1) U.S. Equity markets plummet on escalating concerns over the coronavirus and the negative impact it could have on the global economy. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 1031.61 points or 3.56% and the S&P 500 fell 111.86 or 3.35% while the NASDAQ 100 closed lower by 355.31 or 3.71% and the Russell 2000 finished lower 50.51 or 3.01%.
2) Crude Oil Futures fell as much as 5% before closing down $1.95 or 3.65% while Gold Futures soared another $28.00 or 1.7% and the U.S. dollar showed weakness. The Bond market hit new highs while the yield on the 10-Year Treasury Note settled at 1.374%.
3) Today's Equity Market sell-off was the worst one-day drop in 2 years but it could get much worse very quickly. After-market close, United Airlines (UAL) withdrew its 2020 guidance while MasterCard Inc. (MA) lowered its full-year 2020 guidance and this will most likely become a very common theme. Stay tuned for more.
