International stock markets closed positive again yesterday, although Wall Street ended the day just shy of the day's highs and the S&P 500 index failed to close above the psychological threshold of 3,000 points.This was mostly due to the correction seen in technology stocks and online stocks in general, which have supported the market's recovery thus far.Conversely, the sectors that have suffered most in the pandemic, such as airlines, holiday and cruise companies, are making a comeback – although they do have a lower weight on the large indices.

Focus on Italy: macroeconomic and fixed income scenario

The global background and Italy: if we wanted to characterise the contraction and recovery pattern, we would probably describe it as a ‘long U-shaped’ recovery; in other words, as a gradual normalisation which will take some time before seeing a return to pre-crisis levels. In Italy, the government is estimating an 8% GDP contraction this year, followed by a 4.7% YoY rebound in 2021. In our analysis, we consider two possible reference scenarios for 2020 growth: -8.0% YoY (as per the government scenario) and - 12.0% YoY.
