Here’s what’s moving the market on April 27.

Japanese yen surged after BOJ’s monetary stimulus

The BOJ claimed that it will buy the unlimited amount of government bonds. The central bank also will boost purchases of corporate bonds and commercial paper. The BOJ took the same measures as other countries did to support the national economy amid the corona crisis. The BOJ targeted short-term interest rates at -0.1% and 10-year bond yields around 0%. The central bank also made the GDP forecast for 2020 to fall by 3.0 to 5.0 %. Surprisingly, the Japanese yen surged maybe because the BOJ decision was expected by investors or the reason was that oil price dropped.

Oil slump

WTI and Brent oil prices declined to 14.3 and 20 respectively. Nothing’s changed, all oil storages are full and nobody still doesn’t need it.

Goldman foresees dark future for stocks

According to Goldman Sachs, the narrow breadth in S&P 500 signals future market drawdowns. Market breadth is a ratio that compares the total number of rising stocks to the total number of falling stocks. The opinion is based on the previous data as the breadth narrowed ahead of the recessions in 1990 and 2008 and during the economic slowdowns of 2011 and 2016. The investors concern that only 5 companies made 20% of the market capitalization and less than half members of S&P 500 were trading above their 50-day moving average, according to Bloomberg.
