Coronavirus Worries Keep a Lid on the Dow’s Rally

The US overtook China to report the most confirmed coronavirus cases in the world late Thursday. Donald Trump brushed the label off, claiming it can be attributed to the U.S. improved testing.

I think it’s a tribute to the testing, we’re testing tremendous numbers of people.

Cases in the US are only expected to rise as unrestricted movement between cities make it difficult to contain the virus.

, a technicality that could postpone the vote for hours or even days.

Powell’s Remarks Dismissed

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell gave investors more to cheer about on Thursday when he confirmed the US central bank had more tools left in its arsenal
