US Market View

Global stocks eyed a fresh record high on Monday as signs of economic recovery in Asia, recent strong corporate earnings, and hopes of a COVID-19 vaccine bolstered investor sentiment. US stock futures in turn pointed to a positive start for Wall Street later in the day. The prospect of economic recovery also helped oil prices strengthen, with both Brent crude futures and West Texas Intermediate up around 1%, just off their intraday highs. The number of new cases across the US rose on Friday to a daily record of over 177 000, the fourth straight day an all-time high was set, according to a Reuters tally of figures from US public health agencies. Governors in several states, including California, Oregon, and Washington have urged residents to avoid traveling out of state, amid concerns that the coming holiday travel season would accelerate already alarming spikes in infections and hospitalizations. Since the pandemic began, the virus has infected 10 690 665 people in the US, killing 243 580 of them, according to a Reuters tally.
