Monthly Review: June 2021

Welcome to our look back at the previous month and a look ahead to what we might expect to see throughout July and beyond.

We started the month with COVID optimism, in almost every asset class, but we are finishing the month with a tinge of pessimism.  The new variant — COVID-19 Delta Plus — may have changed the rules in our fight against the pandemic.

COVID vaccine programs are still progressing but we finished the month with cities like Sydney, Australia going back into lockdown as we all discover the poor vaccination rate in that country. 

The US Executive Branch and Congress will be debating and negotiating a massive infrastructure plan into the next few weeks and months, which will affect the USD as we move forward.

 The issue of trade relations with China came back into play with many economies starting to work together to confront China about everything from Coronavirus to human rights to IP protection.  Some countries have tried to take on China independently such as the Trump administration, some time ago, and the Australian government earlier this year.

May Recap: USD Weakness, Gold, CAD & Crude Oil Strength

Welcome to our look back at the previous month and a look ahead to what we might expect to see throughout June and beyond.

The main market drivers in May were pretty much the same as April, including the continuing COVID vaccine programs, which are working better in some economies than others.  This has seen notable gains in instruments like WTI, Brent Crude, Stock Indices and EUR.

The US Executive Branch and Congress will be debating and negotiating a massive infrastructure plan into the next few weeks and months, which will affect the USD as we move forward.  We still see overall USD weakness 

Another major concern, which reared its head in April and will continue for months to come, is the dreadful situation with COVID infections in India.  This is not only a humanitarian tragedy, it may turn out to be an economic tragedy.

Monthly Review: April 2021

Welcome to our look back at the previous month and a look ahead to what we might expect to see throughout May and beyond.

The main market drivers in April were pretty much the same as March, with a shift toward COVID vaccine programs, which are working better in some economies than others.  This has seen notable gains in instruments like WTI, Brent Crude, Stock Indices and EUR.

USD Weakness and Bad COVID News from India

Europe looks like it is finally catching up on its vaccine deficiencies, and there is talk of boosting travel and tourism with vaccinated visitors, however, some economies are still in lockdown.

 The US Executive Branch and Congress will be debating and negotiating a massive infrastructure plan into the next few weeks and months, which will affect the USD as we move forward.

Another major concern, which reared its head in April and will continue for months to come, is the dreadful situation with COVID infections in India.  This is not only a humanitarian tragedy, it may turn out to be an economic tragedy.

Market Recap: February 2021

Welcome to our look back at the previous month and a look ahead to what we might expect to see throughout March and beyond.

Last month we stated that the main drivers of the economy were COVID-19 Lockdowns, COVID-19 Stimulus Packages, COVID-19 Vaccines, the new US Government, US/China Trade Relations, and Brexit.

The main market drivers were pretty much the same as January’s, with a shift toward COVID vaccine programs, which are working better in some economies than others.  This has seen notable gains in instruments like WTI, Brent Crude and GBP.

Also, traders and analysts have noticed a certain “predictability” to the markets, probably based on the new US government, which took over 21 January, and the removal of several psychological disorders, and at least one Twitter account, that had plagued the global economy for the last 4 years.

Last month we wrote about global trade issues with China which will be an ongoing issue.  We hear rumblings from all major economies on this topic, including the demanding of accountability for the global pandemic and human rights abuses.  To be honest, these issues with China will probably not be resolved until the planet gets the pandemic under control.  However, any news on this will have a major impact on Commodities, Currencies and Equities.

Market Wrap – November 2020

Now that the dust has settled on the U.S. Presidential election and all of the fanfare and media coverage that comes with that, financial markets have focussed again on the coronavirus pandemic and vaccine hopes.  COVID-19 continues to makes it way through the United States and Europe, with cases in the former having now exceeded 13 million.  Numerous companies have reported test results from their COVID-19 vaccine testing and this has raised hopes that a vaccine is not far away and that the world can put 2020 well and truly behind it.  This has also raised risk appetite and increased bullishness in financial markets sending equity indices to record highs.

Market Wrap – October 2020

Whilst the coronavirus pandemic has the major theme in the world and financial markets throughout 2020, scarily cases continue to grow, especially in major economic regions like the United States and Europe.  It has been another month and another increase in the number of coronavirus cases all around the world as this now passes 45 million with close to 1.2 million deaths, and this pandemic continues to dominate the economic landscape.  Earlier in the month, the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Kristalina Georgieva has said the economic recovery from the impact of the coronavirus impact will be a “difficult climb”, despite the impact not being as bad as the IMF originally thought.  She explained that “extraordinary policy measures” were to thank for the improved performance.   The IMF does not expect the global economy to return to its pre-COVID-19 levels “over the medium term.”   The U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) Vice Chair Richard Clarida has said that whilst the U.S. economy has recovered well it may still be a year away from returning to pre-pandemic levels and it may take longer for the jobs market to recover.  “While recovery since the spring collapse in economic activity has been robust, let us not forget that the full economic recovery from the COVID-19 recession has a long way to go,” Clarida said during a presentation to the American Bankers Association Convention.

Market Wrap – September 2020

Another month and another increase in the number of coronavirus cases all around the world as this now passes 33.5 million with over 1 million deaths, and this pandemic continues to dominate the economic landscape.  With the world now dealing with the coronavirus pandemic for more than six months, it has become obvious to most that it is not going away any time soon, and it continues to impact everyday life and more importantly the global economy.  In an approach matched by many central banks around the world, the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) at its most recent two day policy meeting, maintained its promise to keep interest rates near zero and keep them there until inflation rises consistently.  Fed officials changed their economic forecasts to reflect a smaller decline in GDP and a lower unemployment rate in 2020.  Some individual Fed members indicated interest rates could stay anchored near zero until 2023.

Market Wrap – August 2020

Another month and another increase in the number of coronavirus cases all around the world as this now passes 25 million with over 850,000 deaths.  The coronavirus pandemic is not going away any time soon, and it continues to impact everyday life and more importantly the global economy.  Economies of all sizes around the world are feeling the wrath of the COVID-19 pandemic as central banks have dug deep into their toolboxes to attempt to save their countries from total collapse economically.

Market Wrap – July 2020

Another month and another increase in the number of coronavirus cases all around the world as this now passes 17 million with over 675,000 deaths.  What is certain is that coronavirus pandemic is not going away any time soon, as it continues to wreak havoc across the world.  Economies of all sizes around the world are feeling the wrath of the COVID-19 pandemic as central banks have taken emergency action to cut rates (some repeatedly) and increase stimulus measures.  The United States Commerce Department recently announced that the U.S. gross domestic product contracted at a staggering seasonally adjusted annual rate of 32.9% in the April-June quarter, providing some tangible evidence of the significant impact the coronavirus has had.   In the recent two-day U.S. Federal Reserve meeting, the official statement said, “The path of the economy will depend significantly on the course of the virus.”  “It’s just such an important sentence, we decided it needed to be in our post-meeting statement,” Fed Chairman Jerome Powell added during his post-meeting news conference. “It’s so fundamental” which only underscores how significant this event really is on the global economy.

Market Wrap – June 2020

Another month and another increase in the number of coronavirus cases all around the world as different countries are starting to adopt different approaches to handling the pandemic.  What is certain is that coronavirus pandemic is not going away any time soon, as it continues to wreak havoc across the world.  Generally speaking, the volatility financial markets experienced throughout the early period of the pandemic has all but disappeared as the world is becoming more accepting of the new reality in 2020.  Economies of all sizes around the world are feeling the wrath of the COVID-19 pandemic as central banks have taken emergency action to cut rates (some repeatedly) and increase stimulus measures.  Many countries are now starting to ease restrictions and allowing much more normal freedom of movement for people.  However, as the Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell said while addressing the specific situation within the United States, “A full recovery is unlikely until people are confident that it is safe to reengage in a broad range of activities.”   This will likely be the experience in many countries which will severely impact economies all around the world for some time yet.
