Growth in stock market records …
2019 marks a record rise in the global stock market over many years. In January-February, the MSCI EM share index in developing countries rose to a maximum from 2012 (+ 10%), and the US stock market (S & P 500) fully set 32-year growth by 12% (maximum since the beginning of 1987). The Chinese stock market has the best performance since 2000.
… to close short positions and print money
Interestingly, the world stock market is growing against the backdrop of a sharp deterioration in macroeconomic statistics, offset by the growth in world money supply, which was restored in November * (see graph above). Keep in mind that the EM share market is much more correlated with the dynamics of the global aggregator M2 than with the S & P 500.
In February, experts from several banks included Bank of America, wrote that the main reason for the rapid recovery of the S & P 500 (between equity funding from mutual fund and exchange (ETF)) after the December collapse was the extreme bear market position.

Now the stock market is heavily overbought

Within the rising equity indices, EM stock market volatility has fluctuated for the fourth consecutive month, which has not happened since June 2014. And the correlation between the stock market dynamics of EM and gold, which persisted for most of last year, has reached the highest negative values since November 2016. Oleg Syrovatkin
