A large percentage of people in the trade market do not understand how the stock market operates. Yet, for those who do, they do not care about its effects in their day-to-day lives. But, if you are a stock trader, you can easily understand that connection that exists. It is easier for you to tell the stock markets effect on personal trainers or even grocery shops in your local area. It is important to take time and think about the effects of the stock market in 2019. This comes at a point when we experienced a lot happening in the market the previous year creating an extremely exclusive trading environment. For example, there was a lot of volatility expected last year after stocks dropped in February. Oil as well as energy are specific items that made abundant moves which have never been witnessed in many years. Many professional money institutions closed down as a result of numerous pressures in the market. Those are just a few examples of what happened the previous year. We are not sure what 2019 has in store for us. Below are some of the hints of out anticipations in the stock market in 2019.
Firstly, China is expected to seal its business deal with the U.S. This trade war took a center stage right from last year and is expected to go on in 2019. This came as a result of President Trumps direction to put mechanisms in place that will help equalize trade imbalances between the two countries. This trade war resulted in the US imposing a $34 billion tariffs on all the imports from China, a percentage that has been on a dramatic rise since then all commodities from the country of China. However in 2019, there are high chances of getting a solution to this war based on the available windows in the stock market. Evidence indicates that a solution is going to be reached upon very soon based on the regular meetings between the U.S and China. A positive solution will help boost the business between the two states.
Changes in the IPO market are also what might be a big thing this year. Things were really hot in the first six months of 2018. There are many private companies that were nearly going public from the look of things in the market. The last half of 2018 on the other hand also led to a lot of changes which were not anticipated. The same is expected also this year despite the fact that some companies such as Uber and Lyft among others have already made their decisions of going public. However, it is important for companies who are interested to go public to take some precaution as things might not be bread and butter in the market.
