Time now for an in-depth look at the market news.
And for that, I'm joined on the line by Mr. Daniel Yoo, global strategist at Yuanta Securities.
Mr. Yoo, thank you for coming on today.
There are signs here and there in the U.S. that the spread of COVID-19 might be slowing down, and that sent stocks soaring yesterday on Wall Street. Up more than 7 percent across the board. What's the story in the global market today?
Samsung Electronics has beaten market expectations with its earnings for the first quarter. In fact, despite the coronavirus situation, profits were better than they were in the first quarter last year. What do you make of Samsung's strategy to get through all this, and what was the reaction on the stock market?
Korea posted a current account surplus in February, the tenth month in a row that it's in the black. The surplus actually grew. But that certainly doesn't mean everything's okay, right?
Alright, Mr. Yoo.
We'll have to leave it there for today.
Thanks for coming on and sharing your insights.
