Perspectives + Prospects - Saturday, April 25

The Market Week In Review

The U.S. stock market ended the week lower, as oil continues to plunge and coronavirus concerns linger. These concerns also sent interest rates lower, as the ten-year treasury yield fell from 0.65% last week, to 0.60% on April 24th. Meanwhile, the spread between the ten-year treasury yield and the two-year treasury yield narrowed from 0.45% to 0.38%.

The price of gold rose nearly 3.0%, to $1,744 an ounce this week, as investors continue to flee to the haven metal. The price of crude oil continues to tumble over concerns of a vast surplus, and even dipped below $0 a barrel on Monday, April 20. However, it ended up finishing the week at $16.94 a barrel, which is 5.5% lower than it was a week ago, and over 70% lower since the beginning of the year
