Jobs Losses Mount Amid Shutdowns [Daily Recap]

  • U.S. equity markets gave back all of their weekly gains on Friday as employment data painted a grim picture for the state of the U.S. economy if coronavirus shutdowns persist.

  • After gaining 2.3% yesterday, the S&P 500 finished the day lower by 1.5% while the Dow Jones Industrial Average dipped 361 points after yesterday's 470 point gain.

  • Real estate-related equities ended a brutal week with the broad-based commercial Real Estate ETFs dipping another 1.5% to push their weekly losses to roughly 9%.

  • Mortgage REITs extended their punishing declines to a sixth straight day as mounting uncertainty over the impact of delays in mortgage payment collection compounded with existing short-term liquidity concerns.

  • Nonfarm payrolls plunged by 701k in March, definitively snapping the record-streak of more than 110 consecutive months of employment growth that began in September 2010.
