFA.

This is definitely a unique story worth telling and we review the sequence of events in simple language, from the beginning of 2020 to August 2022.

In this episode, we dive into:

  • How do we define a bear market, correction and recession? (04:47)
  • The pandemic shock to markets (05:53)
  • How did interest rates decrease even lower during the pandemic? (07:35)
  • The shortest bear market in history  (08:59)
  • Unprecedented market stimulus (10:20)
  • The shortest bull market in history (11:45)
  • What was your take on the markets before the war started in Ukraine? (14:50)
  • Inflation raises it’s ugly head (18:06)
  • What everyone wants to know now:  are we in a recession? (25:20)
  • What does prosperity and happiness mean to you? (31:00)
