US stimulus package improved sentiment

Fundamentals

  • The market sentiment is mixed as investors weigh US stimulus package against the rising coronavirus cases. US Democrats are planning to unveil $2.2 trillion dollars to support the economic activity in such a tough time. Everybody has been waiting for this financial aid to be confident in reaching the full recovery soon, that’s why that announcement has cheered up investors for a while. However, the optimism has been offset by the worse-than-expected US unemployment claims. 870 000 people filled for jobless benefits last week, while the forecast was 845 000.
  • Moving on, the Chinese property developer cautioned about a possible upcoming default, which may undermine whole China’s financial system and lead to a cash crunch. The Chinese yuan dropped.
  • Germany recorded 2 321 new virus cases, the highest level in five months. Elsewhere, German ifo Business Climate came out worse than analysts expected: 93.4 vs. the expected 93.9.
