This week, sell pressure dominated in eight (8) of the fourteen (14) stock markets under our coverage, with Europe being the worst hit. This trend was mainly driven by the resurgence in the number of cases of Coronavirus infection in European countries such as the UK, Italy, Germany, France, and Russia, as well as in the U.S.

In the U.S., two of the three broadest market indices, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite index lost 0.10% and 0.31% w/w respectively, save for the DJIA which gained 0.52% w/w. In major markets across Europe, the UK FTSE 100, the German DAX, and France CAC 40 all lost 1.00%, 1.61%, and 0.22% w/w respectively.
