Crude Crash and Coronavirus Economic Fallout


Welcome to this week’s Market Blast Fundamentals where we will look at Gold (XAUUSD), US Oil (WTI), USDCAD, USDMXN, the DAX (DE30), and the FTSE 100 (UK100).

The Coronavirus fallout has caused a major crash in global stock markets and we need to look at the monthly charts to find the bottoms.

European equities seem to be hit hardest with the DAX at levels from seven years ago, the STOXX50 from 8 years ago, and the FTSE 100 from nine years ago.

The Japanese and Australian indices have retuned to 2016 levels and the US indices are at 2018 and 2017 levels.

As usual, we ask you to watch the economic calendar and this week is extra important as, for example, the US Interest Rate decision due on Wednesday occurred last night and many central banks have already lowered rates in emergency meetings.

Other Interest Rate decisions may be accelerated so please watch the news.

Both WTI and Brent Crude have crashed along with the Australian Dollar, Canadian Dollar and Mexican Peso.

We need to see better news on the OPEC price war before any recovery of Oil or the Comdolls.

Of course, we all need to see better news on the Coronavirus before we see any global economic recovery.

Gold has fallen as funds and central banks have sold their reserves looking for cash to combat the negative economic effects of Coronavirus.

That’s all for now. Happy trading with Valutrades and we will see you tomorrow.
