American Market Reaches Historical Maximum

The S&P 500 index yesterday reached a historical maximum on the back of weak statistics which strengthened investor confidence that the Federal Reserve is in no hurry to raise interest rates. Elsewhere, many in the market are talking about a speedy and quite painful correction for the American stock market. According to expectations, the fall could be by as much as 25-30% by the end of the year. There are many reasons for this. People are even considering a repeat of what happened to the Lehman Brothers in 2008.

In any case, a correction on the American market is possible: what goes up must come down. The correction will negatively affect American consumer confidence, but more importantly it will affect the price of oil and capitalization in developing markets. Thus, these risks need to be taken into account by investors in the Russian ruble and those investing in shares.
