Are World Stock Markets Set For A Fall?

News that the rate of unemployment in the US is rising at the highest rate in over two decades saw worldwide stock markets sit up and take notice, reversing gains from earlier in the day. This higher than expected rise in the US unemployment numbers has confirmed the worst fears of many analysts, the US economy is stalling badly. It seems that after a period of relative calm the US economy is set for another period of sustained pressure.

Stock markets around the world have been a little more resilient than many had expected of late but there are grave concerns that selling pressure may increase over the coming weeks and months. The traditional reaction to such a rise in the unemployment numbers would be a slashing of base rates. However, like the UK and Europe there are also concerns in the US about the rising rate of inflation.

A number of analysts have also highlighted the massive rise in repossessions throughout the US and the strain which this will put on the social security system. While things are very difficult in Europe and the UK it seems that the US is also set for another period of serious pressure.
