The stock markets are back up and it is a new normal, but one that is still being felt by investors who are feeling the effects from the recent market collapse.
As of press time, the Dow Jones Industrial Average had plunged almost 9,000 points, but was back to where it was when the crash occurred.
The S&P 500 was down 1.2 percent.
The Nasdaq was down 0.4 percent, the Russell 2000 down 0 to 6,000 and the Russell 1000 down 0 percent.
The stock market has been in a tailspin for the past month and investors were not pleased with the market’s performance.
In a statement posted on Twitter, Jefferies analyst, Adam Gaudin, said that the market had lost a good portion of its value since the start of the year.
Gaudin said that while the market was in “excellent shape,” it was still losing money.
He wrote that the “recovery is unlikely to be complete.”
The markets had lost over 80 percent of their value in just three months.
“The fact that the S&s (sic) are in such a tight spot should not be underestimated,” Gaudis tweeted.
“The market is not a safe asset.
It is now in a position that is far worse than it was three months ago.”
Gaudins said that even though the market has regained some of its lost value, the market is still struggling and that the stock price is not in line with what it was just three years ago.
He said the market would likely crash again if the Dow did not recover to its previous levels.
Gus Baumgartner, the founder of Baumartner Financial Group, a hedge fund, said it is hard to predict when the market will come back to normal.
“At this point, the markets are not recovering,” he said.
“There are a lot of reasons for that.
One is the stock bubble.
It has exploded into a massive bubble.”
Baumgartners stock price rose $1,000 last week, and it has since dropped another $1.50.
He told CNNMoney that investors are still trying to figure out if it will be a long-term comeback.
“They are looking at it in terms of, well, are we going to see a return to normalcy or are we not?
The short answer is, we are not,” he added.”
There are some very bright spots, but the market can be dangerous.
It can be volatile, and volatility is one of the things that investors have to be cognizant of.”
