Stock Market Volatility Has Everyone on the Lookout
CHICAGO—The stock market recently suffered two of its largest point declines in history, a volatility that certainly caught the attention of everyone in commercial real estate. Many have been on the lookout for any sign or occurrence that the long but steady recovery has come to an end. However, the market was also quite volatile during 2016, and the economy sailed through that turmoil unscathed.
“In many ways, we are back in 2016 territory,” Revathi Greenwood, head of research for the Americas at Cushman & Wakefield, tells GlobeSt.com. And just as in 2016, we are seeing a wildly swinging market paired with a strong economy.
