ZFX: Bullish and bearish factors are testing investors’ nerve   

Thursday (April 23) Review

  

  • the June contract for WTI crude futures jumped another 20%, as the market believes that major oil-producers may implement production cut as soon as possible, and the tension between the United States and Iran has also triggered buying interest. Global stock markets continue to rally due to the rebound in oil prices. However, investment bank Goldman Sachs warned that the key crude oil storage in Oklahoma is “nearing full capacity”, which may cause the WTI fall to negative territory once again.

 

  • The initial jobless claims in the US last week fell for three consecutive weeks to 4.427 million, while the continuing claims jumped to the record high 15.976 million. As both figures were slightly better than expected, investors believe that the most severe situation may be over for the US labor market. In addition, the US Congress has passed the new economic stimulus plan, which further boosted risk appetite, that supporting the global stock market. However, a report from the WHO showed the failure of the clinical trial of “Remdesivir”. Sentiment turned to risk-off, so that all three Wall Street indexes retraced all the gain on Thursday, and closed mixed.

 

  • The gold price rose due to the “decisive response” from Iran. Tension between the US and Iran is growing, which has stimulated safe-haven asset. In addition, it is reported that the Bank of Japan will launch an “unlimited QE” next week, supporting the uptrend of gold.

 

  • The EU agreed to set up a massive recovery fund to tackle the impact of the coronavirus outbreak. But, the EU failed to reach any agreement so far. The uncertainty of the recovery fund was causing the euro under pressure.

 

  • The global pandemic of new coronavirus remains severe, with more than 2.7 million confirmed cases worldwide and more than 190000 deaths.

Factors such as oil price trends, pandemic progress, economic figures, international situation/tension, and the global economic policies continue to generate variables in the financial market. Investors should keep cautious and be aware of the risk management.
