Fundamentals

  • The 10-year US treasury yields dropped from the highest levels in almost a year. Besides, Fed authorities rejected speculation that they could cut asset purchases soon. The USD closed in red yesterday and continues falling today.
  • Oil is rallying upwards! WTI oil approached the high of February 20 at $54.00, while Brent oil hit $57.00 heading towards $60.00. It happened after Saudi Arabia announced its plans to cut oil supply by an additional 1 million barrels per day in upcoming months.
  • The vaccines’ rollout and Biden’s pledge to unveil additional fiscal support in the US improved the market sentiment and bolstered bets on soon economic recovery.
  • The GBP rose after Bank of England’s Governor Andrew Baileydenied expectations of negative rates.
  • Gold remains at familiar levels near $1 850-1 860.
