Should we be concerned?
I totally agree with you on the state of the US economy.
Just look at the DJI (dow jones industrial) index of the US economy in march and the STI (singapore index)
There was a massive sell off in the market due to fear for the virus.
This massive sell off in the US also stimulates sell of in other stock markets all over the world.
It shows that majority of investors are trading in the US markets as that is where most giant companies prefer to list their stock in.
Investors like me, invest in the US market and SG market.
So imagine me as an investor, fearing about my US stocks, it would also lead to fear of holding my SG stocks. Hence selling off all of my positions.
I hope the above explains the theory, it might not be true but at least is makes sense for me.
