Evaluating Market Performance Over Multiple Business Cycles

Source: BURSA ACADEMY | Published: June 2020

Online services have put the world at our fingertips. Swamped by so much information, it is inevitable that some of us will be swayed quickly and easily by inauthentic sources and voices. Not surprisingly, a large number of the most persistent of these sources are 'financial gurus' offering to make you rich – and, more often than not, instantly rich. What the genuine expert will tell us, however, is that there are no 'secret shortcuts' to riches.

Quite simply, if we want money, we must learn how to get it. In the stock market, that learning begins by studying the market.

Of the many things to study about the market, a good starting point is to examine how the market performs in various business cycles. At the basic level, market performance refers to how a security behaves in the marketplace. Securities, such as stocks and bonds, behave differently at different times as the market moves through the different periods that make up a business cycle.
