Review: the market was expecting the US will soon reopen the economy

On Tuesday (April 14), optimism continued as the market was expecting the US will soon reopen the economy, and the coronavirus outbreak in Europe showed signs of easing. The news boosted the investor confidence, driving the Wall Street three major indexes all rose, of which the Nasdaq continued to rise strongly by nearly 4%, a four consecutive trading days rally.

After the holidays, as oil prices continued to slump, which the WTI crude futures fell more than 10% on Tuesday, reached the day low $19.95, the sentiment once turns to a bit risk averse. Investors generally believe that even if OPEC+ and other major oil-producers have made the agreement of production cut, it will be still difficult for offsetting the decline in crude oil demand due to the global pandemic.

The drop of the oil prices has made the market became cautious. But, the White House economic adviser Kudlow revealed that President Trump will likely issue guidelines for reopening economy within two days, which stimulated market sentiment again.

ZFX analyst Jacob Leung said that the overall views on the outbreak are still relatively cautious, as more than 210 countries worldwide have already approached 2 million confirmed cases. However, whenever there is good news, in the short term, one of the market normal practices is to magnify bullish factors and ignore those negative factors.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has predicted that the new coronavirus pandemic will surely cause a global economic recession this year, and the global economy will shrink by 3%. The performance will be the worst since the Great Depression of the 1930s, and no country will be immune.

ZFX analyst Jacob Leung said that in the second quarter, it is alert to pay more attention to the financial market conditions, which the subsequent impacts caused by the global outbreak will emerge more and more specifically, including unemployment problems, corporate debt problems or bank credit losses.

Of course, the stimulus policies all around the world may make the market conditions even more variable. It should be noted that the Fed has launched several packages, releasing huge amount of funds. The liquidity problem earlier in the market has been alleviated. ZFX analyst Jacob Leung said that once opportunities come in the market, "hot money" will be released to bid those risky assets. It is observed that the recent drop of the dollar has generally supported the market sentiment.
