Global financial markets encounter "Black Monday"

Stimulated by the "crash" decline in crude oil prices, global stock markets "fall".

Hedging asset prices have been rising all the way. The price of gold continued to rise, and the main contract for COMEX gold prices rose above the $ 1,700 mark. UBS expects the price of gold to rise to the range of 1,700 to 1,800 US dollars in the short term, and raises the gold price forecasts for June, September, and December to 1,700, 1,700, and 1,650 US dollars from 1,650, 1,600, and 1,600 US dollars, respectively.

Faced with the huge fluctuations in financial markets, Zhao Yaoting, global market strategist at Invesco Asia Pacific (excluding Japan), said in an email to Shanghai Securities News that central banks around the world, led by the US Federal Reserve, have been implementing active loose monetary policies. There will be no turmoil in 2009.

On the stock market, Zhao Yaoting said that he continued to be optimistic about the stocks in China and emerging Asian markets. At present, China has gradually controlled the epidemic of the new crown pneumonia. Although the stock prices of the Chinese onshore market have rebounded recently, the valuation is still very attractive.

Under the UBS benchmark scenario, the institution expects mature and emerging market earnings to grow at low single digits and 10%, respectively. UBS continues to maintain its preference for emerging markets.

Short-term or volatile financial markets

Crude oil price war is imminent, what is the future trend of oil price?

Li Qiang, director of the New Lake Futures Research Institute, told the Shanghai Stock Exchange that the short-term trend of oil prices is still not optimistic, and whether a rebound inflection point will need to wait and see the situation of the new crown pneumonia epidemic situation. In addition, the OPEC + negotiations and other systemic risk events are Influence factors, investors need to pay close attention.

According to foreign media reports, according to the expectations of the international investment bank Goldman Sachs, with the outbreak of the oil price war between oil-producing nations, oil prices may fall another 43%.

After assessing the current supply and demand situation in the crude oil market, international agencies began to lower their oil price expectations. UBS cut the target prices of Brent crude oil futures in June, September and December from the original US $ 62, US $ 64, and US $ 64 to US $ 40, US $ 45, and US $ 50, respectively.

UBS also said that in the next few days to weeks, it does not rule out that Brent oil prices will fall further to $ 30 per barrel.
