Market View | Wednesday, April 8, 2020 5:50 PM GMT

EU markets are trimming their recent gains as Eurogroup failed to have an agreement on how to deal with the coronavirus crisis. Mario Centeno, EU Chairman, tweeted “after 16h of discussions we came close to a deal but we are not there yet. I suspended the Eurogroup & continue tomorrow, thu”. 

On the other hand, US stock market is getting stronger again as NYC’s infection rates are showing signs of improvement, while General Motors agreed to produce and deliver 30,000 ventilators to the government by the end of August (for $489.4 millions’ contract).
