In the Hope of a corona virus vaccine, and commentary from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, were presented as the engine of the rise, and even a bullish move in crude oil and other growth-related assets, suggesting robust appetite for risk.

To this end, the ” XLE ” ETF “reveals” the energy industry has been one of the best sectors of the S&P 500 since the index has marked its low on March 20. That being said, the energy remains well below the performance of the technology, and, indeed, of the entire S&P 500, the year-to-date. Thus, it is likely that a certain degree of preference is granted because the sector has been one of the most devastated in the first accident, but the recent upturn in crude oil prices could fuel fusion high for the industry, regardless.
Further still, a continuation of the increase in the crude oil should ease the pressure for small-scale producers, who have been immersed in the non-profitability that the possession of the goods, are quickly shifted from an asset to a liability. In turn, the accumulation of stress and may reduce the risk of widespread bankruptcies, which, until now, have not materialized as many analysts first warned. That being said, the energy producers and the US shale industry is far from safe, but the turn higher in the crude oil, it is a sign of welcome.
