The global sharemarket has recovered about 50 per cent of the losses incurred in the sell-off during February and March. However, a further V-shaped recovery for equities is likely to be dependent on the global economy being restarted quickly. A V-shaped economic recovery is also unlikely, according to economists. Josh Williamson of Citigroup expects Australia’s economic growth to fall by 5.8 per cent in 2019-20, before rebounding by 6.1 per cent in 2020-21. However, he does not expect the economy to return to pre-virus growth levels until late 2021.
