Market Insights – August 10, 2020

Domestic indexes held up impressively well during the market correction earlier this year, although investors have largely steered clear of Swiss stocks since mid-March.  Investors’ renewed appetite for risk and hopes of an uptick in economic activity in developed regions have made other, less defensive markets more appealing…

As we start the week, gold prices have reached a record high and are nearing the symbolic threshold of USD 2,000 per ounce (around 31 grams). They have gained close to 7% in a week and 30% since the start of the year. Rises like these are rare outside of a financial crisis. The last period in which gold prices rose so sharply was during the 2008 subprime crisis and the eurozone sovereign debt crisis starting in 2010, when fears about the financial system were at their peak. Since then, systemic risks have dropped off sharply, so they don’t explain gold’s recent rally…

The automobile sector has been struggling since the start of the COVID-19 crisis, and carmakers have come up with some inventive ways of getting things moving again. They have, for example, let buyers get their new car now without having to pay anything until 2022. Governments seem to be taking a similar approach to debt at the moment…

The main risk weighing on the global economy and the financial markets is the prospect of a second COVID-19 wave in developed countries. In addition to the hygiene and social-distancing rules that authorities almost everywhere are trying to keep in place, countries’ ability to conduct large-scale testing and contain clusters will be the determining factors until a vaccine is available…

The May jobs report in the USA came as a big surprise. April had been a harsh month – more than 20 million Americans filed jobless claims as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Most observers had expected the labour market to continue to worsen in May, with millions more jobs forecast to be wiped out and unemployment set to rise to nearly 20% of the working population. But fortunately this very gloomy outlook did not materialise…

There’s a well-known saying within the financial community: sell in May and go away. Historically speaking, stock markets tend to perform less well in the six months from May to October than they do in the six months from November to April. Of course, this is an average, long-term trend and it doesn’t happen like that every year. And it wouldn’t have been wise to follow this rule in recent years…

Market Insights – May 25, 2020

The Q1 earnings season is coming to an end. When you look at how stock markets have risen in recent weeks, it’s hard to believe that US corporates recorded a more than 13% drop in earnings, the sharpest decline since the 2008 financial crisis…
