The S&P 500 resumed its trajectory to record levels during Wednesday’s trading session as investors sloughed off the effects of the coronavirus. While the markets have taken a reprieve from coronavirus outbreak news, it doesn’t necessarily mean the threat is obliterated.

“We think the number of new reported cases will be a critical signpost,” said Niall MacLeod, a strategist at UBS, in a note.

Additionally, the markets got boosted after private payrolls rose by 291,000 during the month of January, which constituted its best month since May 2015, based on data from ADP and Moody’s Analytics.

“Since today’s data came in well above market expectations, this release is likely to inspire other forecasters to revise their forecasts,” said Ward McCarthy, chief financial economist at Jefferies.
