An age of unprecedented oil volatility

Nitesh Shah
We have entered into a period of unprecedented oil price volatility following a twin supply and demand shock. Supply is likely to rise on the back of OPEC’s deal with partner countries coming to an end and demand is severely hampered by the COVID-19 impact on the global economy. It is difficult to see OPEC changing policy course back to where they were a few weeks ago. More likely the US will cut production which will eventually help stabilise prices.

Gold-to-silver ratio hits 50-year high

Nitesh Shah
Gold, despite being a defensive asset that one might expect to rise in the current environment, is actually falling, in light of the demand for liquid assets. However, we believe that gold, and consequently silver given their correlation, will start to perform very strongly once liquidity issues are resolved and will play its traditional role as a safe-haven asset again.

Defensive Assets: Gold, a precious ally in the fight against equity drawdown

Pierre Debru
Volatility is back in the market. The last few weeks have put investors' portfolios to the test. In our previous blogs, we had highlighted how long duration treasuries, Japanese Yen and high quality stocks could make portfolios more resilient to sudden shocks and the recent past really demonstrated this further. In this week’s blog, we focus on Commodities and illustrate how precious metals such as Gold can bring diversification and defensiveness to a portfolio.

Copper’s fundamentals displaced by the Coronavirus

Aneeka Gupta
Copper, often regarded as a bellwether of the broader global economy, has lost 8.16% as it grapples with slowing demand from China. While in the short term, copper prices will remain under pressure from weak sentiment stemming from transitory delayed demand stemming from the spread of the coronavirus. We believe in the long run copper’s fundamentals remain intact which should support its recovery.
