“We should have more room for growth, but risks like inflation are imminent and geopolitical or other threats can always push the stock market back,” said chief investment officer Chris Zaccarelli (Chris Zaccarelli ) Independent Alliance of Advisors.
The stock market plummeted on Monday, due to concerns that the spread of the Delta variant of the coronavirus may stifle the economic recovery. Despite the strong market closing this week, the economic recovery is still an unresolved issue. More and more cities and states have announced mandatory or recommended masks, which in the past caused public anxiety and stocks plummeted. Zaccarelli pointed out that the gains are caused by stimulus measures, and if the stimulus measures are removed, the market may fall.
What to watch out for
After the unsuccessful vote in the Senate on Wednesday, discussions will continue next week to reach a compromise on the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill.
