Investors take a back seat as risk factor grows

Investors in the worldwide stock market appear to be sitting on the sidelines waiting for definitive news on the direction of the worldwide stock market. This comes just months after many investors believed that the worldwide economy had turned the corner and was moving back towards a growth phase. So why have investors suddenly turned negative?

One major issue appears to be sovereign debt in Europe with concerns that the Greek economy is again moving towards a very difficult economic period despite the fact it has the backing of a significant bailout from the EU and the IMF. Again, there are fears that this problem could "infect" other EU members and put more pressure upon the European Union and the IMF to step forward with further bailout funding. However, there are concerns about the financial strength of the European Union and the IMF which have both been forced to dig deep over the last few months.

When you also consider that the US economic recovery may not be as strong as many had first thought it is easy to see why some investors are becoming more concerned. This relatively low-key move to the sidelines by some investors is likely to see more people follow suit in the short to medium term which could put pressure on stock markets.
