US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — US stocks are trading unchanged on Wednesday after a significant rebound the day before, as optimism about $ 2 trillion incentive measures subsides, and concerns about the continued economic impact of the pandemic remain.

Reports that Washington reached an agreement on incentives to help companies and millions of Americans support the market, but fears of an impending global recession and the likelihood of corporate defaults put pressure on it.

“Markets will remain very volatile until one of three things happens: either the number of new infections in the US reaches its peak, some medicine or vaccine appears, or the US economy starts to reopen,” said Randy Watts of William O’Neil + Co.
