Financial Planner’s morning report – Monday

It was another strong finish for the ASX 200 on Friday, adding 0.4% and finishing the week up 2.6% on the back of rally in both the healthcare and communications sectors. CSL Ltd (ASX:CSL), up 2.7%, and Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX:TLS), 4.0%, were the standouts. The market continues to improve despite the worsening COVID-19 case numbers in Victoria and the US which seem likely to result in a second round of shutdown measures.

Financial Planner’s morning report – Monday

Global sharemarkets will begin the week on a negative footing as it appears the second wave is upon us. Several of the US largest southern states contributed to an all-time high in cases, whilst similar outbreaks in Germany and to a less extent in Melbourne, are making investors nervous once again.

Financial Planner’s morning report – Thursday

The ASX 200 (ASX:XJO) finished marginally higher again on Wednesday, adding 0.2%, driven primarily by technology names including Afterpay Ltd (ASX:APT) and Xero Ltd (ASX:XRO) after both reached all-time highs. These gains will be reversed today as US markets tumbled heavily, down between 2% and 3%, as the resurgence in COVID-19 cases continued to grow; this must be investors worst nightmare.
