If Friday’s episode of PreMarket Prep is any indication, opinions are extremely divided on how the coronavirus could affect U.S. markets.
Co-host Dennis Dick bemoaned the steady upward move in U.S. stocks, and said he’s still approaching this market with caution until the coronavirus gets under control.
Co-host Joel Elconin is not as bearish, and is sticking to watching key technical levels. He said his main level to watch will be Thursday’s all-time closing high in the S&P futures of 3345.25. He’ll be watching to see if the market can get back there during Friday’s session.
Each guest on Friday’s show offered slightly different takes. HitTheBid’s Kenny Glick said he’s not worried at all about the coronavirus impacting markets, while Wisdom Tree Director of Research Jeremy Schwartz acknowledged the threat, but said he expects it to be more of a short-term headwind.

Kenny Glick started his professional life as a stand-up comic, but was lured into a 'Boiler Room' operation by an admiring fan that thought his personable nature would be a good fit for "selling slime." His career began a few years before the dot-com bubble, but he actually had more success during the crash. More than anything, though, he strives to bring comic relief to trading.
