Episode 236: Daily Covid and Markets Podcast - Wednesday, April 22
The market rallied quite a bit today, coming off of the two ~600 point down days that started the week. Oil prices were up 22% (from their very low level, mind you) and they are at least now only showing the June contract vs. the delivery/storage fiasco in the May contract that was taking place Monday and Tuesday. Futures were pointing to a 250-point increase when I woke up this morning, and throughout the day markets traded roughly between +250 and +500. The +450 close was off of the high of the day that came ten minutes before the close.
