After US President Donald Trump announced that he was Covid-19, the question of whether Bitcoin, gold and other markets will be affected is now an important issue in mind.
US President Donald Trump announced on his Twitter account about 1 hour ago that the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) test was positive.
US stock futures have increased losses after President Donald Trump said he and his wife tested positive for the coronavirus weeks before the election. In Asia, S&P 500 futures fell 1.21% in the afternoon, while treasury yields also fell. The US dollar, especially the British pound, rose as a sign of risk aversion against the Australian and New Zealand dollars.
Trump had previously said on Twitter that he and his wife were tested for coronavirus. Trump later announced that he and his wife’s test were positive, using the following statements:
“Tonight, our Covid-19 test was positive with my wife. We will immediately begin our quarantine and recovery process. We will get through this TOGETHER! ”
Trump’s positive outcome could cause a new wave of market volatility as investors prepare for the intense contentious presidential election in November. “It has the potential to reduce Trump’s campaigning ability,” said Sean Callow, a currency strategist at Westpac in Sydney.
