Borsa Canlı, the real-time market tracking tool of Turkey’s Istanbul Stock Exchange, caught the eye of investors from around the world on Monday, May 24th, when it showed the Singapore Exchange (SGX) as having a rather flat performance, while Asian indices took a hit, and Brent crude oil prices reaching 73$ per barrel.
At the start of the day, SGX, which is the primary stock exchange of Singapore, showed a marginal growth of 0.01% in the key Straits Times Index (STI), reaching 3,142 points. At the same time, Japan’s Nikkei 225, an important benchmark index of Tokyo Stock Exchange, fell by 0.92% to 28,087 points. Also, the Shanghai Composite Index of China dropped by 0.36% to 3,596 points, and the Hang Seng Index of Hong Kong lost 0.13% to 29,119 points.
The bearish sentiment in Asian markets can be attributed to rising concerns among investors related to inflation and the possibility of central banks tightening monetary policies to curb it. The recent spike in commodity prices, including Brent crude oil, has raised fears of higher costs for businesses and consumers alike, which could lead to lower demand for goods and services.
Brent crude oil, which had been trading above 70$ per barrel since mid-May, reached 73$ per barrel on Monday, its highest level in two years. The increase in oil prices can be attributed to the gradual easing of pandemic-related restrictions in various parts of the world, leading to higher demand for oil, coupled with OPEC+ supply cuts and disruptions in some oil-producing regions.
The rise in oil prices not only impacts the energy sector but also has implications for other industries dependent on transportation and logistics. Many investors fear that higher oil prices would increase the cost of transportation, leading to higher inflation and ultimately affecting the profitability of businesses.
