Fed unleashes firepower

14 April 2020

Markets started the week in consolidation mode following a strong performance last week after the US Federal Reserve expanded its bond buying programme to include more corporate issuance. The intervention did a lot to further steady credit markets, but investors will be looking closely at earnings as US companies begin reporting in the coming days and weeks.

  • The earnings season is likely to be a bit nervous and we would like to see what bad news comes out before looking at recovery investments
