The share of raw materials and financial assets that lost in price in 2018 reached a record value since 1920


According to Deutsche Bank, which tracks 70 different asset classes, 90% of commodity and financial assets have fallen in price at a record pace since 1920, when losses showed 84% of 37 assets, writes, referring to the message of The Wall Street Journal. Protective assets such as gold and government bonds, in the first 11 months of this year, reduced their value compared to 2017. Industrial metals, oil, stocks and bonds, as well as currencies of developing countries and major stock indexes in many countries showed the decline. Following the results of 2018, the world's largest management company, BlackRock, expects the first in the last 25 years simultaneous fall in stocks and bonds. This situation is caused by the US trade war with China, tensions between Russia and Western countries, the UK’s withdrawal from the EU and the tightening of the Fed’s monetary policy.
