What’s driving the market?

Stocks rallied during regular trading Tuesday after President Donald Trump called for payroll-tax relief and other measures to help businesses deal with the economic slowdown resulting from the coronavirus epidemic. But lawmakers in both parties expressed skepticism about a payroll-tax cut to bolster the economy.

Markets are also pricing in an easing of monetary policy from the European Central Bank at its Thursday meeting and similar measures from the U.S. Federal Reserve at next week’s policy meeting.

What are analysts saying?

Joe Kalish, chief global macro strategist at Ned Davis Research, said Trump’s payroll-tax plan was not enough.

“We need to see meaningful support for economic activity and credit backstops, especially for small businesses, not a targeted approach executed only by the executive branch,” he said Tuesday in a note. “We will likely need congressional involvement. This is a potential solvency problem.”
