As covered yesterday, market sentiment for risk was very much restored, given the stabilization with Covid-19 spreading in Europe’s hotspots. The likes of; Spain, Italy and France, have seen a notable slowdown in rising cases and deaths.

The updated statistics initially provided a nice strong boost to European stocks, then the U.S. followed suit. Gold was rallying, given how bid stocks were, this is a typical institutional practice of hedging against all of the risk of backing stocks aggressively.
