ZFX: Risk appetite restored? Good news seen by some investors
Review: On Monday (March 30), the financial market sentiment was lifted after some “good” news came out in the US session time. Investor confidence was stabilized, stimulating the three Wall Street indexes to rise, more than 3%. Trump said that the national social distancing guidelines will be extended to April 30, which lowered the market concerns about the epidemic causing long term damage to the economy.
In addition, Trump said he had a phone call with Russian President Putin to discuss the oil prices situation. The market believed that the US will be more actively to involve in the oil market, mediating the oil price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia. It was reported that the US and Russia agreed to continue to communicate. The news stabilized the recent downward trend of oil prices, which is also good for investment sentiment.
Also, during the US session, it is reported that companies have made progress in developing new coronavirus vaccines, further boosting the market.
The number of newly confirmed cases of new coronavirus continues to increase by “tens of thousands” worldwide, with the latest confirmed cases exceeding 780000 and more than 37000 deaths. The U.S. epidemic remains the worst, with 160000 confirmed cases and nearly 3000 deaths. Trump said the peak of the outbreak has not yet reached.
ZFX analyst Jacob Leung said that there was no sign of improvement in the epidemic and it is expected that the financial market sentiment will remain unstable. Risk aversion may be heightened due to the expectation of poor performance of economic data released this week, including consumer confidence index, ADP, ISM and Nonfarm payroll.
About the market trends, the dollar index bounced back to 99 level. Gold price continued to be ranging above $1600. The weak situation of oil market remained unchanged, hitting another 18-year low, and US WTI crude oil futures once fell to $19.27 per barrel. ZFX analyst Jacob Leung said that the rebound of the dollar may be caused by a certain degree of technical correction, but also reflected that the market is still preparing for the potential risk.
