In a nutshell the answer is yes. Recessions, depressions and pandemics are all great times to invest in both the Forex industry and the Stock Market.
In terms of stocks think of it like this, Do you like offers? Would you like the latest Sony smart tv for a 50% reduction on the price? Oh course you would. Stocks are no different. Companies like Coca-Cola, BP, Tesla and others are still great companies to own shares in, just now you can pick up a bit of discount on them, if you want to own the shares. Load up I would say, but remember investing is four the long term expect to hold the share for a minimum period of 5year and you will be well rewarded.
In terms of Forex it is also a great time to invest, as uncertainty creates volatility and this creates a lot of movement in the Forex markets. Volatility is what you want as a Forex traders because it provides you with more opportunities to make money. If the markets are quiet and stagnant it can be a lot harder to make money. Traders love volatility.
