The Dow Industrial Average closed down by 1.9% to 445 points, while, S&P 500 fell 2.2%. It is one of the worst's days for the two mentioned indexes since April 1. It is De javu for the Dow which is once again 20% below from its February's peak. Nasdaq Composite is declined by 1.4% which broke its four-day winning streak.
For commodities, Oil prices plummet severely after a few days of rallying even though President Donald Trump and the OPEC+ group of companies assured a production cut cost which means that the move only gave few days ease to the market. One more reason of the dip is due to oversupply; since most people are staying at home there are low demands on supply.
U.S. base crude, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) declined by -1.19% to $19.87 per barrel, while, Brent crude drop by -6.45% to $27.69 per barrel.
According to analysts there will be a possible force shutdown to most high-cost US shale companies and definitely some will not survive the crash.
As for Bonds, the yield on 10-year Treasuries decreased 12 basis points to 0.63% while the yield on the two-year Treasuries is down by 2.2 basis points to 0.203%, its lowest since Sept. 2011. The yield on the 30-year bond slumped by 13.9 basis points to 1.271%.
Currencies dips are to note too. Euro is down by 0.6% to $1.0912, while, Japanese yen weakened 0.3% to 107.56 per dollar. But U.S. Dollar Index (DXY) is up by .32% to 99.92 per dollar.
