And WHO's director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told the virtual health forum organised by Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

"The pandemic is still accelerating… We know that the pandemic is much more than a health crisis, it is an economic crisis, a social crisis and in many countries a political crisis… Its effects will be felt for decades to come."

…but this time stocks are bid…

But we note that The Dow remains well below the 50DMA…

Infrastructure stimulus chatter provided the fodder to buy every dip. Nasdaq Composite is up 7 days in a row – its longest streak since Dec 2019 – a new record closing high. However, today's rally merely filled the gap from a week ago and was unable to breakout…

On the day, Nasdaq and Small Caps outperformed with the latter up over 3% from Sunday night opening lows… things went a little bit turbo late on as Texas Governor said the virus was spreading at an unacceptable rate but that was quickly bid on Illinois headlines:

  • 1513ET *TEXAS GOVERNOR SAYS VIRUS IS SPREADING AT UNACCEPTABLE RATE

  • 1545ET *ILLINOIS 7-DAY POSITIVITY RATE FELL TO 2% FROM 13% A MONTH AGO

Since the open on Friday, something has changed – Gold and bonds are bid as stocks are lower…

And finally, as if you needed another example, Bloomberg notes that stocks worldwide are in the midst of an “epic divergence” from the economic-policy outlook, according to Luca Paolini, Pictet Asset Management Ltd.’s chief strategist.

Paolini cited the gap between the MSCI World Index’s earnings yield, which falls as prices rise, and government-bond yields in a Twitter post Friday. The MSCI World’s spread to the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Government Index narrowed 2.4 percentage points through last week from a March 23 peak, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. By contrast, the Global Economic Policy Uncertainty Index rose to records in April and May.
