ZFX: Hopes for the reopening of the US economy propped up risk appetite

ZFX: Hopes for the reopening of the US economy propped up risk appetite
ZFX: Hopes for the reopening of the US economy propped up risk appetite

Thursday (April 16) Review

 

  • The initial jobless claims in the United States dropped to 5.245 million for the last week, but the figures still slightly more than expected, showing that it may be a deep economic slump caused by the coronavirus outbreak. The analysis generally believes that the figures will remain at the high level in the coming weeks. US stocks indexes fell at the opening due to the investor fears. However, US President Trump announced guidelines for reopening the US economy, stimulating the market sentiment again. The Wall Street three major indexes recovered the loss and closed slightly higher, which the Nasdaq rose 1.66%.

 

  • President Trump announced guidelines for reopening the economy in three phases, but the governors of each state can implement the guidelines according to their own actual situation. Trump once again said that the outbreak in the United States has passed its peak period.

 

  • In response to the unprecedented impact of the global pandemic on crude oil demand, the OPEC once again lowered its forecast for global oil demand this year, coupled with the poor performance of the US job data, the WTI crude futures are still under pressure below $20 level, which hurt the market sentiment.

 

  • The number of confirmed cases worldwide exceeded 2.1 million, and more than 140000 death. However, the rate of increase has eased.

 

  • Before the Asian session on Friday, good news came to the market regarding the antiviral medication “Remdesivir” developed by US pharmaceutical companies. Clinical trials have shown significant effects on the treatment of new coronavirus. The news boosted the stock market in the Asia-Pacific region, and US stock futures are currently soaring, with Dow futures rising more than 800 points.

 

 

ZFX analyst Jacob Leung said that the recent bullish and bearish factors have caused “ups and downs” in the financial markets, which can be normally expected. Of course it is quite worrying about the global recession, but if there is any “breaking” news about the new coronavirus, especially in vaccine development or treatment, we may see a “turning point.”
