  • There is a growing risk that investors consider equity markets overbought and that could see a correction. It is hard to know when that correction will come, but investors need to be aware of the potential risk.
  • There is also a risk that another break out of COVID-19 could slow down the European economy and weigh on the German stock Allianz SE.
  • News of any new strong COVID-19 variant could invalidate this outlook and cause stock selling.
