Even the smallest ripples in the global scene are heavily reflected in the financial market. Hence, it’s no surprise that the pandemic that brought the world to a standstill sent a few shock waves across the world economy too.
Owing to lockdown in major countries due to the virus, the economic activities and productions had considerably decreased. Moreover, the crude oil price saw an all-time low with the declining demand. While the oil price did make a comeback, the undisputed fact is that the world economy is still on shaky ground.
With the weakening economies, the currency of any country is bound to take a few hits. As most of the major currencies are on the ride together, the effect on the currency market may be muted. But nonetheless, the forex market will definitely see an increase in volatility.
And the traders have their own set of obstacles to maneuver around to trade in this unpredictable environment. As the pandemic is flashed all across the media, currencies of countries with high infection rates will go through price fluctuations. Many traders may have to re-think their strategies in order to adapt to the latest commotion. And it is better to cut down on the risk by limiting the exposure.
