As per a report published on etfdailynews.com 2015 has officially turned out the worst year of stocks since 2008. In fact, it turned out to be a horrible year for investments as a whole. Oil, junk bonds and industrial commodities performed worse than the stocks did. While the stocks still grappled with abysmal lows, they didn’t crash completely as the other commodities did. Can 2015 be marked as a year of a major financial meltdown like 2008? Perhaps not. However, over the past twelve months we have witnessed serious financial fluctuations – something of the scale of the fiscal irregularities in 2008. Some of the major names like Russell 2000, Dow Jones and S&P 500 registered their worst performance since 2008.
The financial scenario of 2015: What it possibly holds for 2016
According to author Jonathan Cahn, it was only in the month of August when the global market started going berserk and went out to lose 11 trillion dollars as a result. Financial gurus opine that 2015 marked the beginning of a financial crisis which is going to take a notable shape in 2016.
The fiscal fluctuation that we have talked about in the previous section only paved the way for what is going to be marked as a major crisis in 2016. So, don’t be surprised if 2016 turns to be another 2008. You know that the ripples were created in 2015 only.
