How to Invest in Bonds: General Information

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Clients and Partners,

In this overview, we will discuss such a popular investment instrument as bonds. Investors use bonds for preserving and increasing their capital.

What are bonds?



A bond is a debt security with fixed revenue, used by the state or companies for attracting money by borrowing it from investors (funds, companies, or individuals). Bonds are often issued for raising money for certain projects. In essence, a bond is a credit agreement for a certain period with a fixed size of interest.

Buying bonds, an investor provides the issuer of the bonds with a certain sum of money that the company will later use. In exchange, the issuer will pay off a certain interest on this sum during a set period, and when it is over, will pay back the whole sum. Unlike a shareholder, a bondholder normally has no share in the company, no right to participate in shareholders’ voting, or receive dividends.

Some bonds are rated by agencies, such as Moody’s, Standard & Poor's, to help investors make up their minds about their quality. Such ratings are used for estimating the probability of paying back the borrowed sum. Normally, ratings of bonds are of two types: credit rating (trustworthiness) and profitability rating.

Main characteristics of bonds

The main characteristics of bonds are:
  • The Time of Maturity: it is the date when the issuer must pay back the borrowed sum. The term may vary from one to thirty years.
  • Principal, or Face Value is the sum that will be paid to the investor before the Time of Maturity. It can be paid in parts.
  • Coupon is the revenue that investors receive. It may be fixed or floating. Usually, the interest is paid by a schedule.

What types of bonds are there?



Corporate bonds are debt instruments issued by a company for attracting capital for development, research, or the introduction of inventions. The interest received from corporate bonds is taxable. Simultaneously, the interest on corporate bonds is usually higher than on municipal or state bonds.

Municipal (local) bonds are issued by cities, towns, regions, etc. to gather money for public projects, such as the construction of schools, hospitals, roads, etc. Unlike corporate bonds, the interest on local bonds is non-taxable.

State (treasury) bonds are issued by the government of a country. As long as they are fully secured by the government, they are considered the most trustworthy bonds. However, the interest on state bonds is much lower than on corporate ones.

The MFI: Peculiarities and Trading Strategies

Author: Maks Artemov



Dear Clients and Partners,

Today, we will get acquainted with the MFI (Market Facilitation Index). It was developed by an experienced trader Bill Williams and described in his book “The Trading Chaos”.

The author aimed at research and quality analysis of the ratio between trade volumes and the price of the asset. He assumed that the trade volume or turnover initiated growth. The larger the volume of the asset, the brighter the price growth.

Placement and appearance

In MT4, you can find the MFI in Indicators – Bill Williams. The indicator is displayed in a separate window under the price chart and looks like a histogram made of bars of four different colors. The color and width of the bars are customizable. By default, the colors are as follows:
  • MFI upwards, volume up – Lime
  • MFI downwards, volume down – SaddleBrown
  • MFI upwards, volume down – Blue
  • MFI downwards, volume up
Usually, it is up to the trader whether to place highs and lows – normally, they are not used in trading by the MFI. The indicator has no other settings.



What does the MFI show?

The indicator provides the following information:
  • The green bar means that the number of market operations increases and the trend is getting stronger. The current impulse may continue because new players come to the market and make a lot of operations. This signal is not meant for opening positions because the impulse emerged much earlier, and the price has already covered a long distance. But if the trader already has an open position, the growth of the green bar will mean they were right.
  • The brown bar means that volatility and liquidity are falling because market players are losing interest. Usually, such a bar precedes a flat, and the probability of a reversal is almost null. After the flat, the price may proceed in either direction with equal probability.
  • The blue bar indicates that the impulse is currently developing not because some new players have entered the market but because either buyers or sellers are leaving it. They have lost interest in the asset, and the situation is dubious.
  • The Pink bar shows that both bulls and bears are active. This bar promises a reversal and is most preferable for traders.
Though the MFI gives certain information to the trader, the author advises against trading by this indicator only. It should be used alongside other indicators or some trading strategy.

We’re actively expanding and pressing forward, that’s why the creation of our own investment fund was the next logical step of brand globalization.

  • Conservative approach to the choice of assets – the fund neither uses leverage nor considers investments in complex derivatives on credit swaps, in cryptocurrencies, and other similar instruments.
  • Transparent costs structure – investors pay only a fixed management fee of 2% and a performance fee of 20% on the return that exceeds 7% annual in the current financial year.
Who can invest with RFund?

Ten Point Trading Strategy: Morning and Night

Author: Maks Artemov



Dear Clients and Partners,

The Ten Point trading strategy is well-known by a wide circle of market participants and is based on simple entry rules; the percentage of profitable trades is quite high. An everyday profit, even if it is small, is good not only for the deposit but for the trader’s attitude to the market situation. This, in turn, inspires the trader for further work.

Peculiarities of Ten Points

The main part of beginners in Forex meet their death as traders due to trivial greed and endless losing trades. Meanwhile, beginners dream of making a huge profit right from the start, ignoring safety issues of careless and thoughtless strategy. Many do not guess that it is much easier to make small profits daily instead of a huge profit once in a long time.

So, for a beginner, it is much easier to find one entry point on a technical level a day and take their almost guaranteed 10-20 points of profit per session, spending the remaining time on analyzing the situation and perfecting their trading strategy that will later bring the profit.

Option one: trading at night

At the opening of a trading session (00:00 GMT), the trader draws support and resistance levels based on the data from the previous session. We look for the highs and lows of the preceding period. There is a theory that the price may break away the highs and lows of the previous session because major market players put their Stop Losses and pending orders there.

When such orders are triggered, the price may make a sharp movement, which is what we are looking for. Some might say that we are making wild guesses about the direction in which the price will go, but this is the point.

Entering the position

Marking the high and low on the chart, place pending orders on their breakaways. Use Buy Stop for buys and Sell Stop for sales. To decrease the probability of false triggering, place the orders two points away from the extreme (the Buy Stop – two points above the high, the Sell Stop – two points below the low).

Wait for the trading situation to develop. The Stop Loss is 20 points away from the entry point. As the name of the strategy suggests, the TP is 10 points away from the entry price. Let us now discuss the situation when these conditions change.

Exiting the position

The first condition is triggering of one of the orders; in this case, delete the second one manually, regardless of the results.

The second way of exiting is deleting both orders at the end of the trading session, if they have not been triggered, and placing new ones based on the new data.

How to Scalp in Forex: A Guide to Scalping

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Clients and Partners,

In this overview, we will discuss what is scalping and whether it suits everyone. Scalping is a popular method of short-term trading in Forex with the use of leverage.

What is scalping?

Under scalping, traders mean short-term intraday trading strategies. The term originates in the Latin “scalpere” - “to cut”. Scalping presumes a lot of intraday trades – short and with modest goals. The technique consists of quickly “cutting” small profits off the price movement.

The option of marginal trading (i.e. with the use of leverage) has made scalping quite a popular strategy. A small fluctuation by a couple of points can bring the trader a serious profit thanks to large leverage. Scalping is perfect for traders with a small deposit that does not allow for long-term positional trading. For scalping, we use small timeframes: M1, M5, M15.

Trading strategies for scalping

Nowadays, you can find plenty of scalping strategies on the net. Still, approach every strategy individually: one trader prefers an empty price chart, another one enjoys indicators, the third one sticks to automatic trading.

Choose your strategy based on your preferences and test it well on a demo account before trading for real. Now let us discuss three strategies meant for scalping.

Victory trading strategy

This is a strategy that uses indicators; it consists of scalping on M1 and M5. The indicators used are the TMA, TMA Size, CTF, Currency Power Meter, SSRC, HP DIFF. In our blog, we have a detailed article about this strategy.



A scalping strategy with two Moving Averages (EMA)

This is a mixed strategy that supplements tech signals on smaller timeframes (M1, M5, M15) with the crossing of two EMAs. The strategy uses tech analysis patterns, support, and resistance levels, the crossing of two EMAs with different periods. This strategy is also described in detail in the article "Scalping Strategy with Two Moving Averages (EMA): Description and Rules".



BF Scalper Expert Advisor

It is an automatized scalping strategy. The expert advisor uses several technical indicators, the MAs and Bollinger Bands; the timeframe used is M15. The expert advisor demonstrated satisfactory results on tests. Again, take a look at the description in our blog.

How to Invest in Gold?

Author: Andrey Goilov



Dear Clients and Partners,

Gold is a safe-haven asset in times of world financial crises. The pandemics of the coronavirus and political turbulence in 2020 pushed the gold prices up higher than the level of 2000, though at the beginning of the year it cost no more than 1,500 USD per troy ounce.

Advantages and drawbacks of investing in gold

As you see, there are plenty of options for investing in gold.

The easiest way is to invest in exchange instruments, such as futures and CFDs. Trading such instruments, you do not need to buy physical gold, transport, and store it.

Compared to mutual funds, such investments are quicker to make a profit; trading CFDs, you can always close the trade yourself and exit the market, waiting for better times. However, to use exchange instruments, you need some minimal knowledge of it.



Currently, the quotations of gold are going down again – buyers failed to hold the highs. However, traders are sure that this is just the beginning of a new wave of growth, and the price will start going up very soon. Regardless of such prominent growth this year and the confidence of traders, gold cannot boast high profitability. For example, Bitcoin grew from 8,000 to 19,500 USD in 2020, leaving gold far behind.



Why do traders keep investing in it?

The main reason is low volatility, compared to digital currencies and stock indices. In this article, we will discuss the ways of investing in gold, the difference between them, and the profitability of investments in this precious metal.

Summary

Gold is not the most profitable asset. However, you can be sure that it is among the safest ones nowadays. Moreover, even after a decline, it resumes growth, even in times of global crises.

Remember that each investor should have their strategy because each person has different demands and financial capabilities.

How to Keep a Trading Diary? Practical Tips

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Clients and Partners,

Silver has been known since ancient times: some of the first silver deposits in Corsica and Cyprus were developed by Phoenicians. Refined silver was a rare treasure at those times, sold for exorbitant prices. Silver was used for making coins, jewelry, tableware, and dishes – such things are found as buried treasures from time to time. Amazing disinfectant properties of silver were noted by Scheele and Paracelsus.

In this overview, we will discuss why silver seems attractive to investors and which instruments to choose for investments in it.

Why is silver attractive?

As long as the global economy is stuck in a crisis provoked by the pandemics, the demand for precious metals is growing. As a rule, precious metals, such as gold and silver, enjoy special attention when the perspectives of currency rates, especially the USD, are vague. Gold, the most popular precious metal, renewed its all-time high this summer.

Silver, which is the second most popular precious metal, is also in high demand and growing. As well as gold, it is used for making jewelry, coins, and ingots. The silver market is smaller than the gold market, which makes the quotations more volatile.

The supply of silver is formed by three main sources:
  • Primary production is the production of silver from mined ore. The largest world’s supplier of silver is Mexico, then go Peru, China, and Australia.
  • Secondary production means remelting pieces of art, jewelry, dishes, and recycling photographic film and electric contacts.
  • The third source is physical silver deposits. A lot of metal is stored in large exchanges that specialize in trading metals (COMEX, LME) and various state storages.
Silver is actively used in industry: the metal is used in car parts, electronic gadgets, solar batteries, and photography. New technologies, such as silver oxide batteries, silver conductive ink, and various silver-based nanotechnologies in medicine, are growing more popular. As a result, the demand for silver is growing gradually, making the metal attractive for investments.



Next, let us discuss popular ways t invest in silver, their advantages and disadvantages so that you could make up your mind.

How Does Crude Oil Price Influence USD/CAD?

Author: Maks Artemov



Dear Clients and Partners,

Oil has become an intrinsic part of our lives, and humanity depends fully on it: oil is not just a source of energy but also the material from which many everyday things are made.

It has long been argued that only large corporations can make money on crude oil but this is wrong. Most types of oil are available for trading in the stock market, the most popular types are BRENT and WTI. The USD is the most widespread currency in the world, used for the biggest part of transactions. The majority of wealthy people keep their capital in the USD. The Canadian dollar is less popular over the globe. It is a commodity currency, which means it reacts actively to commodity prices, oil and gold in particular.

Today, we will discuss the interaction and correlation of oil prices and the CAD. If you look closely at the charts of BRENT and USD/CAD, you will notice certain patterns in the dynamics of the assets. As long as the Canadian economy depends on oil production and selling, USD/CAD quotations correlate with oil ones

What is the correlation?

Correlation is the way assets relate to one another at a certain period. There are three types of correlation:
  • Positive correlation means that two instruments are going in one direction during the observation time. The observed assets will rise or fall proportionately. The charts are similar.
  • Negative correlation means that the assets are going in the opposite direction. While one asset is growing, the other one will be declining. The charts look mirror-like.
  • Zero correlation means that the instruments are acting with no obvious relation to each other.
As long as in the USD/CAD pair the US dollar comes first, the correlation will be negative. This means that the growth of oil will cause a price chart of USD/CAD to fall.

Example of USD/CAD trading

Look at the H4 of USD/CAD and WTI. The WTI quotations broke through the resistance level and started growing. At that moment, the situation on the USD/CAD chart is the opposite: the price began to fall fast. During 8 candlesticks the oil price was growing, then returned top the broken resistance level. As for the price chart, the quotations keep declining, pulling back from time to time. This might mean that Canada made a profit on oil and somewhat secured its national currency against the US dollar. Then if oil quotations keep growing, USD/CAD will be falling, asserting further strengthening of the Canadian dollar.



Though there is an obvious correlation between oil and USD/CAD, it would be wrong to use it for trading without additional filters. The market is full f false surges that provoke unpredictable rises and declines. Anyway, this correlation can be used as a supplementary signal supporting the direction of the price.

How to Invest 1,000 USD? Three Versions for Beginners

Author: Andrey Goilov



Dear Clients and Partners,

A bank deposit will not bring a lot of profit from 1,000 USD; the profit is unlikely to cover up for inflation even. The first thing that comes up in your mind is marginal trading. It allows opening trades for sums much larger than you have on your deposit. Leverage is most often used in the currency market, however, it requires the knowledge of tech analysis and constant monitoring of what is going on. Also, leverage entails additional risks for the investor.

Our blog is about trading, so let us try to make up our mind about investing in risky assets and whether you can make money there, or whether it is better to invest your 1,000 USD conservatively.

Investments in cryptocurrencies

Among super-profitable ones, crypto investments have become trendy. The price for such assets has been sky-rocketing for the last three years. However, after incredible growth, cryptocurrencies switched to downtrends and flats. But the uptrend managed to restore, and since this year, the price for the BTC has grown from 7,500 USD to 19,850 USD. For example, if you bought the Bitcoin for 1,000 USD at the beginning of 2020, you could receive 2,500 USD today, which makes 1,500 USD of profit.



Today, people are investing in cryptocurrencies again. A company that heated the market tangibly is PayPal that made storing and buying crypto possible for citizens of the USA. In the company, they say that the demand for such services turned 3-4 times higher than expected. Investment funds are also considering cryptocurrencies as potentially profitable and add them to their strategies.

Investments in gold

We have discussed investing in this precious metal in the article “How to Invest in Gold?”. The easiest way was, again, investing in CFDs. Such contracts allow for buying and selling gold without purchasing it physically, just making money on the difference in the prices.

At the beginning of 2020, gold cost 1,550 USD per troy ounce. In August, the quotations reached a high of 2,072 USD; currently, they are trading at 1,846 USD. By buying the instrument for 1,000 USD at the beginning of the year, you could make a good profit in the middle of the year already. As for the long run, the pandemics might cause investors to buy gold, which will provoke another increase in the price of the precious metal.



The growth of gold is unlikely to be as impressive as that of cryptocurrencies as it is a more conservative investment instrument. Anyway, many traders these days compare gold and the BTC noting that the latter is replacing the precious metal because it is to move and pay with, and it is supported by traders’ interest.

As for the charts, the crypto prices are at their highs while the gold price dropped from 2,070 to 1,846 USD. Cryptocurrencies are more volatile while conservative investors prefer gold.

How Does Gold Influence on Forex?

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Clients and Partners,

Gold is one of the first metals that people learned to mine, process, and use. First gold artifacts belong to the pre-dynastic period in Ancient Egypt, i.e. about 5000 B.C. Thanks to being beautiful, rare, and durable, gold has always been used as a universal exchange means, an analog of money.

In this article, we will discuss how the fluctuations of gold quotations influence the prices on Forex.

Gold standard

The gold standard is a monetary system that emerged as a result of the wide use of gold as a universal currency. The gold standard guarantees that all the issued money can be exchanged for the corresponding amount of gold on demand. In transactions between countries that use the gold standard a fixed exchange rate of the currencies is used, based on the standard.

The gold standard that was in force after WW2 was accepted at a conference in Bretton Woods. According to the international agreement, the USA was committed to providing for the gold standard of 35 USD per troy ounce of gold. Only countries represented by their Central banks got the right to exchange dollars for gold. So, at that time the USD was really supported by gold and acquired the status of the global reserve currency.

The epoch of the gold standard ended in 1971 when the USA abandoned the free exchange of the USD for gold. The main reason for the collapse of the Bretton Woods system is the excessive quantity of dollars issued by the USA that were not supported by gold anymore. Since then, the amount of dollars in the world economy keeps growing, currency rates are set by the market, while gold is growing more expensive every year, renewing all-time highs.

This year, gold set another record, rising above 2,000 USD per troy ounce. And the growth of gold is likely to continue because the USA keeps printing dollars and pouring them into the global economy.



Which currencies are influenced by gold?

The price of gold can influence the rates of almost all currencies. Changes in the demand for and supply of gold affect the USD firsthand because the price of gold is usually given in the USD. Also, the dynamics of gold prices significantly influence those countries that produce the metal at a scale, important for their economies.

Today, we will discuss the interaction and correlation of oil prices and the CAD. If you look closely at the charts of BRENT and USD/CAD, you will notice certain patterns in the dynamics of the assets. As long as the Canadian economy depends on oil production and selling, USD/CAD quotations correlate with oil ones.

What is the correlation?

Correlation is the way assets relate to one another at a certain period.

There are three types of correlation:
  • Positive – correlation means that two instruments are going in one direction during the observation time. The observed assets will rise or fall proportionately. The charts are similar.
  • Negative – correlation means that the assets are going in the opposite direction. While one asset is growing, the other one will be declining. The charts look mirror-like.
  • Zero – correlation means that the instruments are acting with no obvious relation to each other.
The CAD starts growing when the country sells its oil at a higher price. The pricier oil becomes, the better for the Canadian economy thanks to the profit it makes.

As long as in the USD/CAD pair the US dollar comes first, the correlation will be negative. This means that the growth of oil will cause a price chart of USD/CAD to fall.

How USD/CAD correlates with BRENT and WTI on the chart

On the chart, the USD/CAD pair is in a downtrend, renewing the lows. From time to time, the quotations correct but this does not take long. As a result, the US dollar loses to its Canadian counterpart.



BRENT on D1 has been in an uptrend for a month already. Regardless of a drawdown, it is recovering.



WTI on D1 demonstrates a similar picture to that of BRENT. It has been growing for a couple of months and keep recovering from all pullbacks.

How to Beat Greed in Forex?

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Clients and Partners,

The ability to control your emotions lies at the basis of your expertise as a trader. If a trader falls prey to their emotions, they lose control over their trading. This means breaking the rules of your trading system and, as a rule, ends in losing your money.

In this overview, we will discuss what is greed in Forex and how to beat it.

How does greed appear?

Many people start trading in the hope they will get reach in a short time. This misjudgment is supported by fantastic stories of success spread by the media. You might have heard of a young trader from the US Timothy Sykes who started trading in high school and earned his first million by the age of 21. Sounds amazing, doesn't it?

However, many neglect the fact that Sykes achieved this by long and painful training, making mistakes, losing money, but perfecting his strategy, and coping with his emotions. Experiences traders know that trading provokes the strongest human feelings and passions that you need to bring under control. A bright example is greed that can lead to losses and depression if you let it rule.

Greed is an unstoppable desire to own more and more fortune. Some might say that this is all personal, and there is nothing reproachable in the craving for more. However, greed is usually accompanied by unrealistic expectations and hopes, and a lack of self-control. This becomes a large stumbling rock in the trader's way to success because they start breaking their trading rules, which leads to losses.

Also, greed increases stress and nervousness that nag on the trader throughout their work. This is a direct way to exhaustion that makes it difficult to think rationally about trading in financial markets altogether. Hence, you need to know how to detect greed in the early stages and fight.

Main symptoms of greed



Let us have a look at the main symptoms that signal the advent of greed.

Unrealistic expectations

Ambitions are great when they are rational. However, when it comes to money, one's common sense often loses the battle to greed, especially if the first couple of trades was a success. Trading on a demo account, which is where most traders start from, is peculiar in the sense that there is no psychological barrier in it — the money is not real. On a demo account, trading is fun.

That is why many over-ambitious traders rush at switching to a real account. They think that if they made it on a demo, real trading will also go smoothly, so why to waste your time on sheer practice. Their expectations are too high, they imagine how they become millionaires in a week. However, real trading quickly sobers them, but the lack of due preparation and money-management skills leads to losses.

Poorly based hopes

A poorly based hope for a profit must in no way be the moving force for a trader. Such hopes, having no real support, lead to increased risks. This feeling is characteristic mostly of beginners, who hope that their trades will for sure bring them a profit if they wait for a little.

Ten Most Popular Mistakes in Forex Trading

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Clients and Partners,

In this overview, we will discuss ten common mistakes made by Forex traders. Knowing these mistakes in the face, you can try to avoid them and enhance your trading.

1. Bad preparation

Quite a common mistake among beginners is trading without a due level of preparation. Having listened to some basic course about trading or having read some literature on their own, a trader rushes at real trading in the hope to start making money at once. As a rule, the market punishes them for the haste, and they waste their deposit.

Theoretical preparations give only the basic understanding of how Forex works and how to trade in it. To learn how to make money, you need practice. In my opinion, you need no less than a year of practice (preferably under the guidance of an experienced trader) on a demo or small real account before you start applying your knowledge to serious sums.

2. Unsystematic trading



A trading system is the main instrument of a trader that makes his advantage in the market and helps them earn money stably. In other words, this is a certain set of proven trading rules that helps to make a profit. Any system, of course, can cause losing trades but the overall result (during a month, quarter, year) must be profitable.

However, if a trader does not have a neat, clear, and proven trading system, and they make trades chaotically, sooner or later they will lose their deposit. Forex never forgives careless trading: if you trade without a system, there are more chances that you will lose than gain. You still can make a profit on random trades but your luck will come to an end once. In the long run, you can only succeed with the help of a reliable trading system.

3. Following other people’s advice

Another mistake of beginners might be following other people’s advice blindly. There are plenty of advisers on the net that will always tell you how to invest “correctly”. However, not all of them are necessarily successful trades, and anyway, you will not last long on other people’s wit, you need to have your opinion.

How to invest 10,000 USD?

Author: Andrey Goilov



Dear Clients and Partners,

A not long time ago, we discussed the possibilities of investing $1,000. And if it was a rather small amount, then $10,000 is looking much more fascinating for investments.

To find the correct answer to this question, we should take several things into account. First of all, goals and periods of investments. If the period is rather short, then one may risk and consider aggressive methods of investing. If you need to use the money, which you want to invest, in a couple of weeks or months, then you can choose an option of investing it in stocks that may bring profit in years, that’s why investment horizons are a very important parameter.

Another factor is your attitude to risks, which can be assessed by answering some questions, for example, how much will your life change if you lose this money? If your appetite for risks is okay, then you can try the currency market and trade with the leverage according to a chosen strategy.

Emotions have a very significant influence on investments: a lot of beginner investors tend to close positions when the market starts falling, at the time of a slight drawdown, which may sometimes be considered as a good time for buying. If emotions can’t deal with such drawdowns, it might be better to switch to conservative ways of investing.

What is the best way to invest $10,000?

The modern world offers plenty of ways to invest your money and some of them don’t even require you to leave home. However, you should remember that many of the offered investment methods are of speculative nature, while more aggressive ways imply significant risks. Moreover, unfortunately, but the previous results shouldn’t be considered as a prediction of receiving profit in the future because financial markets are quickly changing, as well as global affairs and events. Let’s discuss the most popular investment methods.

Stock market



There is an opinion that if there is $10,000, one can trade on the stock market with comfort. Still, this trading implies not only buying stocks: an investor must follow the news and behavior of stocks. The most part on investors seeks to buy during the market meltdown because later it will recover and the price will go up. However, the anticipation of a rebound may take much time.

For example, Warren Buffett dissuades from choosing any particular stocks but offers to invest money in some unexpensive companies. If you take a closer look at Buffett’s portfolio, you will find shares of such companies as Apple, Bank of America, Coca-Cola, American Express, JP Morgan Chase, Moody’s, Goldman Sachs.

These companies’ shares plunged early in the year but they are growing again and, probably, may reach their peaks in the nearest future. Such market movements confirm that the best possible moment for buying stocks might be the time when they fall to lower prices because such investments are not considered to be short-term.

Тop-5 of impressive leaps on the global market in 2020

Author: Server Ametov



Dear Clients and Partners,

Don’t worry, it’s not a “year in review” yet but we’re getting pretty close to it. Today, we’ll try to carry you away with the list of the most dramatic ups and downs in quotes of 2020. Enough with the prelude – let’s get to the point!

WTI

The “black gold” market is still terrified when remembering April 2020: on April 20th, the price dropped to the bottom at -$37.63 per barrel, thus losing 305.97%. Just in case: it was neither hyphen nor en dash, it was a minus sign.

Due to the spread of the coronavirus, quarantine restrictions were introduced almost everywhere in the world. Borders were closed, the transport sector froze – the demand for the oil plummeted quickly and frighteningly, while the daily output was just about to go up: on April 1st, the OPEC+ agreement, which prevented the largest oil-producing countries from increasing the production, fell apart.

Under such conditions, oil reservoirs were filled very quickly. Early in April, a major hub for WTI in Cushing, Oklahoma, was 72% filled. This was probably the case when an optimist would say 28% empty instead of 72% full.

The expiration date of the May futures was quite close, the “black gold” was needed by no one and didn’t have any extra place to be stored, that’s why investors started selling it in a big way, thus collapsing the market by more than 300%.

Chesapeake Energy

Hard times for Chesapeake Energy started this spring. The energy prices plunged, shale oil production became subeconomic, the company’s debt reached $9.16 billion, while losses for the first quarter exceeded $8 billion, which is by 400 times more in comparison with the same period of 2019.

In November, Chesapeake Energy shares cost less than $1, thus making the circulation of shares at the NYSE impossible and almost forcing delisting. To avoid this, the company’s management decided to make a reverse stock split 200 to 1 but this move barely improved the situation.

On April 12th, the OPEC+ had a new agreement, according to which, oil-producing countries had to cut the daily output starting from May 1st. This agreement brought hope for a soon recovery of the sector and drove up the demand for shares of undervalued companies of the segment.

Speculators, who had been increasing their short positions for a long time, didn’t expect shares to grow and had to buy them at any available price. As a result, on June 89th, Chesapeake Energy shares skyrocketed by 181.94% and reached $69.92 per share.

However, it was a one-day leap, which, perhaps, was, the final good news for the company. In late June, it filed for bankruptcy and got a delisting memo from the NYSE.

Biogen

For many years, an American biotechnological company called Biogen has been developing Aducanumab, a medication to fight Alzheimer's disease. At long last, in August 2020 the firm put a request for approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

On November 4th, the regulator announced that it had received enough information from the pharmaceutical company and was assessing the possibility of approval of Aducanumab as high. The market was positive in its response to this news: Biogen shares went up by 44%, from $247.01 to $355.63 per share.

The most important events of the financial world in 2020

Author: Server Ametov



Dear Clients and Partners,

And here are the results of the year, friends! We honestly warned you about them in the previous article. So take a few minutes off your prayers for an early end to 2020 and check out our selection of events that we think were the most significant.

1. COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine (surprised, huh?)

Perhaps there is no more annoying and painful topic than this one. However, in 2020, the whole world was forced to play by cruel rules dictated by the coronavirus infection. As of this writing, 82 million disease cases were recorded worldwide, 46.3 million recovery cases, and 1.79 million deaths.

In late February - early March, the stock market crashed. These were the worst trading weeks since the 2007-2008 financial crisis. March 9 has already gone down in the history of exchanges as "Black Monday," March 12 - as "Black Thursday." No one even tried to name all the following days of an inconsolable and uncompromising fall.

The indices reached the bottom on March 18-23. Let's compare the indicators of those days with the statistics of the beginning of the year. The picture emerges as follows: the Dow Jones Industrial Average sank 35.6%, the S&P 500 by 31.3%, the Nasdaq 100 by 21.2%, the Stoxx Europe 600 by 33, 7%, Kospi - 31.8%, Shanghai Composite - 13.4%, Hang Seng - 24%, Nikkei 225 - 28.7%, S&P/ASX 200 - 32%.

COVID-19 and quarantine measures have hit such sectors of the global economy as air, land, sea passenger and cargo transportation, hotel and spa business, entertainment, oil, and heavy industry.

But we can call the technology sector the primary beneficiary of the pandemic. The best proof of this will be the growth statistics of IT companies quotes. Since the beginning of the year, Apple has risen in price by 85%, and its capitalization has reached $ 2.3 trillion, Amazon grew by 79.9%, Microsoft by 42.2%, Facebook by 35.4%, and Alphabet by 31.2%.

We also wanted to note the growth of shares of Zoom Video Communications by 430% and Netflix by 64.2%. As of this writing, companies' capitalization was $ 101.2 billion and $ 234.5 billion, respectively. So much for the delights of quarantine and working remotely.

2. Antitrust hearings

Since we have already touched upon the largest representatives of the technology sector, it is fair to say that not everything went smoothly for them in 2020. The primary headache was lawsuits and antitrust investigations.

Only Alphabet, Google's parent company, was sued three times during the year. On October 20, the US Department of Justice and 11 states accused the IT giant of creating a monopoly on the browser market. Plaintiffs are seeking the sale of Chrome. On December 16, 10 states accused Google of monopolizing the online advertising market. On December 17, 38 states went to court, accusing the corporation of a monopoly in an online search.

Facebook is also involved in one of the lawsuits listed above. Prosecutors allege that Mark Zuckerberg's company entered into an illegal conspiracy with Alphabet. The social network already lacked litigation. On December 9, the US Federal Trade Commission, along with 46 states, accused Facebook of suppressing fair competition and insist on selling Instagram and WhatsApp.
