Oil prices exceeded $57 per barrel (bbl) for the North-Sea Brent benchmark adding 1.5% more in course of Asian trading hours on Wednesday to the already remarkable ten-week rally. This happened just after inventory stocks in the United States dropped by 5.8 million barrels to around 484.5 million barrels altogether, according to statistics for the week ending January 8 that were released bythe American Petroleum Institute (API)  late in the evening on the previous day. The latest official reports by the U.S.

A common place in the financial markets in the last months is the sentiment that the U.S. Dollar is poised to a further decline against other major currencies. Among other arguments put forward by investors were the combination of the Blue wave of Democratic dominance in the Congress of the United States and dovish monetary policy from the Federal Reserve (Fed). It is a fact that the presidency of Democrat Joe Biden is accompanied by the takeover of the majority in the Congress by Democrats.

Today's market sentiment is being appetite for risk. Congress reconvened to complete the ratification of President-elect Joe Biden's electoral college victory, with congressmen returning to the House of Representatives and Senate hours after they left due to a protest by pro-Trump protesters on Capitol Hill.  A new record for the Dow due to expectations of more stimulus for the U.S. economy is helping to boost European stocks this Thursday. The dollar recovers against most G10 currencies after U.S.

Today's market sentiment is appetite for risk. Democratic candidate Raphael Warnock defeated Republican candidate Kelly Loeffler in the Georgia Senate race, becoming the first African-American to represent the state in the Senate and the first Democrat in 2005. The dollar continues to fall against most major rivals as the results of the U.S. Senate elections in Georgia are known. The Treasurys' yields for 10 years reached the 1% threshold for the first time since March, after Georgia's election results boosted expectations that Democrats could gain control of the Senate.

Today's market sentiment is aversion to risk. A new national lockdown in the UK to contain coronavirus infection rates, along with uncertainty regarding votes for the Georgia Senate, are motivating current sentiment. European stocks are opening lower on Tuesday after US indexes fell sharply. The dollar came under pressure again during the Asian session, following the resurgence of Covid-19 cases around the world and before the second round of Georgia's Senate elections.

Today's market sentiment is being of appetite for risk. The distribution of vaccines for covid-19, as well as the stimulus that have been launched, support positive sentiment. Unprecedented measures taken by governments and central banks to support economies have encouraged investors to focus on the outlook for the next year, even if restrictions are likely to be increased because of the virus. The dollar continues to fall against most rivals on Monday due to strengthened optimism in the global economic recovery this year.

Federal Reserve (Fed) and its Chairman Jerome Powell have said nothing particularly new after the Fed’s Federal Open Market Committee meeting, which was the last meeting for 2020. Hopes for a further softening of monetary policy by the Fed eventually were not fulfilled. Interest rates were kept within the range of 0-0.25% and the Fed will continue to increase its holdings of securities by $120 billion a month, disappointing those who hoped for an extension of the purchase program. The monetary policymaker will buy U.S.

It may sound weird, but the title of the article can be found on a list of shock scenarios recently published by Saxo bank. There are no substantial calculations behind its forecasts, as the purpose of the list may rather be to point out possible shocks and surprises for the global economy for the year to come. However, this shock tactic may have some reason behind it, as some of these forecasted scenarios may be actual possibilities and developments that may unfold during 2021. One of the most intriguing scenarios suggested by Saxo Bank is the  rising demand for silver.

Last month’s  movements of gold prices are startling. After an impersonal rally this year from $1451 per troy ounce in March, the yellow metal in November lost 10% of its maximum price of $1965 per ounce to $1774, the worst monthly loss for the last four years. Did gold lose its function as a safe haven asset in November amid roaring pandemic and global economic turmoil?  Hardly. Gold maintains its safe haven status. Economic “storms” and jeopardies have eased since this spring, when investors sheltered themselves in gold instruments.

Today's market sentiment is being of appetite for risk. Stocks stabilize as investors consider positive factors such as the vaccine, the open path for Joe Biden in the White House and also Janet Yellen's nomination to the U.S. treasury. The yen accelerates on the Asian journey, spurred by the flight from risk related to fears about the effectiveness of covid-19 candidate vaccines. Treasury yields fell yesterday due to risk aversion, which led to bond rises. Oil prices follow mixed ahead of the OPEC+ meeting next week.
