The report discusses the probable market impact of widely discussed current events, including the economic effects of Japan’s earthquake, the prospects of a so-called “double-dip”
recession in the US, and the end of the Fed’s second round of quantitative easing. Also discussed are the European monetary union, municipal bond defaults, and the implications of the US federal debt ceiling.
The Fisher Investments Stock Market Outlook offers a sneak peek of the firm’s preliminary outlook for 2012 and explains whether Fisher Investments sees any big risks for stock investors. Also touched upon is how historical events similar to today’s have affected stocks in the past.
