US DOLLAR, GOLD, CRUDE OIL PRICE OUTLOOK: MARKET VOLATILITY ON THE RISE AS RISK APPETITE FIZZLES OUT

Market volatility looks rekindled as the VIX soars and stocks drop sharply. Climbing measures of cross-asset volatility highlight how trader sentiment has started to show signs of deterioration. This follows the latest FOMC announcement, which was accompanied by a cautious tone from Fed Chair Powell, particularly when the central bank head discussed the risk that the labor force likely faces lasting structural damage amid 20-plus million Americans unemployed abruptly.

Appetite for risk has also softened considerably alongside a re-acceleration in the trend of new coronavirus cases and hospitalizations. If sustained, governments might threaten to impose strict lockdown measures again and consumer confidence could collapse again. These recent developments have presented bullish tailwinds to popular safe-haven assets – like the US Dollar.

Gold prices have similarly enjoyed the latest return of risk aversion. The precious metal also likely benefits from central bank interest rate outlook anchored to zero for the foreseeable future. Cracking market sentiment and soaring cross-asset volatility could steer investors toward bullion and help bolster the price gold.

Crude Oil Price Chart VIX Index

Chart created by @RichDvorakFX with TradingView

Crude oil price action has crumbled nearly 10% since the commodity hit resistance the 40.00-handle earlier this week. The price of crude oil, which is generally sensitive to risk sentiment and global GDP growth expectations, tends to hold an inverse relationship with market volatility.

Correspondingly, crude oil bulls have struggled to maintain a bid under the pro-risk commodity. The direction of crude oil might continue mirror the VIX ‘fear-gauge’ and provide a bellwether for safe-haven demand in turn.
