Global Stocks Fall, Bonds and Gold Rise After “Terrorist Attacks” In Brussels


 -- Published: Tuesday, 22 March 2016 | Print  | Disqus 

Safe haven assets, gold and German bonds rose, while European stocks and global stock futures fell, after explosions rocked a Brussels airport departure hall and a subway station near a number of important EU institutions. At least 26 people are reported to have been killed after the explosions which the Belgian prosecutor has alleged are “terrorist attacks.”

Asset Performance – March 22, 2016 (Finviz)

Gold in dollar terms rose 0.8% but the gains were greater in euro and sterling terms. Gold in euros terms rose from €1,108/oz to €1,123/oz or 1.3% and gold in sterling rose from £865/oz to £881.50/oz or nearly 2%. Silver also saw a safe haven bid and moved higher with gold to reach $16.oo/oz again.

The German DAX fell by nearly 1% and the Stoxx Europe 600 Index fell the most in a week as the attacks caused deaths and injuries and spurred fears of imminent follow-up attacks in the capital of the European Union and internationally.

Travel and leisure shares including airlines and hotels led the slide and futures on the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index also declined. Global stock markets fell from multi-week, month and annual highs as reports on the scale of the carnage in the Belgian capital unfolded.

The yield on 10-year bunds touched the lowest in almost two weeks, while gold gained for the first time in four days as investors sought safer assets.

The pound dropped by even more than than the euro and against all its major peers amid increasing concerns about the UK electing to ‘BREXIT’ and the ramifications of BREXIT for UK companies, the wider economy and indeed sterling.
