Dow (INDU) Futures dropped more than 450 points, or 1.9%, in front of the opening bell after falling as much as 800 points overnight. S&P 500 (SPX) futures dropped 1.7%, and Nasdaq (COMP) Futures fell 1.3%.
Markets throughout Asia also recorded a sharp decline after Beijing recorded a new group of viruses comes from the largest wholesale food market in the city. The Chinese capital has recorded 79 new cases since a local infectious infection was reported last Friday for the first time in almost two months.

China also reports on economic data, showing that recovery in the world’s second-largest economy is slow.

Japan Nikkei (N225) ended down 3.5%. South Korea Kospi (KOSPI) lost 4.8%, closing the worst day since March. Hong Kong Hang Seng Index (HSI) down 2.1%, and China Shanghai Composite (SHCOMP) decreased by 1%.
European markets are broadly declining openly. That FTSE 100 (UKX) down 2.4% in London. German DAX (DAX) down 2.5%, while France CAC 40 (CAC40) decreased by 2.6%.
For weeks, Wall Street seemed increasingly cut off from the world – the rise in large stocks did not match the relatively high unemployment figures and other data showing the economy was struggling. But markets have begun to catch up with reality, and despite a small recovery on Friday, the US index is on the move to a heavy decline to start this week.
When much of the United States began to reopen after locking up the coronavirus, scientists and health experts warned about the potential for a second wave of viruses, which could have an adverse effect on the economy. Several US states which reopened last week now report an increase in the number of infections and hospitalizations.
The second wave could undermine extreme optimism about the economy which has catapulted US stocks to record highs.

In China, meanwhile, signs of another wave of the virus could worsen an already slow economic recovery.

Industrial production, investment activity and retail sales increased somewhat from previous months, according to data released by the National Bureau of Statistics of China on Monday. However, all three readings fell below the estimates of analysts surveyed by Refinitiv.

“In the end, consumers’ willingness to leave their apartment in the midst of continuous social distance – whether mandated by the government or by consumer behavior – [that] will determine the speed of recovery, “writes Stephen Innes, head of global market strategy at AxiCorp, in a research note.” But the recovery led by Chinese consumers did not move forward quickly by imagination. “

Even so, some economists point to positive signs. Activity in the country’s service sector expanded for the first time this year, according to the China National Service Industry Manufacturing Index. This index measures changes in service sector output every month.

“Overall economic output returned above the 2019 level in May for the first time since the Covid-19 outbreak,” Martin Rasmussen, China’s economist for Capital Economics, wrote in a research report. “We previously thought that the Chinese economy would not return to positive year-on-year growth until [the third quarter]. But today’s data shows that this milestone can reach this quarter. “

Oil also moves lower. US oil futures fell 4.1%, trading at $ 34.76 a barrel. Brent, the global oil benchmark, lost 3.4% to reach $ 37.49 a barrel. Brent and US oil prices both fell more than 8% last week amid fears of a pandemic revival.
