Drop in Oil Prices Spark Mixed Performance in the Asian Markets Amid Crisis

  • Asian securities struggle to carry upward momentum in the midst of plunging oil prices. Tuesday in Asia, the rating giant Fitch suggested that this is caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic’s disruption of oil demand-supply and storage issues.

    In Japan, equities may have taken hints from the Bank of Japan’s expansion of bond purchases, but could have neglected to overlook remarks from the top doctor that the country needs to keep crisis set up especially for the challenging preparations in 2021 Olympics.

    Furthermore, Fitch stated that the impacts of Coronavirus on banks in the Asia Pacific would be more difficult compared to a typical cyclical recession. 

    Amid every update revolving, oil costs slip beneath $11.00 with new worries with overcapacity and decline in demand. 

    On the other hand, stocks in China and India are maintaining small losses under 0.30%. 


    Other Countries Around The World

    In contrast, the pandemic’s conditions in New Zealand and Australia, along with Trump’s nudge for economy reopening, appear to drive the market’s risk-on stance.

    New Zealand strengthens and increases over 3.0% amid lockdown easing and optimistic remarks from the country’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

    Meanwhile, the US celebrates favorable results in the latest pandemic data. Also, US President Donald Trump’s allegations over China’s spread of virus ultimately causes oil dropping below $11.00.
