A demographic shift in the US can greatly influence the performance of the stock market.  DaVinci Business Graphics takes a look at the Chart of the Day: Demographics and the Stock Market. 

 

Compared to the 1990’s, the stock market has not been doing well.  Severe fluctuations have made investing in the stock market a gamble for most people.  But some experts are claiming that a demographic shift in the US can help boost the stock market’s success.

A large number of the echo boom generation—those born in the 1980’s and 90’s to post-WWII Baby Boomers—will be entering the age bracket of 35 to 39 year-olds.  This is what experts call the “savings years.”  As this population demographic grows, more equity will flow into the stock market.

Researchers are excited about this growing demographic.  Using a chart of the S&P 500 Index, the Commerce Department has given hope to those who are thinking of investing in the stock market.  They have also shown people that there may be a direct link between demographics and stocks.
