Markets not live, Friday 14th February 2020

Summary:
Roses are red, violets have a scent -  Popping the question is Exane BNP Paribas, which follows the market’s choice not to panic about a headline jump in China’s coronavirus cases due to a change in diagnostics methodology. As of pixel we’re up to 65,000 people diagnosed with Covid-19 worldwide. With both the S&P 500 and STOXX 600 hovering near all-time highs, it is easy to think that investors are disregarding the economic impact of the Coronavirus outbreak. Undoubtedly, there were reasons to be optimistic. Firstly, till yesterday’s release, the incremental increase in confirmed cases was heading lower. And secondly, transmission rates internationally are still relatively low, and declining. ... The optimistic take we have heard is that the Chinese authorities finally feel comfortable
