Russia/Ukraine War Causing Market Volatility

War breaks out in Europe

Stock, forex, and commodity markets are in turmoil as a major conflict breaks out in Europe.

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin declared that the Russian Army would be moving into Ukraine in order to protect the breakaway states of Luhansk and Donetsk.

As a consequence, the tensions that existed on the Russia Ukraine border have now escalated to a full-on military conflict between two major global economies, with many far-reaching ramifications.

Global Markets in turmoil

Among the ramifications is the volatility injected in the world financial markets as uncertainty grips investors and prices for instruments are quickly and extraordinarily re-evaluated.

Exaggerated price movements in top Russian and Ukraine exports such as Crude Oil, Natural Gas, and Wheat, have occurred. Extreme volatility has also been present in instruments that are safe-havens such as the US Dollar and Gold, as well as risk-on instruments such as the NASDAQ100 index and growth stocks.

With the outbreak of war, a diplomatic resolution between Russia and Ukraine has become increasingly unlikely. The possibility of other nations being pulled into the conflict also exists. As such, volatility in the financial markets is expected to endure and possibly heighten.

Over the past 24 hours, tensions between Ukraine and Russia have escalated to military warfare and bloodshed. In light of these recent developments, please be aware that many financial instruments may continue to experience increased volatility. The instruments affected are wide-ranging and all are tradable at IC Markets.
