The possibility of a surge in COVID cases was previously identified as a major risk factor. Markets had been recovering, anticipating that the economic boost fueled by government spending programs and a decline of the COVID virus infection rate were in the offing. The extra financial support from the government was serving to temporarily fill the hole left by the first go around of the COVID crisis, while buying time for the economic recovery to take hold. The timetable for returning to business as usual by Q3-2020 is now less certain with the largest global economies experiencing a resurgence of the virus.

The economy, public health and racial equality are shaping up to be the three top issues in a US Presidential election year. This is a hefty mix of issues. The US Dow Jones Index and TSX Composite Index are under renewed pressure. Last week, the US central bank announced a temporary policy to shore up the US banking system, in anticipation the economy will face increasing risk from the rising number of COVID cases. The banking restrictions are supposed to be temporary, at least until it becomes apparent if the COVID threat is growing or just running its course. This will become obvious in less than two weeks.

Comments this week cover the possible outcomes ahead for the COVID pandemic and implications of the temporary application of the new bank stress test guidelines in the US.
