TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
That being said, forthcoming commentary from ECB’s Governor, Christine Lagarde, may be crucial in continuing the positive trend. She is slated to speak on Tuesday and will likely offer further insight on the central bank’s response to the crisis.
Apart from commentary, forecasting the impact on upcoming data is near impossible as many of the readings are pre-outbreak so they do not encapsulate the debilitating effects of the coronavirus.
