Bets are increasing that the US Federal Reserve may have at least paused to raise interest rates further. This prompted the gold price to reach a six-month high of USD 2,016 per ounce. As with its little brother silver, the signs point to further price rises in the short term. The world's largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, even reached a new high for the year of over USD 38,000. Optimists are already anticipating prices well above the USD 50,000 mark.Read

After a sharp rise of around 30% to an annual high of USD 95.50 for the US West Texas Intermediate, black gold entered a correction and has since lost about 20% in value. Even events like the Hamas attack on Israel and OPEC+ production cuts were unable to halt the current decline. From a technical chart perspective, this appears to be a normal correction. In the long term, oil is expected to reach new highs with the next upward movement. JP Morgan, for instance, issued an updated price target of USD 120 per barrel as recently as September.Read

Global stock markets continue to head north and find themselves in the midst of a year-end rally despite the uncertainties in geopolitics. This rally is likely fueled by the ongoing easing on the interest rate front. The DAX, Germany's leading index, remains close to the critical 16,000-point mark. In addition, technology companies that have corrected sharply in recent months will likely face a sharp wave of recovery.Read

Shareholders of the chemical and pharmaceutical company Bayer suffered a black Monday following the discontinuation of a Phase III trial. As a result, Bayer shares fell to their lowest level since 2009. In contrast, there is optimism among other companies for a strong rebound. The biotech sector, in particular, seems to have bottomed out. There is a long-term opportunity for outperformance here, especially with second-tier companies.Read

The capital-intensive biotech sector was hit particularly hard when the US Federal Reserve began the massive interest rate hikes from zero to 5.5% in the first quarter of 2022. Since then, the broad-based Nasdaq Biotech Index has lost around 20% of its value. With the end of the strict monetary policy, this sector is now likely to experience a revival on the stock market. There is significant catching-up potential, especially among second-tier stocks.Read

After the corrections of recent weeks, the bulls have regained the sceptre. Despite the uncertain geopolitical situation and supported by an easing interest rate front, technology stocks were also able to recover significantly from their recent lows for the year. In addition, Germany's leading index, the DAX, knocked on the psychologically important 16,000-point mark. Overcoming this level will likely result in an attack on the all-time high at 16,532 points still within this stock market year.Read

Climate change is increasingly threatening our lives, with few areas worldwide considered safe. Sea levels are rising, and polar ice is melting. Many regions are experiencing severe storms and increased rainfall, while others face growing risks of heatwaves and droughts. Since the Paris Climate Agreement at the latest, countries have been stepping up their efforts to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. This has created a market that experts predict will increase eightfold by the end of the decade.Read

The hydrogen sector, which has been touted as having a promising future in terms of achieving climate goals, has been punished in recent months. Following Plug Power's disastrous quarterly figures, many peer group companies have now seen further sell-offs. In contrast, there are rays of hope to report from China in the photovoltaics sector, suggesting that the market leader could be on the verge of a strong turnaround.Read

The future belongs to green energy to achieve climate neutrality by the middle of this century. Despite political support, hydrogen, wind and solar stocks have suffered significant losses in recent months. The raw materials required for this have also slumped due to the threat of a global recession and are now at a two-year low, as in the case of lithium. In the long term, demand for critical raw materials will likely rise sharply again, heralding a new upward trend.Read

According to political plans, Germany wants to become climate-neutral by 2045, while the US has set itself this target for the middle of the current century. These targets are to be achieved through the use of renewable energies, heat pumps, electromobility and electricity and hydrogen networks. Outside of Germany, nuclear power is still being maintained, without which the climate targets could not be achieved, according to experts. While the price of uranium has climbed to a new 13-year high in recent weeks, renewable energy companies have been stumbling from one annual low to the next. Now, a bottom seems to be forming, at least in the short term.Read
