Stocks Pummeled, Havens Jump as Virus Fears Mount: Markets Wrap
(Bloomberg) -- Stocks tumbled globally alongside U.S. equity futures on Monday as nations struggled to keep the coronavirus epidemic from spreading further beyond China. Treasuries jumped with gold.In a dramatic day across markets, these were some of the standout moves:The Stoxx Europe 600 Index slid as much as 3.4%, heading for its biggest drop since 2016, as investors fled travel and luxury shares. A gauge of credit risk on the region's high-yield companies rose the most since March 2018.Contracts on the three main U.S. stock indexes were all down more than 2%, while the yield on 10-year Treasuries sank to its lowest since 2016.South Korea's benchmark dropped 3.9%, leading declines across Asia, though Japan's markets were shut for a holiday.Spot gold approached $1,700, while Brent crude oil tumbled 3%.The risk-off mood was triggered by multiple outbreaks of the virus beyond its origin in China, with South Korea reporting a jump in infections, while Italy locked down an area of 50,000 people near Milan. Finance chiefs and central bankers from the largest economies warned this weekend that they saw the virus bringing downside risks to global growth.Risk assets are reeling as governments and companies grapple to contain the outbreak of a novel pathogen that can be transmitted by people without symptoms. Adding to the confusion was China's announcement that the quarantine of Wuhan would be eased, and then retracting the statement. "While the coronavirus is probably slowing in China, it is speeding u

Malaysian Upheaval Set to End World's Longest Equity Bull Run
(Bloomberg) -- The world's longest stock-market bull run was set to end its 12-year reign as political turmoil helped push Malaysian equities down more than 20% from their peak.The FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI Index was down 2.7% as of 4:10 p.m. in Kuala Lumpur, extending the drop from its April 2018 all-time high to over 21%. The benchmark had been in a bull run since 2008, rebounding from the global financial crisis to weather the European sovereign debt crisis, the U.S.-China trade war and Malaysia's first change of government since independence.Unrest resulting in the abrupt resignation of Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad coupled with concern over the coronavirus outbreak have finally pushed the index into bear territory. The prospect of Malaysia's growth continuing to slow from a decade-low has also pressured the stock gauge this year, after a 6% fall in 2019, which was the worst performance by a major Asian stock market.Mahathir's party exited the ruling coalition, throwing the Southeast Asian nation into renewed distress after infighting over his successor came to a head. Mahathir's supporters had been reportedly maneuvering to form a new government that would exclude Anwar Ibrahim, the man that had been positioned to take his place."Given the many possible political configurations at this junction, investors should be watching events cautiously for now," said Chang Wei Liang, a macro strategist at DBS Group Holdings Ltd. in Singapore. "It is too early to jump to any conclusions, and we would have
