If you’re looking for the best investments to make in 2020, your timing could be good.

For example, last week’s figures from the Office for National Statistics showed a dire plunge in GDP for the second quarter of the year. But there were encouraging signs of recovery in May and June as lockdowns began to ease.

A good time to invest

In the real world, when economies begin to emerge from recession it can be a great time to start or expand a business.  And in the stock market, new bull runs begin at the bottom of bear moves.
