New Record for US Jobless Claims

Market View | Thursday, April 2, 2020 4:09 PM GMT

Almost 10 million people have filed for employment benefits in the past two weeks as the Jobless Claims increased by 6.6 million this week.  As NY Times reports “ Until last month, the worst week for unemployment filings was 695,000 in 1982”. 

Due to this, US indices lost most of their pre-session profits and they are slightly positive for now. Additionally, the US 10-year Treasury yield dropped for a second consecutive day which means that Investors are leading to safe-assets once again. On Thursday Fitch published its report where “expects global economic growth to decline sharply in 2020 and now estimates that the UK's GDP could fall by close to 4% in 2020 in its baseline forecast, followed by a sharp recovery in 2021”.
