There seems to be some optimism in the markets that the end of the coronavirus shutdown is getting closer. There is also this resistant myth that the economy will just fire back up at the snap of a finger. Peter Schiff recently appeared on RT Boom Bust along with Christy Ai to talk about the markets and the pandemic. He said people are still far too focused on the pin and not the bubble that it popped.
The US stock market has had some strong rally days recently with this growing optimism that we could be nearing the coronavirus peak. So, has the stock market found its bottom? Peter doesn’t think so.
Too many people are focused on the pin and are ignoring the bubble that the pin pricked. You know, before the COVID-19 shutdown, the economy was long overdue for a severe recession, and the US stock market was long overdue for a bear market. So, I think the COVID virus simply accelerated the onset of both. … So I would not get excited about this rally. I think we still have a long way to go on the downside. And the economy, I think, is going to be even worse.”
Christy agreed with Peter saying this is not the real bounce and we still have a long way drop. She pointed out that earnings still have a long way to fall and there is a massive unemployment tail from the pandemic.
Peter was asked about the response to the government stimulus package signed by President Trump.
