I'm still standin': The bull recovers in 2021

Discover what a market recovery might look like in 2021 amongst all the changes to our world.

Wednesday, March 17, 2021
Noon – 1:00 p.m. ET

The year 2020 was unlike any other in memory, as investors had to grapple with a global pandemic, social unrest, nationwide stay-at-home orders, a deep recession, and unprecedented monetary and fiscal responses.

All the while, markets suffered the fastest 35% decline in history off of record highs in February, only to stage a dramatic recovery back to new all-time highs in just 145 days — the fastest recovery in history.

Several key questions remain. Have we exited the stay-at-home recession? What will the shape of the recovery look like? What is the path forward for a stock market at all-time highs? What are the long-term implications of the pandemic? And how will the market respond to the election outcome?

Please join Steve Chiavarone as he shares his candid views on how this will all play out, and what it means for investors.
