Sixty Percent Chance of Another US Recession by 2020

Iconic $362 billion bank JPMorgan Chase revealed through statistical analysis that the likelihood of a market crash happening in the US in 1 year's time is currently 28%, while there’s a sixty percent chance for it to happen in the year 2020. Over the upcoming three years, the percentage reaches 80%.


 

Why the Global Crash Is Expected

The Federal Reserve Bank in NY has also provided analysis on the issue. It predicted just 14.5% of the market crash to happen by the end of next year, which is quite a huge difference when compared with JPMorgan’s analysis.

This noticeable difference is because JPMorgan uses a much more complex model to calculate their percentage, which takes into consideration essentially every single indicator that effects the financial and real economies, such as compensation growth, participating labor, or business sentiments.

While Amherst Pierpont’s managing economist, Stephen Stanley, explained how the year 2020 may become a very early time for the crash to happen in the United States, like JPMorgan, he noted that the risk still exists even though the United States economy remains strong with the existing bull market and low levels of unemployment.

Furthermore, most economists within the United States predict the drop to happen in the upcoming 2 or 3 years. David Altig, a research director at the FRB in Atlanta, also the NABE chairman, added that currently, about 2 thirds of the total number of economists in the United States do expect a huge drop in the market because of issues with trading that affect panelists, during the final months of 2020. These trading problems cause very high interests forced by the Fed exposing the entire global market to a mid-term crash.

Are Cryptos a Viable Option?

Meanwhile, as economists predict market crashes, cryptos are in increasingly high demand. Financial organizations, like Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, and Fidelity, seem to have created a network targeting investors with plans to purchase cryptocurrencies, but it’s not represented by major crypto prices.

Banks, as well as investment companies, don’t establish businesses based on the crypto sector because the market lacks regulatory assurances.

Experts believe that the fact that huge financial firms are adopting cryptos shows that the interest in digital currencies from investors within the conventional financial sector has been raised drastically for a few months now.

Jim Hamel, ARTRX portfolio manager, said that the industry of electronic payments has grown extremely during the past few years, and such growth by default attracts investors towards cryptos. The major growth of e-commerce as well, allowing users to perform highly secured digital transactions, is a contributor to this ongoing trend. The need for global transactions and a generally globalized market are accelerating it as well.
