Thursday, March 26, 2020 11:53 AM GMT

Stock markets are reversing to the downside once again as the short-term Traders proceed to profit-taking as well as COVID-19’s spread is getting wider day after day. The infections reached 475k globally, deaths are above 21k while 114k cases have been recovered.  Italy and Spain surpassed China in deaths while the USA’s infection rate is really fast. In the meantime, the economic data are not helping the markets as  UK Office for National Statistics announced “ In the three months to February 2020, the quantity bought in retail sales fell for the fourth consecutive month by 0.6%” while Rolf Bürkl, GfK Consumer Expert, explains “ "In light of the current development, we are withdrawing our consumer forecast of one percent growth for 2020. Retailers, manufacturers and service providers must prepare for a recession,".

Most EU indices are moving lower recording from 1 to 2% losses while the Asian market closed mostly in red. Nikkei fell sharply -4.51% as Japan is ready to declare a state of emergency due to the coronavirus. On the other hand, China is still smoothing its measures on Hubei.
