  • There was a rumor about the investment bank Goldman Sachs may merge with Wells Fargo to enhance its competitiveness. The rally of bank stocks boosted the Wall Street sentiment.

 

  • The initial jobless claims in the US totaled 2.98 million, which was a drop for six consecutive weeks, but still higher than expectations of 2.5-2.7 million.

 

  • The June contract for WTI crude futures surged 9%, breakthrough $27 level. The hopes on reopening global economies and the production cuts are the key supports to the oil market, making the demand and supply much more balancing.

 

  • US President Trump has warned in an interview that he could “cut off the whole relationship” with China, further escalating the tension between China and the US. He said that he is very disappointed with China in handling the spread of the coronavirus. In addition, he also pointed out that he may examine those Chinese companies listed on the US stock exchange, regarding US accounting regulations.

 

  • The global pandemic of new coronavirus is still severe, with 4.4 million confirmed cases worldwide and more than 300000 deaths.
