Market Update for Apr 1, 2020

In today's update:

1) U.S. Equity markets suffered big losses again on Wednesday as job losses mount and the coronavirus death toll climbs. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 973.65 or 4.44%, the S&P 500 fell 114.09 or 4.41% while the NASDAQ 100 closed lower by 339.52 or 4.41% and the Russell 2000 finish lower by 81.11 or 7.03%.

2) Crude Oil Futures bounced slightly despite U.S. inventory growth while Gold Futures added $5.10 or 0.32%. The Bond market showed strength while the 10-Year Treasury Note settled at 0.635%.

3) The ADP National Employment report was released before market open this morning and confirmed that private-sector employment decreased by 27000 jobs from February to March. This does not reflect the full impact of Covid-19 on the overall employment situation. Tomorrow, the Jobless Claims report for last week will be released followed by the full Employment Situation report on Friday.
