ZFX: Investors turned cautious after bearish figures

29-04-2020 04:23

Tuesday (April 28) Review

 

  • The June contract of WTI crude futures plunged by more than 20% in early European session on Tuesday, nearly reached $10 mark. The whole market is still concerned about the capacity of the global crude oil storage and the world’s largest crude oil ETF selling all the June oil contracts, triggering greater selling pressure. However, it is reported that there was a “bomb attacks” in Syria. Oil prices recovered most of the loss while the Brent oil finally rose by more than 2% due to the rising tension in the Middle East.
  • The Consumer Confidence Index dropped sharply to 86.9 in April, reflecting the severe impact on the U.S. economy under the global pandemic, which hit the market sentiment on Tuesday. On the other hand, this week investors are looking forward to the result of the FOMC meeting. The market turned cautious, making the three major Wall Street indexes rose at the opening, but finally failed to maintain the recent strength.
  • The greenback is obviously weak, falling against the other major currencies. Dollar Index fell below the 100 mark. The VIX continued to go lower, once approaching the 30 level, signs of lower demand of the risky assets. In addition, before the FOMC meeting, investors expect the Fed may announce more stimulus measures, increasing the uncertainty of the dollar's outlook.
  • The global pandemic is slowing down more obviously, with the number of confirmed cases worldwide remained at 3 million level, more than 210000 deaths. The outbreak in Europe continued to ease, and countries such as France, Spain, and Greece are gradually trying to ease the lockdown measures.
