WirtschaftRegional - Wirtschaftliche Erholung erwartet

Landauf, landab fallen diesen Sommer die Jahrmärkte – in der Schweiz gemeinhin als «Chilbi» bezeichnet – aus. Anlegerinnen und Anleger können sich indes nicht über einen Mangel an Achterbahnfahrten beklagen, im Gegenteil. Die fürchterliche Sturzfahrt der Börsennotierungen des ersten Quartals ist an nahezu allen Märkten nahtlos in einen Anstieg übergegangen, der manchen im zweiten Quartal fast den Schnauf abgeschnitten hat.

Climbing the wall of worries

Irrespective of the many flashpoints, equity and bond prices continued to rise throughout the third quarter. Gold in particular benefitted from this constellation. At the same time, the economy is slowing down, first and foremost because of the numerous ongoing disputes in politics.

What a quarter! The second three-month period bestowed gains on all asset classes. Even bonds in developed economies, which hardly anyone would have accredited with room on the upside in view of the low yields over an extended period now, managed to shine with positive results again. Adding in those achieved in the first quarter, quite handsome returns were achieved by mid-year, leading the Swiss business journal “Finanz und Wirtschaft” (Finance and Economy) to enthuse about the “best investment half-year in decades”.

The first quarter saw a broadly based recovery. All asset classes contributed to an all-round positive investment return. True, the global economy is cooling down, but for the time being, a recession does not seem to be around the corner. Financial markets are oscillating between hope and fear.

Crash in instalments

The financial markets suffered a crash in instalments during the fourth quarter, turning 2018 into one of the worst investment years since the financial crisis ten years ago. Hardly any asset class managed to deliver a positive return contribution. This was in spite of the economic environment not being so dire. Are economists blind or are exchanges exaggerating on the downside?

On the surface of it, the summer months passed rather quietly. The major exchanges were trending sideways, like most of the European ones for example, or more or less upwards, such as Switzerland, Japan and the USA. A rumbling could be heard from emerging countries like Turkey and Argentina, as well as from gold that shone only faintly.

Economically sunny, politically overcast, is a good summary of financial markets during the second quarter. In places, equities managed to recover some ground from the dive in the first quarter, whereas bond prices partially continued their slide. Gold found few friends, alternative investments attracted little attention.

The calm is over. While investors, particularly those in equities, once again relished a fair tailwind in January, February saw them being overswept by a cold front and rudely brought back to reality with a thump. International trade disputes as well as rising interest rates have put an end to the stock exchange party for the present. However, the economic environment continues to remain positive, which should help markets.

2017 will enter the history books as a good year for financial investors. Equities played a major part in this, but gold and hedge funds also managed to turn in a pleasing performance. It was by courtesy of bonds that the party was not spoiled. The economic outlook is good, supporting financial markets. Investors, however, are worried about high valuations.
