LGT Navigator: Situation on US job market eases noticeably (for the time being)

Following the rapid easing of corona restrictions, employment in the US has risen significantly for the second consecutive month.

Investors continue to focus on the unclear pandemic situation, especially in the US. Lockdowns that have been imposed again in some cases and an outlook for the US economy that is “exceptionally uncertain“ in the opinion of Federal Reserve Chairman Powell are causing uncertainty. On the other hand, economic data are pointing to a recovery. On Wall Street, cautious optimism again prevailed after the previous losses. However, the capital markets remain torn between corona worries and the hoped-for rapid economic recovery.

LGT Navigator: Market sentiment and global economic prospects remain under the spell of the virus

The coronavirus pandemic remains the dominant topic on the capital markets. Rapidly rising infection figures in the US, an uncontrolled spread in Brazil and signs of a second wave in some European countries are dampening investor sentiment. Renewed, at least local, lockdowns are endangering the hoped-for economic recovery. This is leaving a high degree of uncertainty on the international capital markets and causes investors to remain risk-averse at the beginning of the week.
