Effect of the Russia/Ukraine Crisis on Stocks, Oil and Markets | Letter Midas RAW ft $NGC $CWRK


Stocks tumble on Friday on lingering concerns over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The Russian-Ukrainian crisis negates any chance of good news from a strong US payrolls report.

Hiring across the United States increased last month as the economy recovers from a labor downturn caused by COVID-19 and its variants. The US economy created 678,000 jobs in February. That’s an increase of 200,000 from the previous month and analysts’ forecasts.

Oil prices rose as the crisis in Eastern Europe escalated, provoking Ukraine, with the latest news sparking a fire at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant. Russia, of course, is a major oil producer in the world.

Midas Letter is here to try to make sense of the geopolitical crisis in terms of financial impact and to predict the effects on markets, stocks and the possible rise in oil prices.

There are two exclusive on-deck interviews in this week’s episode.
