Oil Slides While Gold Heads to $1,700 as Virus Rocks Commodities
(Bloomberg) -- Renewed fears that the coronavirus will harm global growth rocked commodity markets again on Monday, with oil and metals prices tumbling while gold soared toward $1,700 an ounce amid a global flight to haven assets.As the deadly virus spreads more widely outside China, raising the threat of a global pandemic, finance chiefs and central bankers from the world's largest economies said they see downside risks to the world economy persisting.That's spurring fresh alarm in commodity markets that had started to recover from lows hit earlier in the month when China's virtual shutdown threw supply chains into chaos. With the International Monetary Fund cutting its global growth forecast and warning that it's also looking at more "dire" scenarios, investors are concerned that risks to raw material demand are worsening."With the volatility we're seeing in the coronavirus event, that's creating angst in the market on the back of growth and demand expectations and we've seen oil prices weaken," said David Lennox, a resource analyst at Fat Prophets in Sydney. "The converse of that is the same event is carrying investors toward a safe haven play and that's gold."Oil led the losses in Asian trade on Monday morning, tumbling more than 3% in London and New York. Until Friday, Brent crude had been in the longest run of gains in more than a year thanks to Chinese fiscal stimulus and new threats to supplies from Africa and Latin America.Industrial commodities are also getting hit hard, with copper sliding m

As Pandemic Looms, World's Top Disease Fighter Engages Xi
(Bloomberg) -- Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has perhaps the most thankless job in global public health. As director-general of the World Health Organization, the former Ethiopian health minister is racing against time to prevent a dangerous new coronavirus in China from precipitating a worldwide pandemic.Yet containing and unlocking the secrets of a novel virus that emerged in Wuhan, once a flourishing mega-city of 11 million, is only part of the challenge. Tedros is also engaged in a delicate diplomatic dance with a Chinese government that's sensitive to perceived slights and a big financial supporter of countries across Africa, including Ethiopia, where he also served as foreign minister and a high-ranking member of its former ruling coalition.Tedros needs the support of China's all-powerful President Xi Jinping to increase on-the-ground access for the world's best infectious disease experts. Xi, meanwhile, is facing public anger over his government's handling of the crisis and has bristled at foreign criticism.As the world's first responder to public health crises, Tedros must "strike this complicated balance between being a member-state organization and being this evidence-based beacon on a hill," said Rebecca Katz, director of Georgetown University's Center for Global Health Science and Security. "It's not a job that I would want to do."The viral disease, known as Covid-19, has killed more than 2,400 people and reached four continents in less than two months. On Jan. 30, Tedros, after initially hesitating, d

Takeaways from 2020 Warren Buffett Shareholder Letter
(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Investors looking for an angle on the coronavirus crisis have naturally landed upon the online education sector in the hopes that tens of millions of quarantined school kids will turn such providers into profit-making machines on par with China's hottest internet companies.Almost every mainland province and city has pushed back the starting date of the spring term by weeks. Most students haven't seen the inside of a classroom since Lunar New Year in late January. Not wanting to be left behind, students, their schools and parents have turned to online alternatives, including options not offered by traditional education businesses.Giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., for example, added 100,000 servers to support its free DingTalk messenger, which is being used across the country to help pupils communicate with teachers and watch online classes. A similar tale is told at WeChat provider Tencent Holdings Ltd.Even San Fransciso-based Seesaw Learning Inc., developer of an early-childhood learning and communication app with less than 10% of revenue from China, saw a 31% jump in traffic from there and 21% from Hong Kong. Co-founder Adrian Graham admits it's hard to tell whether that spike is due to normal post-new year usage increases or the impact of quarantined kids at the mostly international schools in the Greater China region that use the product.As a result, this could be the biggest sustained, mass experiment in online education since the internet was founded in the 1980s. But for those who specialize in educatio

The Australian Dollar Nears a Tipping Point Thanks to Ultra-Low Rates
(Bloomberg) -- A decade-long slide in Australian interest rates is threatening to turn one of the global currency market's most popular wagers on its head.Investors with an appetite for a little risk had a winner for years with a carry trade that saw them borrow trillions of yen at near-zero rates and use the money to buy Australian dollars. Holding onto the Aussie for as little as a few weeks could earn them enough interest to make the trade pay. Those brave enough to stick with it for months or more made huge profits.Not anymore.Foreign exchange traders are starting to look Down Under as a place to source cheap funds, not somewhere to invest them. It's quite a snub for a nation in its 29th year of economic expansion, and comes as policy makers struggle to counter the financial impact of drought, wildfires and the coronavirus."If you'd told me five years ago that the Aussie would become a nice funding currency, I'd have been laughing at the absurdity of the idea," said Shaun Roache, chief Asia-Pacific economist at S&P Global Ratings in Singapore. "It's a remarkable shift in mindset for markets."It's a far cry from the heyday of the currency in 2011, when much of the developed world was still clawing its way back from the global financial crisis. Australia had skirted recession, the local dollar was worth more than its U.S. namesake and the central bank's benchmark rate was a healthy 4.75%.It's now a record-low 0.75%, and tipped to go lower.While loans in yen and euros are still
