CITY VIEWS: ARE YOU MORE CONFIDENT ABOUT THE STOCK MARKET?

WILL STOCKER | ICAP
“It’s a little bit early to say. The market has not yet returned to the healthy levels of 18 months ago and we are not out of the doldrums. Globally the markets have picked up but I’ll wait another year before I invest, because there is still so much uncertainty around. ”

“I remain nervous – the economic outlook still looks uncertain. I do have money in the stock market, but I'm investing both short and long. I think there is a real threat of a double dip. The UK economy just crept out of recession in the last quarter and still looks weak.”

WILLIS PALERMO | BLOOMBERG
“Yes I am confident about the stock market. I think the upward trend of the last few weeks will continue. I would put my money into the market. By the end of 2010 the economy will have completely recovered and continue to get better in 2011 and 2012. ”
