“The fourth COVID-19 wave is like a sequel to a movie that no one ever wanted to watch in the first place….

“One reason U.S. investors are nervous is the price of oil, which dropped nearly 8 percent on Monday. Rising oil prices had been seen as a sign of a strong global rebound. The sharp decline…suggests that the global demand for oil, and therefore economic activity, could be lower than thought.”
