What's going on in the markets

The global financial markets remain under pressure, with European and Asian indices nursing minor losses amid a steady flow of negative coronavirus news. The number of new cases passed 700,000 with each day worse than the previous one.

Regulators and governments promise to do what it takes to support the economy, however, the upside momentum on markets of risk assets has tarted fading away already. The US economy may tae a major hit as “social distancing” measures would remain in place until at least April 30, while his top medical expert of the country suggested that the disease may claim 100,000-200,000 lives.

The cryptocurrency market recovery is uncorrelated to equities; however, Bitcoin's safe-haven status is unconfirmed.
