Stock market news

“US stocks and oil rebound after historic meltdown: April 22, 2020.

Stock snap two-day losing streak

US stocks snapped a two-day losing streak and finished higher on Wednesday.

Investor sentiment received a boost from additional stimulus measures passed by the Senate and a rebound in oil prices, even though the factors that depressed markets earlier in the week persist. The oil market remains broken amid weak demand and storage problems, while coronavirus continues to weigh on corporate earnings and economic data.

The Dow finished up nearly 2%, or 457 points.
The S&P 500 ended 2.3% higher.
The Nasdaq Composite closed up 2.8%.”

Stock market news for April 20, 2020

Stock market news

“Stocks close in the red.
US stocks finished lower on Monday, amid a historic selloff in the oil market.

US oil futures settled in negative territory for the first time in history as demand for the commodity remains thin and storage capacity in the US is at its limit. The May futures contract is also about to expire, which made trading more erratic.

The Dow closed 2.4%, or 592 points, lower. It was the worst day for the index since April 1.
The S&P 500 finished down 1.8%.
The Nasdaq Composite closed 1% lower.”

Economic news

“Five million more Americans file jobless claims as Covid-19 downturn deepens – as it happened. More than twenty million unemployment claims have been filed in the last month across America. US initial claims hit 5.2m last week.

Another wave of grim economic news has shown that America’s economy is sinking into its worst recession in decades.

Another five million US citizens filed jobless claims last week, taking the total laid off since the Covid-19 lockdown began last month to over 22 million.

Economists believe America’s unemployment rate could have already risen to 15%, with further layoffs likely in the coming weeks.”

“The S&P 500 just posted the most daily swings of 3% or greater in more than a decade—even as the stock market hits a 5-week high.

U.S. stocks are attempting to recover from their most recent lows of late March, but the recent market gyrations, even with Tuesday’s positive swing, highlight why this coronavirus-stricken market is one of the most volatile since the 2007-09 financial crisis.

On the bright side, the S&P 500 index SPX, +3.05% finished trade up 84.43 points, or 3.06%, at 2,846.06, marking the broad-market index’s highest level since March 10, when fears about COVID-19 were buckling the market.”

Stock market news April 9, 2020

US stock market news

“Stocks rallied to their best weekly gain in more than four decades on Thursday after the Federal Reserve unexpectedly unleashed a new multi-trillion-dollar stimulus plan to support businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.

The S&P 500’s 1.5% rise Thursday brought its weekly gains to 12.1%, or its best one-week gain since 1974, as the Financials and Real Estate sectors outperformed. U.S. equity markets will be closed Friday in observance of Good Friday.

The Nasdaq posted a 10.6% weekly gain for its best since 2008. The Dow’s 2,666.84-point gain since last Friday marked its best weekly rise in point terms ever, and its 12.7% weekly advance was its best on a percentage basis in two weeks.

Investors also eyed the Department of Labor’s initial jobless claims report, which showed a greater than expected 6.606 million new individuals filed for unemployment insurance last week.”

Economic news today

“The Federal Open Market Committee’s (FOMC) meeting minutes from its scheduled March meeting and emergency meetings will be released Wednesday afternoon. “The minutes of the emergency FOMC meeting in early March, and the mid-March meeting which was held two days earlier than scheduled, may not contain many new insights given how rapidly the economic landscape has been changing over the past couple of weeks,” Capital Economics said in a note April 3.

While the minutes will unlikely reveal many new insights, it will provide more context, according to Nomura. “Given the number of actions taken during March after the 15 March meeting, and the rapidly deteriorating outlook over the month, the minutes may be somewhat stale. However, they may provide more context for how much the Fed is willing to utilize its existing authority or whether any participants suggested seeking an expansion of that authority,” the firm said in a note April 3.”
