The profits of the past eight trading days have now been erased. The increasing number of new infections is fueling fear of new corona-related restrictions or even a lockdown in certain regions. The significant increase in the number of initial jobless claims in the USA and statements by US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin that a new economic stimulus program is unlikely to be passed before the elections were also unsettling. The DAX® plunged at times over three percent and closed with a loss of 2.5 percent at 12,700 points and the EuroStoxx®50 at around 3,180 points. There is some economic data to be released tomorrow but no company data.
The rally in the bond market continued. Yields have thus again shifted into reverse. The yield on 10-year Bunds dropped 5 points to -0.62 percent and fell below the April low. The yield on comparable US papers lost three points to 0.71 percent. The precious metals presented themselves more easily. The price of gold fell slightly below the $ 1,900 mark. Silver lost over two percent to $ 23.80. Meanwhile, oil continued the sideways trend between $ 39 and $ 43.50 that began in early September. Today the price of a barrel of Brent Crude Oil gave up yesterday’s gains and fell to $ 42.20.
