In the recent LPL Market Street View video, LPL Financial’s Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick discusses why the recession is likely over, making it one of the shortest recessions ever.

Some reasons discussed include:

  • Historically, new stock market highs have ended recessions, as the stock market is more forward looking
  • Extremely strong housing data and impressive earnings guidance from corporate America
  • Multi-year highs in copper are suggesting the global economy is improving significantly
  • Lastly, manufacturing data has been quite strong and small businesses remain optimistic
