However, one of the executives from JPMorgan said that stock markets can flourish by the start of 2021 once the US government can overcome the spread of the virus.
The last 24 hours show steady gains in the crypto market. The leading cryptocurrency, Bitcoin was up by ten percent compared to the last one day and trading around six thousand five hundred US dollars ($6569).
