The TSX jumped ahead 3.9 percent to open the final trading session of the week on Friday following the largest single-day percentage drop since 1940. The economic fallout of the coronavirus continued to dominate headlines this week, as governments took proactive measures to prevent further spread of the disease. The closures, including the postponement of major sporting events and gatherings around the world, drove the S&P500 index to drop seven percent on Thursday, triggering a Level 1 Market Wide Circuit Breaker trading halt for 15 minutes.

A recession, which was previously unlikely is now a high probability,” Darren Sissons, vice-president and partner at Campbell, Lee & Ross, told Yahoo Finance Canada.
