Economic calendar: Trump targets social media companies

07:35 28 May 2020
  • Trump to sign executive order against social media companies

  • China expected to pass Hong Kong security law

  • Hard data from the United States, including Q1 GDP report

Global stock markets erased gains during yesterday's US cash session. However, losses were recouped by the time Wall Street closed and indices continued to move higher overnight. DAX futures trade near the 11,800 pts mark while S&P 500 tested 3,050 pts.

Some interesting readings, including US GDP, are scheduled for release today but markets are likely to be focused on other issues. Trump is expected to sign an executive order against social media companies while China is set to pass Hong Kong security law today. The United States is widely expected to retaliate against such move from China therefore both events have a high chance to move markets.
