(Bloomberg) — Stocks showed signs of stabilization, and even pockets of a rebound, in Asian trading Tuesday after the deepest equity rout since the global financial crisis.

Futures on the S&P 500 Index gained more than 2{c34e2c9cd63a11c97fab811dbaaefe0cfbb1edd2527888e1a44d36f3491ee811} after the gauge’s near 8{c34e2c9cd63a11c97fab811dbaaefe0cfbb1edd2527888e1a44d36f3491ee811} plunge Monday, and benchmarks rose in Sydney, Hong Kong and Shanghai. Japan was little changed after sliding another 4{c34e2c9cd63a11c97fab811dbaaefe0cfbb1edd2527888e1a44d36f3491ee811} at one point. Crude oil rose over 6{c34e2c9cd63a11c97fab811dbaaefe0cfbb1edd2527888e1a44d36f3491ee811}, taking back a slice of Monday’s crash. The yen slid and 10-year Treasury yields recouped roughly half of yesterday’s tumble

S&P 500 futures Tuesday briefly traded down 20{c34e2c9cd63a11c97fab811dbaaefe0cfbb1edd2527888e1a44d36f3491ee811} from their high — signaling a bear market — then gained after President Donald Trump said that the administration will discuss a possible payroll tax cut with Congress, and that there will be “major” economic announcements Tuesday. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin rejected comparisons with the financial crisis.

Measures to contain the coronavirus continue to undermine prospects for corporate earnings, and raise the danger of a funding crisis. Making things worse, the crash in oil prices threatens a swathe of defaults in that industry. On the coronavirus front, Italy added nationwide travel restrictions to its effective lockdown of the northern region of the country.

“While things feel like the end-of-days I’d stay risk averse in the near-term, but expect bear market rallies,” Chris Weston, head of research at Pepperstone Group, said.

Here are some key events coming up:

The European Central Bank’s policy decision comes Thursday amid expectations it may ease policy.The U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer unveils the government’s 2020 budget on Wednesday.The U.S. core consumer price index, due Wednesday, is expected to remain subdued in February.
