Pervasive Virus Fears

Monday, January 27, 2020 - Growing concerns over the spread of the deadly coronavirus led all three major indexes to post losses for the week, as investors focused on the adverse global economic implications of this disease outbreak. These declines mark a departure from the steady rise upwards that stocks have experienced to start this year amid an easing of global trade tensions and encouraging economic data. For the week, the DJIA, S&P 500 and NASDAQ shed 1.2%, 1.0, and 0.8% respectively. These losses snapped the streaks of two-week gains for the DJIA and S&P and six-week gains for the NASDAQ.
