MARKET NEWS

Oil gets another dose of geopolitical support

20 Jan 2020
Brent oil rose close to 1.8% intra-day on Monday 20th January before paring some of its gains. Libya – a country where oil production has been unstable for a number of years – is seeing production cut to the lowest level since 2011. Libya’s eastern warlord has choked off oil production in an act of defiance after disagreeing with the Peace Summit in Berlin over the weekend.

Palladium notches another all-time high

20 Jan 2020

The metal - primarily used in gasoline cars – has seen a demand boost in recent years as more people are buying gasoline rather than diesel cars. At the same time, there has not been any significant growth in supply, nor do we expect supply growth in the short-term. The result is a tight market, driving the price of palladium to over US$2500/oz, up from US$1350/oz on 20/1/2019.

 

Phase-One trade deal signed

20 Jan 2020

On Wednesday 15th January US and China signed an interim deal on trade after close to two years of fraught negotiations. It falls short of a comprehensive deal, but we believe it is likely to take market focus away from potential demand-destruction that rising trade protectionism could entail. Avoiding new tariffs could help the cyclical commodity-complex trade on its own fundamentals rather than on fears of demand destruction that has weighed on the market in the past year.

Important information

 

Short & Leveraged Exchange-Traded Products are only intended for investors who understand the risks involved in investing in a product with short and/or leveraged exposure and who intend to invest on a short-term basis. Any investment in short and/or leveraged products should be monitored on a regular basis (as frequently as daily) to ensure consistency with your investment strategy. You should understand that investments in short and/or leveraged exchange-traded products held for a period of longer than one day may not provide returns equivalent to the return from the relevant unleveraged investment multiplied by the relevant leverage factor. Potential losses in short and/or leveraged exchange-traded products may be magnified in comparison to investments that do not incorporate these strategies. Please refer to the section entitled “Risk Factors” in the relevant prospectus for further details of these and other risks associated with an investment in short and/or leveraged exchange-traded products. You should consult an independent investment adviser prior to making an investment in short and/or leveraged exchange-traded products in order to determine suitability to your circumstances.
