The World Responds to Its New Threat: A Virus

March 23, 2020

Stock markets and economies around the world have been whipsawed by a new threat: the pandemic of the coronavirus spread. As a result, stocks are incredibly oversold – more oversold, even, than they were during the 2008 crisis. The U.S. Global Sentiment Indicator, which tracks a variety of asset classes, fell to an all-time low on March 18 and is flashing a screaming buy signal. Before markets eventually recover, Frank Holmes says now is a historic buying opportunity that doesn’t come but once a decade.

Frank also shared a positive message for investors: “Have some patience, look for opportunities and wishing everyone safety from this horrible virus.”

For Frank’s full thoughts, watch the video below!
