What do the indices tell us? – COVID-19 impact on the economy [Kochański & Partners report]

18 June 2020 | Knowledge, News

Kochański & Partners experts have analyzed the most important stock indices – both on the WSE main market and abroad.

Our “What do the indices tell us?” report indicates an overwhelming impact of coronavirus on the economy:

  • Global stock market indices follow a similar trend – following mid-February declines of a month, recoveries are seen at different paces.
  • The main sectors of the Polish economy have suffered from the pandemic to a varying degree. The market has been gradually stabilizing since mid-March 2020, reflected by the stock indices, business approach and activity. Returning to the “new normality” is what we need to do.
  • Larger Polish WIG20 companies react to the pandemic much worse than smaller sWIG80 companies.


We encourage you to read the report.
