Right after the pandemic broke out in the United Kingdom, the London Stock Exchange had a tumultuous ride in most of its popular indices. Most investors be it domestic or international started pulling out their funds initially given the pace at which the markets were spiraling down. In no time, the London Stock Exchange witnessed record low levels in line with the global financial crash where exchanges were hitting the lower circuit breakers multiple times in a day. Now as the country has decided to open up the lockdown, it is time to explore whether ?the opportunity is right to invest in the London Stock exchange and are the stocks at this time trading at fair prices or are still expensive.
It is also very important at this juncture to look at the London Stock Exchange from a long term perspective as when the country came out of the European Union on 31st?January 2020 it represented a massive opportunity for the country to transform itself and scale new highs in terms of technological and economic development.
Let us look at How have the Larger Indices Performed during the Lockdown
The London stock exchange had already started to feel the heat of the?pandemic?before it hit the countries shores. Most of the companies who had exposure to China started to issue revenue and profit warnings due to several factors including the delayed shipment of components as well as falling sales levels of companies who had sales in China. The situation did have a significant impact on the markets then, but the real bad weather came when the pandemic started to spread in the country and the government was forced to impose a lockdown in the country.
