Wall street cancels a rebound higher than 2% and is trading with moderate increases after collapse this Thursday in its most bearish session since last March, in the middle of the coronavirus crisis. The fear of a regrowth of the pandemic, the caution of the Federal Reserve on the economy and, above all, the high ratings reached by the New York Stock Exchange, are the main factors to explain the violent correction.
To highlight, the S&P 500 is testing the support of the 3,000 pointswhere does the average 200 sessions.

According to his forecasts, the S&P 500 can correct up to 2,800 points after a rebound of over 40% from the lows in March.
And is that the big question that experts are now asking is if we are facing a strong point correction or if it is the beginning of the end of the rebound. Despite the possible outbreak of the virus in the world's largest economy, the US Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin, has affirmed that the country will not confine itself again.
