Equity Market Talking Points:

  • Global equity markets have lost over $6.5 trillion.
  • Major global indices have all fallen by over 25% as of this morning.

Global Equity Markets Continue to Suffer as WHO Outlook Worsens

The World Health Organization released a statement yesterday on the Coronavirus outbreak, now regarding it as a global pandemic. Europe is the new China on the forefront of the virus, and fear has continued to ensue in global equity markets. The global equities market has lost well over six trillion dollars to date - a number that will continue to swell on this poor news.

This morning, the S&P opened over 4.0% below yesterday’s close, and then continued by falling another 3.0% after the US open. Within minutes, trading halted as the S&P hit 2549.05. Likewise, the US Dow Jones Industrial Average is down over 25% as of today.

The German DAX 30 is currently trading over 31.50% below mid-February highs along with the French CAC 40 that finds itself over 32.0% off of highs. As noted earlier, Europe is now acting as the forefront of the outbreak, visible in the fact that the selloff has been more exaggerated in the French and German markets.

There is, however, one market that has begun to show some resilience amid the chaos. The Nikkei 225 index out of Japan has fallen by only 23.0%, which, when compared to its American and European counterparts, is less severe.
