Wuhan Coronavirus: Still Here

In a stunning demonstration of the extent to which algos control the market, ES soared 56.50 points after the World Health Organization declared the Wuhan coronavirus a public health emergency of international concern.

While it’s true the press conference felt more like a China tourism promo, the declaration in no way reduced the risk the virus poses. Nor did it reduce the potential economic risk or stock market downside.

ES came to its senses after the close, reversing at its SMA10 and dropping back through its SMA20. If today weren’t the last day in January, a month clinging to a positive return for posterity’s sake, we would have seen the next leg down already.Meanwhile, we have scads of economic data coming out at 8:30 and earnings galore to digest.
