Special Issue Information
The spread of COVID-19—transforming from a regional crisis in China to a global pandemic within three months—has caused severe damage to human lives and the global economy. Stock markets around the world have plummeted to their lowest levels since the 2008 global financial crisis. Furthermore, the impact of COVID-19 on stock markets is more severe than any previous infectious disease outbreak, including the 1918 Spanish Flu.
This Special Issue invites submissions related to the impact of COVID-19 on financial markets. The primary aim of this issue is to help researchers and policymakers to understand the performance of financial markets and assets under extreme stress.
The Special Issue will focus on the impact of COVID-19 on stock markets, derivative markets, commodities markets, real estate markets, debt markets, and foreign exchange market. We invite submissions that relate to (but not limited to) the following topics:
- The impact on safe haven assets;
- The impact on financial markets;
- Bond markets—treasury, municipals, corporate;
- Risk management;
- Investor sentiment;
- Stock market anomalies;
- Changes to capital structure;
- Changes to payout policy;
- The impact on commodities;
- The impact on green energy stocks;
