      A recent report released by the International Labor Organization (ILO) shows that due to the new coronavirus epidemic (COVID-2019), global unemployed population will increase by up to 25 million. Business activities has been severely stalled around the world with more factories shutdown and stores closed, which threatens to cause more unemployment than the financial crisis during 2008-2009. There is no doubt that the continued spread of the coronavirus epidemic has become one of the biggest threats to global economy and financial market.

      As a forex investor, how should you respond to the impact of the epidemic? If you want to avoid risks and seize opportunities during this outbreak, you must pay attention to the implications of macro events on the market besides closely following forex dynamics.

      Now let's look at how the panic over COVID19 outbreak's economic impact is fueling into the global crisis.

      China has been waging an all-out war against the virus ever since the outbreak started, and achieved impressive results. But just as China begin to see hope of suppressing the outbreak effectively, the virus began to spread rapidly in the rest of the world. Japan, South Korea, and Singapore were soon affected as the virus continued to rage across East Asia to Southeast Asia and South Asia. The epidemic hit Iran in the Middle East and Italy in Europe, which are now among the worst affected areas, while the situation in the United States is also grim. Currently, over 100 countries and regions have been affected by the COVID-19 epidemic, with more than 100,000 confirmed cases.

      After the initial shock, the world soon fell into an economic panic. Global market, facing one heavy blow after another from the fast-evolving epidemic, is in woeful turbulent and chaos. New York stock market plummeted, while the three major European stock indices jittered down-slope; the Tokyo stock market went on a “roller coaster ride”, and stock indices of Middle East countries plunged across the board. Circuit breakers were activated in stock markets around the world, huge capital has evaporated, while panic sell-off continuously led to market clash. In fact, the global economy growth has been sluggish even before the outbreak. The Sino-US trade war and Brexit rendered a less optimistic outlook for economic growth, and the double blow from fast-spreading epidemic and the consequent market pessimism further exacerbated the economic panic. In less than two months, global financial markets turned bleak all over, with numerous economies around the world being hit.
