Goldman Sachs: S&P 500 at 4 300 in 2021

Goldman Sachs: S&P 500 at 4 300 in 2021

Information is not investment advice

S&P 500 is widely considered as the best measure of the US stock market and an indicator of the overall US economic health. Therefore, you can look at the performance of the S&P 500 and get a good overview of what was going on during the chosen period.

Looking back at 2020

S&P 500 dropped enormously at the beginning of 2020 amid the market crash after the Covid-19 outbreak. The stock index experienced an unprecedented swing down from 3 400 to 2 200. Since then, S&P has regained its losses and even outrun as the market shock passed and businesses started to adapt to the new conditions.

Light at the end of the tunnel

The year-end is getting closer, but most economies still haven’t been able to return to pre-crisis levels. Analysts predict that some countries will fully recover only by the end of 2021, while others only by 2022. Luckily, widespread vaccinations have already started, and that will help to take the Covid-19 spread under control. It added optimism to the market, and S&P 500 surged on hopes for further economic growth and prosperity. In fact, stocks always fall before a recession and rise ahead of recovery.

Forecast

According to Goldman Sachs, the stock rally will continue in 2021 as the global economy will regain pre-pandemic levels after the vaccine rollout. The price target for 2021 is 4 300 and for 2022 – 4 600! Goldman Sachs explains such a huge increase by a surge in corporate profits next year in the technology, materials, and consumer-discretionary sectors.

Note that to trade S&P 500 with FBS, you need S&P 500-21H, which will expire on March 19.

Will USDJPY slide lower in 2023?

Last year was tough for the Japanese yen. USDJPY gained more than 30% over 2022, striking above 150 in October. While anticipation of slower Fed rate hikes pulled the pair below the 130 level at the start of 2023, the speculations over the destiny of BOJ’s yield control policy grabbed the attention of the Japanese assets in the middle of January. What lies ahead for traders of the Japanese yen?
