The last trading session saw a more aligned shift to risk-off as concern about the impact of Covid-19 on global economies resurfaced. However, most chart patterns are in a time-out kind of mode with price action consolidating on low momentum. President Trump is just out claiming the peak of the virus has passed in the USA so let's hope he is right! The S&P500 is still lurking under the 2,900 - 3,000 level which I see as the make or break level for recovery / decline with the index.
