On Tuesday (March 31), investor sentiment became cautious again. With the bullish news, the three major Wall Street indexes all fell, which the Dow lost more than 400 points, closed 1.84% lower.
It is reported that the US government are drafting a new economic stimulus plan to deal with the impact of the US economy hit by the epidemic. “Bloomberg” quoted information that White House officials have drawn up a list of about $600 billion in accordance with the needs of various government agencies, including providing more funding to state governments, supporting the mortgage market and tourism.
In addition, “Bloomberg” quoted sources as saying that the Trump administration may defer tariffs for most-favored nations for 3 months on some imported goods, and will be announced in the form of executive order as soon as this week, but it does not include Chinese goods and tariffs of steel and aluminum. However, the news has limited stimulus effect to the market sentiment.
On Tuesday, the important figures performed well. In Asian session, China announced that the manufacturing PMI in March was 52, and the non-manufacturing PMI was 52.3, both were better than expected. In US session, the Chicago PMI in March was 47.8, far better than the expected 40. Furthermore, the consumer confidence index of US in March was 120, far better than the expected 110. Again, the figures can only boost the market in a very short term.
The weak oil prices were supported by some good news on Tuesday. After the rebound in Asian and European session, oil prices lost momentum again.

President Trump has called for citizens to prepare for the next two crucial weeks.
