      Default Corona

      In the Corona era, when global financial markets and economies are experiencing continuous instability, the process of investing and keeping money or the way to exploit it has become a concern for many consumers who have financial surpluses, so the solution in investment and trading, but how to direct these funds, is a path of permanent controversy. Some resort to buying real estate or others prefer gold and a few seek to hoard currencies.

      Some holders of financial surpluses want to put it in trading in stocks or any other type of investment activities, but the most important feature of investing in stocks is that you own shares in a company that becomes part of it, and over time when the company's profits and growth increase in the long term, you will benefit as well From that, not only with the rise in the price of your shares, but in many forms such as dividends that the company provides to its shareholders, but in a time of stock price turmoil, if you do not observe the movement of the ups and downs of the shares, you will suffer great losses.

      In addition to investing in stocks, you can also invest in gold, which is one of the safe havens that can be invested in. It is also possible to invest in the dollar, as it is the strongest currency in the world, and it is also possible to invest in real estate.



      Investing in gold:

      Gold is one of the safe havens that can be invested in. One of the benefits of investing money in gold is that it works to keep money from inflation factors and high prices of other commodities, such as oil, the dollar, and others, which are located in other investment methods, and it is considered the most stable investment Even if there is a decline in periods of the year in its price, it will continue to increase in the long run. Therefore, investing in gold is the safe haven for capital and wealthy owners to preserve their wealth and value of their money, and protect them from inflation factors and other financial market fluctuations.

      In order to trade in gold, the investor must first purchase the gold and then hold it for a period of time and then sell it and earn profits, and to ensure the success of investing your money in gold you must buy gold and keep it for a period of two or three years at the least to ensure the success of your investment, and the best is to save alloys Gold. It is possible to rely on the method of speculation in gold, but with a portion of the money allocated for investment.

      You can invest in gold through gold deposit certificates, which are certificates issued by certain bodies such as banks, and in specific categories, and they are an alternative to actual gold. You can trade daily through these certificates buy or sell without the need to buy or store gold, and you can recover its gold earnings, as Buying and selling is done at a specific price.

      The ways and types of trading in gold vary between savings, investment and the stock market. There are many people who want to buy gold by offering to save and save money, and it is considered a very successful investment, but the investor must deal with gold in a correct way so as not to be subjected to losses.

      There are ways to buy gold, such as buying and saving gold jewelery, either in a safe place, or placing it in bank deposits and safes, or buying gold bars and saving them for saving in the previous methods. Also, gold deposit certificates can be purchased or paper gold is purchased from central banks, which is a more secure form of purchasing Jewelery, or raw gold or alloys. The investor can subscribe to mutual funds that trade in gold, or buy rare gold coins to hold and sell them at a higher price where they have a great demand.

      And every investor who wants to invest in gold must be well aware that the price of selling gold differs from the purchase price, and the reason is the costs of workmanship. Many people buy gold jewelery for the purpose of keeping them to increase their price, but they find that they lost their money despite the high price of gold, and the reason is due In that to the price of manufacturing, when you sell those jewelry you deduct the value of jewelry and crafts from the price, which may exceed 10% of the value of the price, so if you want to buy gold for the purpose of saving or investing, you must buy gold bars, not gold jewelery.

      One of the advantages of investing in gold is that it is a way to preserve the value of savings despite the rise and fall of gold prices from one moment to the next, because no matter how low or falling the price of gold will go up, it needs time.

      Default US dumps idea of high tariffs on imported oil

      US dumps idea of high tariffs on imported oil


      Name: img5e90adf05cb2d.jpg Views: 70 Size: 181.2 KB

      The US has taken advantage of the collision between Saudi Arabia and Russia. Having unleashed the oil price war against the most powerful rival, Saudi Arabia slashed its crude prices for regular buyers. The US immediately pumped up all available commercial and strategic inventories with cheap crude oil. Afterwards, Washington decided to exert its influence to stem turmoil in the global oil market. The US leader even made an attempt to mediate between Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin. Following a joint online conference between the parties, Donald Trump expressed confidence that Saudi Arabia and Russia would strike a deal in a few days. Oil prices were plumbing new depths for a few weeks, tumbling to the lows unseen since early 2000-es. Having replenished oil tanks in full, the White House was even serious about slapping high tariffs on imported oil, but they gave up this idea. Indeed, amid current low oil prices, neither Saudi Arabia nor Russia would find buyers in the American market. Thus, tariffs on imported oil make no sense.A collapse of oil quotes convinced all oil major oil exporters that the only solution would be a new pact on oil production cuts. The emergency OPEC+ online meeting was scheduled for April 9, 2020. The event ended with a new historic oil production cut agreement as the COVID-19 pandemic saps demand for crude oil. While oil is trading at record lows, some top energy companies such as ExxonMobil, BP, Royal Dutch Shell, Total, and Equinor have increased debt by $32 billion. They found support from the Federal Reserve as the regulator revived the crippled debt market with its stimulus programs. Now the companies can rely on leveraged funds.

      China capitalizing on coronavirus-driven crisis

      Name: img5e9efab9e4a68.jpg Views: 69 Size: 173.5 KB

      China, the country where the new deadly pneumonia-like virus was first recorded in December 2019, has stamped out the epidemic and is now cautiously reopening its economy. At the same time, most countries around the world have to take lockdown measures, expecting the pandemic peak in a couple of weeks. COVID-19 has already inflicted heavy losses on the global economy. Meanwhile, Beijing is always eager to profit from the troubles of other countries. At present, China’s energy companies are grasping the opportunity to make long-term contracts for oil delivery under the most beneficial conditions for them. In fact, China is taking advantage of temporary weakness of its global rivals.

      “The reaction of the Chinese authorities has been more rapid and rigorous than during the 2003 SARS epidemic, with the more relevant comparison being with 2008, when China faced a succession of tests: the 8.0-measured earthquake in May, the Olympics in August and the global financial crisis in the autumn,” Larry Brainard, chairman of London-based TS Lombard, commented on China’s moves after the lockdown had been lifted. On the one hand, Beijing deserves a thumbs-up for its prompt and efficient counter-measures. On the other hand, apart from Communist ideas, the Chinese leadership practiced dubious governing principles such as fake statistics on the outbreak, strict censorship, law enforcement abuse etc. At the time of the worldwide economic crisis, Beijing wants to capitalize on the coronavirus chaos. Besides the cheap oil, China forges ahead with the One Belt One Road project. Nowadays, lots of participants endeavor to find reliable sources of revenue, so they are poised to agree on China’s terms. The ambitious infrastructure project perfectly serves China’s goal of the economic reign for centuries ahead.

      Huawei Q1 revenue growth slows sharply


      Name: img5ea84a478b7f6.jpg Views: 65 Size: 178.0 KB

      Another company that has reportedly benefited from the US sanctions is China's tech giant Huawei Technologies. Recall that the largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer was at the heart of the real espionage scandal, which revealed that the allegedly private commercial company was actually one of the divisions of the Chinese state security services. Moreover, Huawei was accused of producing the equipment that could be exploited by Beijing for spying. After this fact was disclosed, the US authorities imposed sanctions against Huawei and encouraged its allies around the world to be more careful when concluding contracts with the tech company or even shun them. In response, the management of Huawei made an optimistic statement about its ability to derive a benefit from the sanctions slapped by Washington. Optimism was observed at all levels - from owners and executives to ordinary specialists. However, the company's financial performance report showed quite the opposite. Huawei's first-quarter revenues rose by less than 1% compared to 39% a year ago. Its net profit margin for this period slipped to 7.3%. The business sentiment also changed, and not for the better. Now the company predicts that "2020 will be the most difficult year." According to the tech giant's management, the United States does not take any steps to ease trade restrictions. Moreover, Huawei Technologies sees the ongoing effort by the United States to convince other countries to ban it from participating in the deployment of 5G.

      Bitcoin halving to force weak miners off the market


      Name: img5eac564b0088c.jpg Views: 66 Size: 151.0 KB

      In May 2020, the crypto market is anticipating another bitcoin halving, an important event in the cryptoworld. However, experts fear that this time halving could force the majority of the minors out of the network. The upcoming halving may leave smaller and weaker miners far behind or even lead to their takeovers by the major market participants. BTC halving is a planned reduction in reward miners receive for extracting tokens. Analysts warn that this event may bring significant changes to the current crypto market. In 2020, the block reward will drop to 6.25 BTC from 12.5 BTC. According to Wang Chun, the founder of F2Pool, this reward reduction may “kick out” many miners off the market leaving only the biggest and the most efficient players afloat. Alejandro de la Torre, vice president at Poolin, shares this view and adds that old generation miners are losing their competitiveness. They use outdated and inefficient equipment with high energy consumption and, therefore, they will have to give way to their competitors. Old generation miners will be replaced by large mining farms with advanced equipment and low electricity costs. These market participants are bound to go through the halving, experts believe. Currently, the majority of the large mining companies have access to cheap electricity which is a key factor for making the operation profitable. According to F2Pool managing director, only those farms which can mine bitcoins at a cost less than $3500 will manage to survive. As of April 29, bitcoin was trading at $8,150. Analysts believe that the price of the N1 cryptocurrency is likely to surge on May 12, 2020, when the next bitcoin halving takes place. Their estimates are based on the previous experience when the bitcoin’s price skyrocketed following the halving in 2012 and 2016. However, some crypto enthusiasts think that this time bitcoin has no obvious reasons to rise. According to the previous growth algorithms, its price is likely to jump in the next 1.5 years after the halving. Some cryptocurrency experts fear that the halving event may leave all the power with the major mining companies. This may completely destroy the healthy competition in the crypto market. On the other hand, the bitcoin mining industry may only benefit from the halving as it will continue to advance and will become more professional.

      Default Federal small business loan program riddled with problems

      Federal small business loan program riddled with problems

      Name: img5eb4211c45631.jpg Views: 34 Size: 151.7 KB

      The White House does not seem to waste words. The US government has promised to support small and medium-sized businesses and therefore announced a loan program called the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). As a result, money has been transferred to banks in no time. Now it is up to the giants of the country's financial sector which have to process applications for material assistance and make all payments. The Congress hoped that the implementation process would be smooth and timely, and most importantly, transparent. However, it turned out that banks were not prepared to handle such a large number of applications. In addition, there were cases where banks had limited some loan applications of small business owners for unknown reasons, favouring their old and larger customers. This is fundamentally contrary to the "first come, first served" commonly agreed approach. If the situation does not change in the nearest future, the Trump administration will have to step in and put pressure on the local top financial players. Donald Trump is well aware that his future political standing depends directly on the success of this program. This is the only way that can help to revive the US economy.

      EU economy sinks into severe recession

      Name: img5ebe7b8005d06.jpg Views: 22 Size: 205.5 KB

      The EU economy is still in the grips of the coronavirus pandemic which makes experts revise their gloomy forecasts. Actually, before the COVID-19 outbreak, the EU economy had been plumbing new depths. The coronavirus-driven crisis wrecked the hopes for a recovery in the ailing economy of the euro block. Lockdown measures have left an imprint on all sectors of the economy and disrupted the labor market in 27 countries of the euro bloc. The ECB projects a sharp 5.5% contraction in the eurozone’s GDP for 2020. Besides, the experts warn that most economic sectors will need a longer time to regain momentum than originally expected. The revival is going to unfold amid soaring unemployment rates which could climb as high as 9.4% this year. The jobless rate is expected to edge down to 8.9% in 2021 and decline to 8.4% in 2022. The median long-term forecast for unemployment in the EU was upgraded by 0.4% to 7.7%. Under the best-case scenario, the economy in the euro area could reveal the green shoots of recovery next year with a 4.3% economic growth. However, GDP is likely to slow down to 1.7% in 2022. The median long-term forecast for the eurozone’s GDP is left at 1.4%.

      Default US to punish China for COVID-19 outbreak

      US to punish China for COVID-19 outbreak



      Name: img5ec643290b9d6.jpg Views: 22 Size: 183.8 KB

      The White House openly accused China of covering information about the spread of the coronavirus. US President Donald Trump threatened China promising that such reckless behaviour would not go unpunished. The American leader is planning to impose additional tariffs on China’s imports. Moreover, the administration has already ordered the board overseeing the Thrift Savings Plan not to invest more than $4 billion into Chinese stocks. Eugene Scalia, the US Secretary of Labor, received a letter from Robert O’Brien, the National Security Advisor, and Lawrence Kudlow, the Director of the United States National Economic Council, calling on the board to keep money out of Chinese equities. According to the letter, China’s actions during the coronavirus pandemic are the main reason for the order. In response, the Chinese government declared that the country was ready for the escalation of the conflict between two world’s largest economies. Moreover, Beijing expressed willingness to break phase one of the trade agreement. However, Trump sticks to his plan and announces new punitive measures, including tariffs and even non-fulfilment of part of debt obligations.

      What pushes oil prices to new record highs?



      Name: img5ecc0c1d165ad.jpg Views: 11 Size: 203.4 KB

      Oil prices have gained momentum and are hitting new highs. Since the beginning of the week, Brent crude has been soaring. The price has already broken the level of $33 a barrel. The last time Brent crude reached such levels was in April. In fact, analysts lost hope for a recovery after a slump logged in May. However, the market is really unpredictable and it often surprises its participants. The fact is that the demand for oil is almost the same and it is too early to say that the new OPEC+ deal is already bearing fruit. Thus, these reasons are not enough for such a jump. Of course, cautious lifting of lockdown measures imposed to contain the coronavirus spread has a positive effect on the demand recovery. Besides, the US oil output reduction triggered by quite natural reasons also contributes to the demand mounting. However, the current momentum is not strong enough to push prices to new record highs. Nevertheless, at the moment, WTI costs more than $30 a barrel. A month ago, US light crude oil futures were trading in the negative territory.

      Sweden becomes model for new coronavirus policy



      Name: img5ed501b2afe26.jpg Views: 10 Size: 225.7 KB

      Sweden has all chances to avoid serious economic and social problems caused by the coronavirus outbreak. It is one of the Scandinavian countries that refused to impose quarantine and strict lockdown measures. The country’s authorities have chosen the so-called balanced approach. They suppose that in the absence of the necessary medication and vaccine, the main aim of the quarantine is to provide governments of various countries with the time to mobilize their healthcare systems and work out schemes to contain the disease. Self-isolation and quarantine are not able to stop the virus spread. Thus, Sweden decided that it would be more effective to reach the herd immunity. At the same time, Sweden’s authorities increased the protection of elderly people and the most vulnerable segments of the population. Of course, it is difficult to estimate the results. However, Sweden’s economy is not as damaged as the economies of other countries. The country will hardly face massive layoffs and unemployment as well as the recession and other consequences of restrictions. Moreover, the country managed to avoid social problems. In most countries, the stay-at-home order caused a climb in the number of sexual harassment and rape, divorce, depression, alcoholism, domestic violence, suicide, and general health deterioration. "Sweden represents a model if we wish to get back to a society in which we don’t have lockdowns," WHO’s top emergencies expert Dr. Mike Ryan said.
