European stocks open lower as global coronavirus cases top one million
European stocks slipped and U.S. equity futures pointed to a weaker session on Friday, as investors braced for more bad news on the American job front and coronavirus cases worldwide topped one million. The Stoxx Europe 600 index dropped 0.4%, alongside a similar loss for the German DAX 30 index , while the FTSE 100 index fell 0.7%. After a positive session for Wall Street on Thursday, Dow Jones Industrial Averages futures fell 181 points, or 0.9%, to 21,077. S&P 500 and Nasdaq-100 futures eased around 0.8%. Oil prices pared back some of Thursday's gains that saw West Texas Intermediate crude jump nearly 25% and Brent crude climb 21%. Those contracts were off 1.7% and 0.3% respectively. Oil's rally was sparked by a tweet from President Donald Trump who predicted Saudi Arabia and Russia would agree to significantly cut oil production. Investors are waiting for March nonfarm payrolls data from the U.S., after data Thursday showed a record 6.6 million Americans filed for unemployment claims due to shutdowns from the coronavirus outbreak.

(Bloomberg) -- U.S. stock index futures fell, erasing part of Thursday's rally, as global coronavirus infections continued to increase.S&P 500 Index futures expiring in June slid 0.9% as of 9:30 a.m. in London, after gaining 2.8% on Thursday. Contracts dropped 0.9% on the Nasdaq 100 Index and fell 1.1% on the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Global coronavirus infections surpassed 1 million, a milestone reached just four months after the first cases surfaced in China.In Europe, the Stoxx 600 Index was down 0.5%, weighed down by insurers and telecom shares. The euro-area economy is in a slump of unprecedented scale, with IHS Markit saying Friday its monthly measure of services and manufacturing points to an annualized economic contraction of about 10%."Sentiment in the market is still very fearful," said Dan Russo, chief market strategist at Chaikin Analytics. "The longer it takes to flatten the curve, the more prolonged the negative economic impact is likely to be, the longer it takes for businesses to get up and running again. Our base case remains that we are likely to retest the lows from last Monday."The underlying S&P 500 advanced 2.3% on Thursday, climbing for the first time in three days, with Chevron Corp and Exxon Mobil Corp. among the top gainers, after President Donald Trump said Russia and Saudi Arabia would cut production.

Eurozone services PMI skids to worst-ever 26.4 in March
The IHS Markit eurozone services purchasing managers index in March slumped to a reading of 26.4 from 52.6 in February, the worst-ever reading in the history of the series. Any level below 50 indicates contracting conditions, and the final reading was worse than the flash reading of 28.4. In Italy, the services PMI fell to 17.4 in March, plunging from 52.1 in February. "The data indicate that the eurozone economy is already contracting at an annualised rate approaching 10%, with worse inevitably to come in the near future," said Chris Williamson, chief business economist at IHS Markit.

Etsy touts sales, liquidity amid coronavirus wreckage
Etsy Inc. said Thursday that its first-quarter consolidated gross merchandise sales hit $1.4 billion, up 32% year-on-year. That is in line with expectations of analysts polled by FactSet. In what the online marketplace dubbed a "fireside chat" with management, Etsy said it has "high-quality capital" on its balance sheet and is in a "very strong financial position" to weather the slowdown brought by the coronavirus pandemic. As of Dec. 31, the company had more than $800 million in cash and short-term investments. None of its debt is due before 2023 and the company has a credit line of about $200 million currently untapped, it said. Shares of Etsy see-sawed between gains and losses in the extended session after ending the regular session down 1.8%.
