Investing with certificates in times of corona crisis

Certificates tips for the current market environment (07.04.2020)

Over the last few trading days stock markets have calmed and even some positive trends have emerged. Mainly responsible for such movements were central banks and governments that took numerous measures as crisis management tools at breathtaking speed to avoid panic and liquidity shortages in companies, with the aim of minimizing a sustained damage to the economy.

For further global economic as well as the stock market development, it will be essential that economies and businesses gradually return to normal working conditions. A decrease in the number of new infections and economically more gentle counter strategies have the potential to turn the stock market sentiment back to positive. Clearly the crisis is not over yet, and the final market impact remains to be seen.
 
Current market environment gives room for investment opportunities with attractive returns: in addition to subscription products, the focus is also on the secondary market products. Our experts have compiled a selection of interesting certificates available on secondary market. To conduct your own product search you may also use our innovative Certificates Finder.


Tip: When choosing a certificate on secondary market pay close attention to the barrier level and the type of barrier observation. Some products will have continuous barrier observation, whereas some will have barrier observation only on final observation date. And remember, the higher the potential return, the higher risk associated with the investment.
