A very challenging quarter for all world markets is coming to an end. In the current situation, we are entering a new quarter with mixed results. Some areas of the economy showed growth, some fell to record low levels. Summer, obviously, will be very interesting.



The focus remains on US-China relations. At the current stage, politicians are exchanging various laws regarding Hong Kong, but in any case, further deterioration of relations will affect stock markets. The U.S. real estate market index rose by as much as 44%, which greatly strengthened investors’ confidence in the economic recovery. But still, investors have to be cautious. Coronavirus is staying and not going anywhere yet. The S&P500 index is rising 0.4% on Tuesday to 3071. For the S&P500 it will be the best quarter, for which it rose by 18% on the background of strong support from financial institutions. Europe is also full of optimism, as from July 1, the borders of a part of the countries will be opened and air traffic will resume. The DAX index rose 0.64% to 12310.


EUR/USD remains within the range and most likely will not move anywhere until the release of macroeconomic data in the U.S., which will be available on Wednesday. Now investors are clinging to every news. If the data comes out very optimistic, the U.S. dollar will sell out, and the pair will go up, as investors will go into risky assets. On Tuesday, the pair EUR/USD traded at 1.1240. The movement will further depend on how good or bad the statistics will be.


Gold has shown the best growth performance since 2020 and is above the annual opening level. The rest of the market assets, unfortunately, did not show such dynamics. Given this, we can safely say that gold is the best investment since the beginning of 2020. On Tuesday, gold passes the next level of $ 1780 per ounce and renews the seven-year high. We can see that there is practically no sale, and the price is pushed straight to $1800. Most likely, from this psychological barrier there will be a small correction for the gain of strength, but then there will be definitely another attempt of break-down. On Tuesday, the gold trades at $1781 per ounce.
