Stock Market Today: Markets rebound, Investors Reassured by Beijing’s Response to the Coronavirus

Stock Market News Today — US stocks hit records, with the S&P 500, Nasdaq Composite and Dow Jones Industrial Average each hitting all-time intraday highs soon after the open.

Asian markets rebounded from the previous session’s sell-off. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index rose 1.3 per cent, recovering some of Tuesday’s losses, while shares in mainland China rebounded off year-lows to close higher. European markets nudged higher.

“The spread of a new coronavirus across Asia and into the US is clearly a major public health concern, but we suspect that its economic effects will be modest,” said Jennifer McKeown, head of global economics at Capital Economics.

The coronavirus has killed nine people and infected at least 440 in China, and has since spread to other Asian countries and North America. Controlling the outbreak has now reached a critical stage as more than 100m Chinese prepare to board trains and aeroplanes to return home for the Lunar New Year.

The outbreak has evoked memories of China’s Sars crisis in 2003, but markets have been reassured by a higher degree of urgency and transparency in controlling the disease.

“The speed with which this virus has been identified is testament to changes in public health in China since Sars and strong global co-ordination through the World Health Organisation,” Jeremy Farrar, director of health research foundation Wellcome, said.

In 2003, the Sars outbreak sent Hong Kong into recession and the Hang Seng index fell nearly 7.5 per cent in the first quarter, but the market quickly recovered throughout the rest of the year.

Economists at Deutsche Bank said the effects from an escalation of the coronavirus would be felt in the local retail, travel and hotel and catering industries, but that these would likely recover quickly and most service, trade and manufacturing activities would not be seriously affected.

Investors are moderating their concerns over the virus,” the bank’s strategist Jim Reid said.

Government bonds were stable while the China’s offshore renminbi was flat after its weakest day in five months on Tuesday.
