Excitement is welcoming investors ahead of the US election, as stocks rallied around the world and Wall Street ready for another bull session.
Some say that markets may be celebrating Democrats’ wins at the White House and Senate and could be a bigger stimulus aid, though opinions differ when it comes to winning the market. The market continued to recover from last week’s sell-off.

To spoil all this pre-election giddy is ours call of the day, from Unigestion’s head of macro and dynamic allocation, Guilhem Savry, who warns that the balance of risk is tilting toward “significantly reducing risk,” with markets underestimating two negative scenarios.

But entering that wave, Savry found weak US consumption and problems with external demand for China, which reflected troubles in Europe, a region “that doesn’t seem strong enough. to withstand a second shock ”. That means stimulus from deeply indebted governments will be less affected this time and 0% rates are over.
The second risk is the US election itself. Savry warned financial markets are convincing themselves of the so-called ‘green wave’, with investors pivoting into stocks that will benefit from the Democratic Party’s massive stimulus help. Obviously, differing opinions on that as the election approaches.

“This scenario seems to be undervalued by the markets at this stage,” Savry said.
Over the past few weeks, he has adopted a more bearish stance on risky assets such as development stocks and high yield spreads. He said only two things would reverse that stance in the short term – the emergence of vaccines and / or the stimulus of global coordination for 10% of gross domestic product, well supported by banks. center.
