J.P. Morgan Chase strategist Marko Kolanovic expects the stock market surge to continue through 2021 as the coronavirus recovery intensifies and volatility subsides.

As markets were falling apart in mid-March, Kolanovic called a recovery that has seen the S&P 500 post a 14% gain in 2020 after a breakneck dive into bear market territory at the pandemic's outset.

In his look ahead to next year, J.P. Morgan's global head of macro quantitative and derivatives research, expects a confluence of factors to bring another strong year.
