Just trying to collect all ideas for bull case/bear case. I am biased on the bull side just a disclaimer. But I will try to provide sources whenever I can.
Anything posted in the comments I will update the list.
- The Fed
- Other countries central bank
- Sovereign Funds
- Pension Funds
- Election Year
- High unemployment with Stimulus Checks
- High unemployment and casinos are closed
- Short Squeeze
- A lot of Liquidity
- MM / Big Players loaded up in bottom will not let it crash
- All of the world best mind are focused on this problem
- V-Shaped Recovery
- There is no better place to put your money than in the market. Bonds suck. Oil? Forget about it. Most commodities are low. Where shall you put your retirement? Savings? There are threats to that going negative. The market is the only game in town.
- Volatility never remains this high for very long. We’re close to a 30-year record. Declining volatility spikes are always associated with higher prices.
- Pesky Valuation / Fundamentals
- We haven’t paid attention to fundamentals in a long time.
- Earning will be decreasing and will not return to the 2020 level for 2-3 years
- Unemployment will remain high
- Maybe a good argument for UBI? so stocks should go even higher
- Trade war with China
- Maybe this brings all jobs back to the US so good for the economy. This can be good or bad depending on how you see it.
- Food Shortages
- L or U shaped recovery
- Depression / Recession
- Not sure about this one, as Fed will just print more. So stocks will rise even more
- Waves of Virus
- Maybe more stimulus, more Fed Intervention
- Democrats in 2020
- They normally spend even more than Republicans
- States / Cities Bankruptcy
- Trump/Pence catches Rona
- A lot of money sitting on the sideline
- Highest money market fund. I feel like this can be fuel for the rally for the stairway to heaven.
- Everyone is bearish / most hated rally
- Maybe this will keep fueling this rally even more
- Lots of Retail buying
- Buffett not buying
- US Yield Curve is trying to invert. At least the futures are dipping into negative yields.
- Oil hits rock bottom again, which shows that the current market prices are not indicative of prices in 10 days.
