LGT Navigator: US election becomes a fear factor for investors

Less than six weeks before the US presidential election, there is growing concern about whether the race for the White House will be effectively decided on November 3rd. President Trump seems willing to turn everything upside down and not accept anything but his own victory. For the capital markets, this uncertainty is likely to become more and more of a burden. On Tuesday, the two opponents crossed swords for the first time directly in the first TV debate. However, the demand for technology stocks caused a recovery on Wall Street on Friday.

LGT Navigator: Short-term stabilization, but market environment remains fragile

On equity markets, prices seem to be stabilizing again after the recent losses. However, concerns about the further course of the corona pandemic and the associated fears of another slump, particularly in the US and European economies, continue to create an extremely fragile market environment.

LGT Navigator: The fear of an “endless crisis mode“

After the recent losses, the stock markets initially began to stabilize, but this quickly gave way to a risk-averse attitude on the part of investors in view of the fear of a significant increase in the number of corona cases and renewed lockdowns. Meanwhile, statements from the US Federal Reserve confirmed the highly uncertain economic outlook and the prospect of ultra-low key interest rates in the long term. Furthermore, US President Trump did not want to commit himself to guarantee a smooth handover if he lost the election.

The fear of renewed lockdowns to contain the corona pandemic is making investors more cautious. Nonetheless, the stock indices on Wall Street and, to a large extent, in Asia as well, recovered from their recent setback. While in Washington the Republicans are pushing for a quick replacement in the Supreme Court, US Federal Reserve Chairman Powell is calling for more fiscal stimulus.

LGT Navigator: Corona fear catches up with stock markets again

The fear of a new corona wave, especially in Europe, increased nervousness on capital markets at the beginning of the week. In the US, the election campaign is overshadowed by the dispute over the successor to the late constitutional judge Ginsburg. US President Trump now wants to announce his candidate for the Supreme Court already this week. Against this background, the political leaders in Washington remain divided and a compromise for a further corona aid package seems to be a long way off. US Fed Chairman Powell will emphasize again today that the central bank will use all its instruments to support the economy.
