Highlights

  • The Covid-19’s economic damages start to be felt, we expect an unprecedented GDP contraction in Q2 in both, Europe and the US. Tentative signs of recovery in China.

  • The policy action in the US has been quick and massive. The ECB stepped up bond purchases and liquidity injections. A coordinated EU fiscal response lags behind.

  • A true market turnaround would need a peak in contagion and more clarity on fiscal policy in Europe.

  • The biggest concern is in the credit market, but government intervention and central banks’ buying stabilize investment grade (IG) bonds.
