Coronavirus. Who suspected that was coming. Epidemics and even pandemics are a somewhat regular occurrence. A check of statistics shows that there has been at least a dozen that have had an impact worldwide since 1900. That’s at least one every 10 years. But what is the effect on markets? We have a look. But the question begs. Will coronavirus morph into a worldwide pandemic or eventually just stay an epidemic? The former appears to be taking shape.

We moved our “Chart of the Week” from the end to near the beginning. We have a look at U.S. dollar hegemony and what it means.

Bonds and gold benefitted from the initial outbreak of coronavirus while stocks markets particularly those in Asia and oil and copper swooned. With bond yields falling the closely watched recession spread has begun to narrow again. As to the stock markets, have they topped? It was 20 years ago January that the Dow Jones Industrials (DJI) topped signaling the beginning of the end of the high tech/ bubble. The resulting crash saw the NASDAQ collapse 80%.

I’d written here on Friday that it would take a lot more than a virus to kill a U.S. bull market that has been powered by reckless buying. But we shouldn’t dismiss the possibility that coronavirus could turn out to be the black-swan event that investors knew would arrive eventually. The heavy selling that ended the week was noteworthy because it was accompanied by bullish breakouts in the Dollar Index and T-Bonds. Although it is difficult to predict exactly what this may portend, it is safe to say that if the respective uptrends in these massive markets gain momentum over the next week or two, a major tone change for financial markets and the global economy could lie in the offing.

Gold and silver will remain firm as long unless a vaccine to the Chinese corona virus is found. Treatment is there for the virus but there is no vaccine. The quicker the spread of the corona virus globally the quicker will gold and silver rise. Yen will also fall sharply if the numbers zoom.

I most often use linear scale charts for stocks, markets and indicators for their more absolute views. But in the case below we conjure up a long-term log scale chart showing the Gold/Silver Ratio (GSR) and the S&P 500 (SPX), as it works better in providing a percentage-based relationship between an indicator of market liquidity and inflation when declining and lack of liquidity, deflation or… it has to be said, Goldilocks, when rising.
