USA - Stock Market

A second GDP estimate confirmed the economy contracted at the sharpest rate since 2008 in the first quarter, and available data for the second quarter paints an even bleaker picture. In April, the unemployment rate sky-rocketed past the previous record high set in 1982, while initial jobless claims topped 40 million in the 10 weeks ending 28 May. Coupled with containment measures and limp consumer sentiment, this will be having a severe impact on private consumption—as suggested by a record decline in retail sales in April. Moreover, in the same month industrial production also plunged as firms shut down. On a brighter note, as of June virtually all states have begun to partially reopen, which, coupled with unprecedented fiscal and monetary stimulus, should help stabilize activity in the tail-end of the quarter.
