Timmer: What to make of the market's rally
Is it a new bull market, or just a bear-market bounce?
BY JURRIEN TIMMER, DIRECTOR OF GLOBAL MACRO FOR FIDELITY MANAGEMENT & RESEARCH COMPANY (FMRCO), FIDELITY VIEWPOINTS – 08/17/2022 4 MIN READ

Key takeaways

With the market up significantly from the lows it touched in June, stocks have now recaptured roughly 50% of the total losses they'd suffered this year.

Bear-market rallies are difficult to distinguish from bull-market beginnings.

One clue may be whether the gains cross much above that 50% mark, as this has rarely happened in past bear-market rallies.

Even if the bear market is over, there may be little earnings or valuation support for stocks to make strong gains from here.
