Economies growing, stock markets registering sustained gains, IPOs and M&A activity on the rise, unemployment falling, business and investment confidence rising. The worst did not happen in Europe. The USA, the worlds largest economy is back on a roll. Economic and business indicators in many key markets appear to show that we have finally entered the start of the next bull market.
Having weathered the storm and focused hard, most companies and organisations are now in better shape than they have been for a long time. Great news.
Its probably only a matter of time before we make the same mistakes of the past bull runs (as a former student of economics and history and a current observer of human nature I would say future mistakes are a cast iron guarantee!), but for now, its time to be optimistic and enjoy the ride!
