At issue is the so-called virus “second wave”. LA county locked down for three months last night and US chief medical officer, Anthony Fauci, warned everyone to stay shut. Germany saw bigger case numbers. Emerging markets are awash with the virus. China has seen more cases as well.

As well, the US senate proposed the COVID-19 Accountability Act, complete with sanctions, which sounds rather ominous, and El Trumpo banned public super from investing in China.
S&P futures have awoken with a start:
