YCharts, an investment research, analytics, and client communications platform, today announced the addition of several new coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis data series that will enable investors to more closely monitor its global impact.
Now available on the platform is the total number of cases and deaths throughout the world, as well as in 148 countries. In the near term, YCharts will be adding the total number of cases and deaths for each of the 50 states in the United States of America and 13 Canadian provinces/territories, and the total number of new cases per day and death rate for each country. Sourced from the Johns Hopkins University and Medicine Coronavirus Resource Center, the total number of cases and deaths, as well as the top 10 countries, will be updated intraday, while all other data points will be updated daily. This timely addition to YCharts will enable users to:
- Analyze the coronavirus’s impact on the markets by plotting one or several countries’ cases data on a single chart along with any security, economic indicator or portfolio on the platform
- Build a watchlist of coronavirus statistics to track accurate numbers alongside market data
- Evaluate portfolio performance relative to coronavirus cases, enabling investment professionals to better communicate with clients about the potential impact on portfolios
