Guidance In An Uncertain Economy

next event

Thursday, October 1, 2020

This session from ITR Economics on October 1 at 11:00 a.m. ET will help you determine the best course of action for the most important part of the economy – you and your business. Never has it been more critical for decision makers to have a clear, impartial, and data-driven perspective of how factors such as COVID-19, the potential second-wave impact, and the re-opened economies will impact companies moving forward. We will:

1. Look at a system of leading indicators proven to signal cyclical turns in the economy and markets.
2. Present the outlook for the market segments most important to our industry.
3. Assess interest rate and other financial market trends, including the latest information on stock market performance.
4. Cut through the noise and present our expectation of both the human and the business impact of these black swan events.
