The market players are worried about the global slowdown mainly because of the economic uncertainties which are a threat to the global growth. The worries related to the trade wars are impacting the sentiments of market players and, moving forward, they might decide to liquidate their holdings in equity asset class. Moving forward, the equity markets might witness a negative impact if the economic uncertainties and geopolitical worries keep on increasing. However, yesterday, Dow Jones Industrial Average witnessed the strong favourable momentum. The Chairman of US Federal Reserve had recently commented that it had been actively observing the factors which have the potential to influence the broader US economy. It can be said that the global investors got comforted from the comments of the Federal Reserve Chairman.
The settlement of the trade battle is very important as it can reduce the worries in the minds of global investors and can prompt the market players to make deployments in equities. Yesterday (i.e. June 4, 2019), Dow Jones Industrial Average got ended in green as the index was closed at 25,332.18 which implies a rise of 512.4 points or 2.06% on an intraday basis. Also, on the same day, S&P 500 Index got ended in green as it witnessed a rise of 58.82 points or 2.14% on an intraday basis and got closed at 2,803.27.
Oil Prices Might Be Influenced by Several Macro Factors
The oil prices are very sensitive to the global factors and to the overall health of the global economy. A rise in the economic uncertainties and disturbances might affect the demand of oil and, as a result, the oil prices might also be influenced. The market players need to know that the movement of the stock markets also affects the oil prices. The settlement of trade battle can help the broader equity markets.
