BNP Paribas Securities says the global equity markets may continue to face volatility over the next six to eight weeks. How the markets perform is mostly dependent on the outcome of the upcoming US presidential elections, the possible escalation of geopolitical tensions, the worsening of Covid-19 infections, and fluctuating news flow on the potential Covid-19 vaccines, says analyst Manishi Raychaudhuri.

“Within Asia, different countries are marching to different tunes in terms of their domestic economic trajectories, their economic policy initiatives and their strategies in combating the pandemic,” adds Raychaudhuri in a strategy report dated September 20.

“Sector-wise earnings estimates – a key driver of share prices, in our opinion – are consequently shaping up differently in different Asian markets,” he adds.
