MARKET USA / Little movement after three down days | message


The futures contracts on the stock indices point to a little changed start on Wall Street on Friday. This could change somewhat, however, because important economic data are primarily published with retail sales and industrial production. On Thursday, the indices fell for the third day in a row, burdened primarily by the second corona wave in Europe, but also in the USA. The current discussion about new restrictions in the economy hits investors hard on the stomach. In addition, disappointment is spreading on Wall Street that, given the current state of affairs, an aid package for the economy will no longer come about before the elections.

The uncertainty as to when a suitable corona vaccine will be available also continues to cause concern.

An optimistic outlook from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and second-tier business figures determined aftermath trading on Thursday.
