Online stock trading and its transformation

Coronavirus continues to dominate the headlines. People all over the world are closely monitoring the situation in China, Italy and other countries affected by the coronavirus pandemic. It is not surprising that markets are struggling to stay afloat as authorities across the globe implemented numerous measures to contain the virus.

Hopefully, White House and Senate leaders reached a historic $2 trillion stimulus aid. It took several days to come to an agreement. However, this deal is a huge step forward as without financial aid it would be tough to support the U.S. economy.

Moreover, this deal affected the stock markets in different parts of the world. For example, let’s have a look at the markets in Asia to learn more about the impact of this decision.

Hopefully, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index added about 3.4% as of its final hour of trading.

The Chinese government is working hard to get the economy back on track. Hopefully, Chinese markets also had a good day.
