Morgan Stanley brings good news from the bad news: the United States is likely to decline, but this time it is not so terrible.
Shalit, chief investment officer of Morgan Stanley, wrote in a research paper on Tuesday that the likelihood of the US economy falling into recession this year has doubled to more than 50 per cent in recent weeks under the influence of sharp interest rate hikes and hawkish forward-looking guidance from the Federal Reserve.

Goldman Sachs Group began to sing short: the performance of US stocks is going downhill, and outsiders are too optimistic.
Goldman Sachs Group Group, which has always been more optimistic about US stocks, has also changed its tune recently. The latest report by Goldman Sachs Group strategists points out that the market is too optimistic about profit margins for stocks in the S & P 500 index. These companies are likely to underperform next year, and U. S. stocks are at risk of falling further. However, Goldman Sachs Group strategists showed the way to investors, recommending stocks of large companies, healthcare and energy industries with stable performance to investors.
The magic of "buying on a bargain" is not there? Investors in US stocks do not dare to copy the bottom.
As of Friday, the s & p 500 was up more than 6% from its trough in 2022, but about $10 billion was withdrawn from equity funds, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Capital outflows are further evidence that investor sentiment is deteriorating after the failure of the once successful bargain-hunting strategy. In the past two weeks, hedge funds tracked by Morgan Stanley have cut their exposure to stocks to their lowest level since 2009. At the same time, individual investors abandoned their long-standing bullish stance and sold shares at the fastest pace in nearly two years.
