US Market View
Economic optimism can be premature. Throughout the summer and fall it appeared that the US was on its way. More than half the lockdown job losses had been replaced by October, jobless claims had halved from July and pandemic cases were down everywhere in the country. Viral cases were soaring. California closed its economy. Payrolls had collapsed into losses in December and unemployment claims had climbed more than 200,000 by the first week of January. Nonfarm Payrolls are forecast to add 639,000 jobs in March, the highest total since last October. The unemployment rate is expected to fall to 6% from 6.2% in February. Average Hourly Earnings are predicted to gain 0.2% on the month and 4.5% on the year. Average Weekly Hours should rise 0.1 to 34.7.

The S&P500 scaled 4,000 for the first time on Thursday and closed up 1.18% at 4,019.87, extending the benchmark index's gain to nearly 80% from lows in March 2020. The rally has been driven by unprecedented U.S. stimulus measures and expectations that widespread vaccinations against COVID-19 will spur an economic rebound.
USA Key Point
