LGT Navigator: Trump cements conservative majority in the Supreme Court

Just one week before the US presidential election, US President Trump cemented the conservative majority in one of the most important US institutions with the appointment of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Moreover, Trump once again clearly indicated that he would probably not accept an election defeat. Meanwhile, renewed lockdowns due to the continued sharp rise in the number of Covid-19 cases in Europe and the US, and the increasing nervousness ahead of the US elections are causing continuing uncertainty on capital markets. In addition, hopes of the long-anticipated US corona rescue package are dwindling more and more.

LGT Navigator: Capital markets and US elections remain in the firm grip of Covid-19

Investors are still waiting to see whether the political leaders in Washington will succeed in reaching an agreement for another corona aid package. While the still extremely fragile pandemic situation in the US is still not under control and is the dominant issue in the imminent elections, investors are hoping for a Covid-19 vaccine. Positive news in this regard was announced on Friday when the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the drug “Remdesivir“ for the treatment of Covid-19 disease. Meanwhile, fears of an uncontrolled spread of the pandemic and the economic damage of renewed lockdowns are also growing in Europe.

LGT Navigator: Final TV duel between Trump and Biden qualitatively better, but without new impulses

The last TV debate between US President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden was more orderly this time, but not without personal attacks.

Meanwhile, the political situation in the US, the worsening corona pandemic in Europe and also the Brexit negotiations, which are on the brink of collapse, are clouding the situation.

LGT Navigator: Potential for a perfect storm

Investors will probably have to prepare for a period of high uncertainty. It is not only the corona pandemic with its sharp rise in the number of infections in Europe and the danger of renewed lockdowns and massive economic damage that is causing problems, but also the approaching US elections with an unpredictible outcome. In addition, the US corona aid package is still pending and the uncertain outcome of the UK's exit negotiations with the EU. All these factors of uncertainty now seem to be concentrated at about the same time ­ a perfect storm?

LGT Navigator: US Corona economic stimulus package is one of the chips in the election poker

According to Nancy Pelosi, spokeswoman of the US House of Representatives, negotiations are now to continue until the end of this week in order to achieve a breakthrough for a new US economic stimulus package. Pelosi and Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin had agreed on further points. In the meantime, tension in the US election campaign is rising and with it the fear of a stalemate. In addition, the US Senate is now expected to vote next Monday on the appointment of Trump's candidate for the Supreme Court.
