If you monitor the news, you may have seen headlines like this…
- Famed economist Andrew Smithers warns of an “80% Stock Market Crash to Strike in 2017.”
- British daily The Independent blared this headline on June 25: “Great recession fears as bankers warn next global crash could arrive ‘with a vengeance.’”
- And in April, CNBC screamed, “There’s more than 60% chance of a global recession within the next 18 months, economist says.”
These bold predictions get plenty of media attention. But they’re all wrong. And listening to these can cost you a lot of money.
The Global Economy Is Growing
This may sound surprising to many of you. After all, the media loves to portray a struggling economy and tell you that a crash is around the corner.
But here at the Daily, we pull back the curtain to show you what’s really going on.
We dig far and deep to find research (positive and negative) that can help you make money.
And we found a recent report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
The report’s findings are staggering…
The OECD tracks 45 national economies. And all of them are growing.
Even more, 33 of the 45 countries showed accelerating growth from last year. That’s the first time since 2010.
For those who may not know, 2010 was the start of the recent bull market that has tripled stock investors’ money.
And we’re not just seeing a little bit of growth, either.
India is the seventh-largest economy in the world. And its economy is growing 7.1% this year. Next year, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) projects growth to be 7.7%.
And it’s not just India… The same IMF report predicts all emerging economies around the world will expand 4.8% next year.
This report shows, with cold hard numbers, that the global economy is growing… and growing quickly.
Where There’s Growth, There’s Opportunity
You might not care about what happens halfway around the world. But you should.
Today, the global economy is more interconnected than ever.
World trade accounts for almost 60% of global GDP. So when the global economy is growing, that means the U.S. economy is growing, too.
The S&P 500 consists mostly of multinational conglomerates. As long as the world economy keeps chugging along, so will sales, profits, and stock prices.
Right now, world economies are laying a strong foundation for a sustainable stock market rally. And the foundation is getting stronger.
This bull market doesn’t show any signs of stopping.
You need to be invested in stocks… in the U.S. and around the world.
If you want to get in on the fast growth of emerging markets, consider the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM). It’s a “one-click” way to play this trend.
