Darkest Before The Dawn? [Daily Recap]

  • U.S. equity markets accelerated their punishing declines on Monday as the coronavirus outbreak appears increasingly more likely to send the global economy into a near-term recession amid escalating shutdowns.

  • Following 9% declines last week, the S&P 500 finished lower by nearly 12% while the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost nearly 3,000 points after losing 2,600 points last week.

  • The previously outperforming broad-based commercial Real Estate ETF had it's worst day of all time, plunging more than 17% with nearly half of REITs lower by more than 20%.

  • Today's substantial underperformance means that REITs are now underperforming the S&P 500 for the year. For the year, REITs are now lower by 29.5% compared to the 25.5% declines on the S&P 500.

  • Bond markets weren't hit nearly as hard as equity markets today, a sign that the Fed's emergency rate cut and "QE4" did indeed appear to do its job by adding some critically-needed lubricant to the creaking gears of the global financial system.
