Market Update and Insights

COVID-19 Market Update – Thursday, June 4th

  1. The week’s sharp rally in global equities paused on Thursday with stock markets in the U.S. and Europe modestly lower while Asian markets were little changed. Credit spreads were generally tighter as U.S. IG spreads ended the day below 150bps, capping a tightening of over 190bps since U.S. IG credit spreads peaked at 341bps in late March. Brent crude oil prices also continued to gain, ending the day just shy of $40/barrel
  2. The ECB expanded its QE program as it announced an extension to the end of 2021 with an additional 600 billion euros of planned purchases. The larger than expected announcement led to tightening in European periphery yield spreads – particularly the spread between Italy and Germany
  3. The U.S. yield curve continued to steepen as the spread between the 5yr and 30yr rates reached its widest differential since 2016. The curve also steepened in Germany

The COVID-19 crisis is likely to accelerate many underlying, secular disruptive forces already affecting economies and financial markets. This may only increase the difference between those companies, sectors, and countries that are being disrupted, and those that are acting more like disruptors. Distinguishing between the two is becoming crucial.
