ZFX: Unprecedented sell-off! Oil prices dragged down global stock markets

22-04-2020 04:23

Tuesday (April 21) Review

 

  • The outlook of oil prices is still extremely gloomy. The June contract of WTI crude futures fell sharply, once dropped below the $10 mark. Although there was a rebound in the late US session, the WTI still closed 43% lower! The plunge has boosted risk aversion so that the three major Wall Street indexes all fell more than 2%.
  • The general analysis believes that the oil market is currently experiencing serious problem of imbalance, which is expected that lots of buyers are reluctant to or will not take physical delivery. Even by the settlement date of next month, a huge sell-off may still emerge, causing the WTI futures to fall into a negative territory again.
  • The sales of existing homes in the US fell 8.5% in March, to 5.27 million units, the biggest monthly drop since November 2015, but the drop was roughly in line with market expectations.
  • The new coronavirus outbreak is still severe, with more than 2.5 million confirmed cases worldwide and more than 170000 deaths. However, it is generally believed that the growth rate of both numbers will slow down.
  • The US Senate finally reached an agreement on a new economic stimulus plan with a scale of nearly $500 billion to help small businesses and medical institutions to cope with the current crisis. President Trump reiterated that he will plan to provide funds for the energy industry to protect the companies and ensure the jobs.

ZFX analyst Jacob Leung said that the imbalance issue of the oil market has been totally exposed. Unless the major oil-producers in the world put more efforts to deal with the “cut”, oil prices may still keep under pressure and fluctuate in the short term. There have been several “Black Swan” events this year already, meaning that investors should always be well prepared to deal with unexpected things, unusual moves and volatility.
