MERCADO EEUU:Indices caen en el día, pero Dow tiene mejor semana desde 1938

Mar 27, 2020 (Grupo CMA via COMTEX) —

São Paulo, 27 de marzo de 2020 – Los principales índices de acciones de Estados Unidos cayeron de forma acentuada en la sesión de hoy, devolviendo algunas fuertes ganancias alcanzadas durante los tres días anteriores, para terminar un día volátil en Wall Street. Por otro lado, en la semana, consolidaron fuertes ganancias, con el Dow Jones en su mejor performance desde 1938. La confianza fue afectada cuando los inversores pasaron a concentrarse en la pandemia del nuevo coronavirus, después que los Estados Unidos se volvieron el país con más casos confirmados del mundo. De acuerdo con el conteo de la Universidad de Johns Hopkins, Estados Unidos tiene 97.028 casos del nuevo coronavirus, el mayor del mundo., El país que lo sigue es Italia, con 86.498 casos y tercero está China, con 81.897 casos. Hasta ayer, China era el país con más enfermos de COVID-19 en el mundo, después que el primer caso fue descubierto en diciembre de 2019. “La extrema incertidumbre en relación al impacto final de la pandemia promovió el escepticismo en Wall Street sobre si las acciones alcanzarían el nivel más bajo el lunes. Los índices accionarios subieron en las tres sesiones anteriores, mientras los mercados aplaudían la enorme cantidad de respuestas de política fiscal y monetaria del Congreso y del Banco Central, que ayudaron a ofuscar el pico récord de pedidos de seguro de desempleo en el país”, dijeron los analistas de Schwab en un artículo.

Dow Plummets Over 900 Points Despite US Stimulus Bill Clearing Congress

Erasing some of its gains made over a three-day rally, the Dow Jones Industrial Average index took a sharp plunge on Friday despite the US Congress passing a hotly debated stimulus package to blunt the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Closing another week of volatile trading, the Dow index fell by 915.39 points, as the S&P 500 slid 88.60 points. The Nasdaq Composite saw a 295.16-point dip into red territory. The Dow’s sharp dive was largely fueled by Boeing’s more than 10% plunge, as well as Disney and Exxon Mobil declining more than 6%.

The day prior, the Dow marked its biggest three-day surge since 1931, having spiked over 20% since opening on Tuesday.

Although most Asian markets managed to maintain their positions in green territory despite a 5% slip by the Australia Securities Exchange index, the same could not be said for European markets, which saw the German Dax Performance index fall by 368.44 points and the UK’s Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 index shrink by 305.40 at closing.

Slumped trading in European markets came as UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced earlier Friday that he had tested positive for the coronavirus and as European Union leaders continue to work out how best to protect their nations’ economies amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Oil prices, meanwhile, have continued to see weekly losses. West Texas Intermediate crude and Brent crude figures dropped Friday by 4.51% and 5.88%, respectively.

Stimulus Bill Clears Congress, Heads to Trump

With just a few hours before closing, US stocks moved closer to green territory after news broke that the $2 trillion coronavirus relief bill had passed in the US House of Representatives Friday.

The measure was passed despite initial objections

Dow Drops 900 as US Virus Cases Top 100,000

Wall Street stocks tumbled on Friday, ending a massive three-day surge after doubts about the fate of the U.S. economy resurfaced and the number of coronavirus cases in the country climbed.

U.S. stocks deepened their losses late in the session, even after the House of Representatives approved a $2.2 trillion aid package – the largest in American history – to help people and companies cope with an economic downturn caused by the coronavirus outbreak and provide hospitals with urgently needed medical supplies.

The United States has surpassed China and Italy as the country with the most coronavirus cases. The number of U.S. cases passed 100,000, and the death toll exceeded 1,500.

“We have still not fully understood the degree of the economic impact,” warned Massud Ghaussy, senior analyst at Nasdaq IR Intelligence in New York.

“Currently, from a policymaker’s perspective, it’s a relative balance between managing the spread of the virus and opening the economy.”

After the market closed, President Donald Trump signed the stimulus package into law.

The bill, along with unprecedented policy easing by the Federal Reserve, helped the S&P 500 surge 10.2% for the week, its best week since 2009. But the U.S. stock market benchmark is still down about 25% from its February high.

In its strongest three-day performance since 1931, the Dow surged 21% in three straight days through Thursday, establishing it in a bull market, according to one widely used definition. Even after Friday’s drop, the Dow ended 12.8% higher, its best week since 1938.

Many investors see a strong risk the market could fall deeply again as coronavirus infections increase and more people die, however.

“Next week will depend on what happens over the weekend,” said Lindsey Bell, chief investment strategist at Ally Invest. “If there is a major acceleration over the weekend of coronavirus cases in

Dow ends sharply lower, but books biggest weekly gain since 1938 in bounce after coronavirus-inspired rout

U.S. stock indexes ended sharply lower Friday, failing to get a lasting lift from approval by Congress of a $2 trillion economic stimulus package to counter the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, but equities booked double-digit weekly gains to take back a chunk of losses seen this month.

How are benchmarks performing?

The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -4.05% dropped 915.39 points, or 4.1%, to end at 21,636.78, while the S&P 500 index SPX, -3.36% fell 88.60 points, or 3.4%, to 2,541.47. The Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, -3.78% lost 295.16 points, or 3.8%, to finish at 7,502.38.

On Thursday, the Dow marked its best three-day gain since 1931, while it was the best such gain for the S&P since 1933. Despite Friday’s decline, the Dow booked a 12.8% weekly advance, its strongest since 1938, while the S&P 500 rose 10.3% for its biggest such jump since 2008. The Nasdaq’s 9.1% weekly rise was the biggest since March 2009.

Since their peaks, the Dow still stands 26.8% below its record high, the S&P 500 is down 25% from its Feb. 19 peak and the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, -3.78% is off 23.6% from its all-time high.

What’s driving the market?

The week’s sharp stock-market rebound was attributed part to optimism over the U.S. fiscal stimulus plan in concert with aggressive monetary policy easing by the Federal Reserve and other major central banks. Analysts, however, warned that stocks could still see significant pressure

Dow skids 915 points lower and snaps 3-day win streak, but logs best week in 82 years as Trump set to sign coronavirus rescue

The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended another volatile week lower Friday, but not before the blue-chip index notched its best weekly gain since 1938, as President Donald Trump was set to sign into law an important coronavirus rescue package just after the market’s close. The Dow DJIA, -4.05% fell 915 points, or 4.1%, at around 21,636, the S&P 500 index SPX, -3.36% closed 89 points, or 3.4%, at 2,542, while the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, -3.78% ended the session down 3.7% at around 7,502. For the week, the Dow booked a gain of 12.8%, which marks its best weekly gain since 1938, according to FactSet data. The S&P 500 notched a weekly gain of 10.3%, representing its sharpest weekly rise since 2008, while the Nasdaq Composite Index booked a 9.1% weekly gain. In addition to the fiscal response, the week was marked by the Federal Reserve announcing an unlimited bond-buying program to loosen seized up parts of the financial markets. All these factors helped to boost the market but deep-set worries about when he virus will ultimately peak as investors worried. Trump’s planned signing of the coronavirus relief package would follow news that the U.S. has become the country with the highest number of COVID-19 cases. It also comes after a record 3.28 million Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week due to the outbreak, earlier in the week, highlighting growing signs of the impact of the deadly infection. The turbulent week also saw the Dow and the S&P 500 notch three straight days of gains, until Friday, as investors cheered the planned fiscal measures by the U.S. government. Moves in the Dow
