The world is at the edge of its seat because of recent developments in pharma that have the promise of a cure for the coronavirus. Steven Fisackerly explains how even mere news of this can affect the market.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) currently lists Pfizer-BioNTech as the only vaccine authorized and recommended to prevent COVID-19, while AstraZeneca, Janssen, and Moderna’s versions of the COVID-19 vaccine are tightly locked in with each other in the race to conclude each of their own clinical trials.

When four big name pharma brands are mentioned as potential providers of the solution to the biggest problem our generation has faced in a while, the rest of the world stops holding its breath, even just for a bit. …

The world remains hopeful for a cure for COVID19, and there has been some light at the end of the tunnel, as laboratory experimentations are ongoing and human trials have made small steps towards finding a cure. As Steven Fisackerly keeps his fingers crossed together with the rest of us, he invites us to imagine how the economy will look like once a cure has been found.

As most experts weigh in, the knee jerk reaction upon confirmation that there is indeed a cure already is that the whole world will want some of it. Likely, the first to take interest in this are the governments of the world, and the ones who belong to the upper class of society. The one who has the most money gets the first serving, as global trends have shown in the past, Steven Fisackerly points out. …

If there’s one thing that has consistently made a serious impact on global banking and finance throughout history, according to Steven Fisackerly, it’s technology.

The COVID-19’s effect on economies worldwide appears to continue as various states and companies race towards the development of a vaccine. We’re likely to see the slowdown and the bloodbath to continue well into 2021. Although things may look bleak, the tech sector continues to offer a few bright spots here and there according to Steve Fisackerly thanks to many of the properties there to allow life and work to continue on a digital level.
When thinking about investments for the future, it’s good to keep these stocks in mind as per Steve Fisackerly. First, you should think of investing in any kind of business that offers deliveries like GrubHub or Uber or Amazon. Uber and Amazon had made significant earnings during the pandemic, with the Internet commerce company doubling its earnings and Uber Eats getting $1 billion.
Another important area of tech you should set your eyes to are the ones which allow collaboration and work to go location agnostic according to Steve Fisackerly. Slack Technologies and Zoom, for example, offer important products which enable companies to close their physical offices entirely and enable their employees to continue working from home. Zoom’s teleconferencing software has gained around 190 million new users in the space of 2 months from 10 million in 2019.
You should also look at telehealth and pharmaceuticals to balloon post-pandemic. Teladoc, a company which facilitates doctor visits online, has seen user visits boom up to 50% during the first months of the lockdown. …

Steven Fisackerly believes that a lot of people think that the DOW represents our economy. Just what exactly is the DOW and why does it matter in our economy?

The DOW is short for the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) which is an indicator of how the 30 largest companies in the US are faring in today’s economy via daily trading sessions. The stock market provides a measurement in terms of the activity of these companies and their performance. The stock prices are also reflective of a company’s net worth based on how much the prices of their stocks are. For example, a steep decline of Apple Inc. in the stock market would mean that its stocks would have lesser value than what they had before. …

<bi>Skill #1: Exemplary hiring and managing</bi>
