Starting this thread as a place where we can note effect on Markets and Sectors most impacted.
I hadn't considered this but it's just been pointed out to me that there are many many Chinese being educated abroad (lots in UcK) and a large percentage would like to be travelling around about now.
Restrictions now impacting 50m people.
These people will need to shop for food.
Visit the doctor or hospital.
Difficult to see how economic trade can not be impacted.
How long can schools, public and private services continue without people movement? Very difficult to gauge!
"Might get some indication tonight when the markets open. "
True... But do remember that the Asian Markets are closed for a week for Chinese New Year.
So, we'll only see the impact as other World Markets open and react to events.
