Episode 81: It’s here. The Coronavirus impact on the stock market reviewed.

The World Health Organisation has officially declared the Coronavirus as a pandemic as travel bans, social distancing and recession speculations dominate headlines. After 20 years of uninterrupted economic growth in Australia, is this going to be our undoing or will it be a blessing in disguise? Joel, Steph, Louis and Brett provides a deep dive into this subject and gives us insight on the current stock market activity as well as outlook for the residential real estate market.

This Week’s Investor Exchange Round Table Covered:

  • Extreme Volatility: The spread and acceleration of the virus has begun to show negative economic impact as measures such as social distancing has reduced the earning abilities of many businesses.

Joel provides his take on what individual investors can do to mitigate risk in this time of fear and uncertainty.
