Over the week, it was a very good score of + 4.1% which is among the most spectacular of the year 2020.
The CAC40 picked up to + 2.4% on its lowest of the day, between 4.369 and 4.475 (+ 0.7% at the highest of the day), despite the geopolitical context which is deteriorating, and no statistics to restore the optimism since the start of the meeting: “The growing tensions between the United States and China weighed on the equity markets Thursday, with losses mitigated by the figures of American unemployment emerged in line with expectations,” said Liberum.
The Hong Kong stock market fell -5.6% because of the announcement by Pkin of what looks like the burial of the principle ‘1 country, 2 systems’ to which the United States is very attached.

“With the implementation of containment measures, a rebound in economic activity should be observed in May and June,” said his side Aurel BGC, who said however expect a ‘recovery in W’ on world trade.
There were no statistics to put in the mouth to justify any form of optimism: it therefore seems that certain ‘forces’ act to push the indices as high as possible before a 3-day weekend in the States United … and which should be largely devoted to barbecues and shopping.
A study published this Friday table on a contraction of -40.2% of the Canadian economy in the 2nd quarter, yesterday, the chief economist of IHS / Markit anticipated -38% of activity in the United States in Q2.
