Coronavirus-Infused Market Volatility is Bound to hit Australia and New Zealand

Despite some signs of a market recovery, the volatility is far from over. In fact, the global coronavirus crisis will only make a bigger mark on the markets as more time progresses. 

Coronavirus Market Volatility Isn’t Over

Several factors contribute to the uneasy market momentum around the globe. Investors are genuinely concerned as to what the future may hold. No investment appears to be stable or worthwhile right now, Every day the stock markets open, they note immediate losses.

Furthermore, not all countries have put proper coronavirus measures in place. Every day, an extra country appears to go into lockdown. That creates a strain on the local economy, forcing banks to take unusual measures. Quantitative easing is the name of the game as of right now, especially in the United States and Europe.

Injecting this unlimited liquidity into domestic economies is a dangerous game. It seems to confirm how the central banks are giving up on all traditional investments. This doesn’t bode well for stocks, equities, bonds, and treasuries. As more liquidity pours in, the “dumping” of these traditional assets only appears to intensify.

No country can escape the grasp of this volatility either. In the US and Europe, the situation is only growing worse over time. It now seems that Asian markets are recovering a bit. It is still too early to determine if the coronavirus crisis is under control in that part of the world. 

Other markets waiting to be affected include Australia and New Zealand. Not much news comes out of those regions regarding COVID-19. In New Zealand, people are calling from “improved measures” to thwart the virus. How those measures will affect the financial markets, is difficult to predict.

One announcement has already been made by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. The institution will buy back NZ$30 billion in government bonds. That approach is similar to what is happening in the US and Europe lately. Unfortunately, those measures are not making much of a positive impact. The demand for alternative assets, such as gold, silver, and Bitcoin, will not slow down anytime soon.
