World Stock Markets Set Record Three-Month Gain (Carpe Diem)

For the third month in a row, the World Federation of Exchangesreported a significant gain in world stock market capitalization for the month of October, with a $1.6 trillion increase that pushed the total value of world stocks to $51.8 trillion (see chart).  The October increase follows gains of $2.8 trillion in August and $3.8 trillion in September, for a cumulative three-month gain of $8.2 trillion from August-October, one of the largest three-month gains ever.  From the cyclical low of $26.6 trillion in February 2009, the world stock valued has almost doubled to just under $52 trillion last month, and provides further evidence of a worldwide economic recovery and global bull market rally.
