Jurrien Timmer’s market outlook - November 23, 2020
Play • 26 min

Jurrien Timmer, Director of Global Macro, believes that if there is less fiscal stimulus relief now, and the Democrats take over in January, trillions of dollars could be released then. If the Republicans hold the Senate, however, there will likely be less relief, and the markets are pricing in that possibility. Jurrien thinks the market is struggling right now to do so, and as a result, the S&P 500 Index has been flat for several weeks as markets wait for more information. Last week, the markets saw $53 billion in inflows; while this is a large number, Jurrien notes there are still trillions in money market funds and hundreds of billions going in and out of bond funds. After years of outflow, he is not that surprised that equity funds are taking in billions. It could be a signal that investors are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel regarding COVID-19, and that there might be a better environment ahead in 2021.

Ain't Nothing But A 5G Thing: A Deep Dive Into The Top Performing 5G ETF (WUGI)
The focus of a multitude of conspiracy theories across the nether regions of the internet, the returns provided by playing the move to 5G have been anything but fake. According to Esoterica Capital CEO Bruce Liu, the move to 5G is not so much an upgrade to an existing tech cycle as a re-envisioning of the entire tech stack. Investors should take note when Liu discusses anything 5G-related: his firm's flagship ETF, WUGI, has doubled up on peers FIVG and NXTG since launching in late March, returning nearly 100%.

New Lessons for Remote Education
Education was one of the pandemic’s first casualties. When schools closed overnight, students and teachers switched to virtual classrooms—a massive social experiment that hasn’t been easy on anyone. But it also revealed opportunities to rethink the ways in which we teach, and what is most valuable in education. Host Sonari Glinton speaks with students and teachers to find out how their lives have changed when it comes to school. Eight-year-old Escher Olson moved to a new country with his family, so that he could go to school in person rather than virtually. His mother, Sophie Olson, talks about why they made that decision. Olivia Clarke, a 16 -year-old student—and new author—opted into remote learning at her private girls school. She noticed that, like her, everyone else in her grade who did the same was Black. Ilana Drake and Pratham Dalal talk about what they fear losing when they can’t attend high school in person. Professor and teacher Lindy Elkins-Tanton says online learning will fail if we don’t change how we teach. And elementary school teacher Eppie Miller built an outdoor classroom to help her students through the pandemic.
