ZFX: Trade war fears! Sharp reversal across financial markets

04-05-2020 04:44

Weekly Market Review (4/27 - 5/1)

 

  • Last week the June contract of WTI crude futures plunged again, reached nearly $10 mark. However, the market believes that the countries are planning to reopen their economies, supporting the rebound of oil prices. Also, the weekly reports showed a “less than expected” build in US oil inventories, and the data showed that the production cuts of oil-producers have begun, further boosting the oil prices, once above $20 mark.
  • The Q1 GDP of the United States dropped by 4.8%, worse than market expectations; the ISM Manufacturing PMI for the US dropped to 41.5 in April, but it was still better than market expectations.
  • The Fed kept the rates unchanged as expected but it promised to use full range of tools to support the US economy to tackle considerable risk from the coronavirus pandemic. The ECB also kept the rates unchanged and the Pandemic Emergency Purchase Program remained unchanged at 750 billion euros, but it lowered the rate of targeted longer term refinancing operations (TLTRO).
  • The international tension is now a key concern due to Trump’s speech. The global pandemic is likely to trigger more political and economic disputes among the countries, especially another trade war between China and the US after the tariff threats from Trump. The offshore RMB and the other commodity currencies reversed the trend last week as the rising tension turned the “risk off”, triggering investors to re-balance their portfolios.
  • The situation of the coronavirus pandemic is showing bad signs again. The number of confirmed cases worldwide has exceeded 3.5 million, nearly 250000 deaths. Russia is now facing a severe outbreak, with over 10000 new cases in a single day.

ZFX analyst Jacob Leung said that, as mentioned last week, the market has shown signs of weakening, and the disputes between China and the US have further intensified the move. Trade war issues were usually very bearish, which will cause shocks in the market. Investors will be very cautious in the coming weeks.
