US Market View

US stocks are seen opening higher Tuesday, rebounding from the previous session’s losses with investors looking for additional fiscal stimulus amid continued political turmoil. The United States lost more than 22 000 lives to Covid-19 last week, a second straight weekly record. The overall death toll is now 375 000. The current surge, and the associated economic damage, prompted President-elect Joe Biden to promise further economic stimulus “in the trillions of dollars” late last week. More details are expected to follow in a formal announcement on Thursday, something that is supporting markets at their current elevated level.

USA Key Point

  • Gold gains 1% on the day as buyers keep a defense of key support level
  • German chancellor Merkel expects lockdown to last until early April
  • The GBP is the strongest and the USD is the weakest
  • European equities pare gains as sentiment stays rather mixed on the session
