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.
