Asia to the Rescue

April 20, 2012 – 5:05 pm

As our market works through the earnings season and the worry over Europe, it is Asia we should look to for signs of improvement. The two largest populations in the world, China and India, are beginning to react to their slowed economies. Both are still growing and both have dealt with inflation concerns but are now willing and motivated to spur growth. That should eventually overpower the weakness in Europe.

It certainly appears that the way out of the U.S. slow growth funk will be coming from Asia and a finally improving housing market but it is going to take time. The actual improving numbers in the U.S may not show up until late this year or early next year but the stock market will react positively before that.

The question, as it has been for some time, is will Europe will drag the rest of the world down to recession with them? It appears the answer will be no, but it is still a possibility.

Good Trading
