ATFX-A Global Leader in Online Trading
ATFX Market Outlook, 2020 Mar 13
Personal opinions today:
The spread of new coronavirus around the world and an increase in cases in the United States and Europe have hit a wide range of industries, leading to an expected plunge in corporate profits and a rise in risk aversion. Dow futures fell more than 2,000 points yesterday, global stocks followed. The federal reserve's renewed efforts to buy back Treasury securities did little to ease sentiment last night. But Asia today after the market opened low, followed by buying. If today before the weekend, investors lock in profits and cover short positions, global stocks have a chance to rebound. Especially in the Dow future.
In addition, it is worth noting that the global economic weakness, the recent investment market has also reflected. Believe that before the weekend, investors may profit to close the position or because of the profit lock, short-covering is expected to be related to the currency and global stock market short term after the rise. The fall in gold prices is also likely to stabilize ahead of next week's announcements by the federal reserve and the bank of Japan, two central Banks, on interest rates.
