Last night I popped into BNN Bloomberg to talk about what’s going on in the market.
We’re seeing new highs across a lot of major indexes, but what’s happening underneath the surface?
We’ve been seeing the price of lumber soaring along with things like Steel and Rebar futures. It’s the whole demand/building/growth theme that continues to stand out.
One thing that’s definitely worth watching is the All Country World Index Ex-U.S., which is basically a snapshot of what the rest of the world looks like. And you’ll notice that the index ETF $ACWX is stuck right between its 2008 highs and 2018 highs.
This puts the global stock market in quite a predicament. If you’re bullish equities, you’re going to want to see a breakout through those historic 2008 highs. If you’re bearish equities, this is one you want to see break back below those 2018 highs.
