Amazon leads US Stocks rally

Today’s Waves – 12th October

Amazon leads US Stocks rally

Amazon shares rose by  6% on Monday as its annual “Prime Day” shopping event commences tomorrow.

Rallies in tech giants boosted U.S. indices with the S&P 500 now nearing its 3,584 all-time high. Markets have continued to rally despite polls showing President Trump’s net approval rating at an all-time low. This has been credited to his handling of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Twitter was another big mover, up 5.35%, whilst Ford Motors was up 5.3%. Overall, the S&P 500 was up  1.92%,  and the NASDAQ was up 2.88%.

PM sets new lockdown measures in the UK

With coronavirus cases in the UK rising at a faster pace than in March (when a national lockdown was put in place), Boris Johnson was today forced to set new measures in the hope of slowing down the spread.

The new format will be as follows, Tier 1 (Medium risk), Tier 2 (High) or Tier 3 (Very high). The PM is set to outline which parts of the UK will fall under each category at a press conference this evening.

The move aims to standardise regional restrictions, while avoiding a full scale lockdown, which the PM strongly opposes, the FTSE 100 was down 0.25% on the news.

The Nikkei 225 was down 0.26%, whilst USDJPY fell to an intraday low of 105.25
