- March 20th, 2020

In case you missed it, here is this week’s resource big news roundup.

Oil prices surged and energy stocks rallied slightly on Friday after a week driven by coronavirus concerns held the markets down to start the week. Driven by energy stocks, the TSX Composite jumped 462 points Friday morning to hit 12632. The bounceback in oil prices follows a brutal month for the commodity after Russia refused to join OPEC in cutting output and Saudi Arabia shared plans to produce 10 million barrels of oil per day while offering discounts to win new customers. The TSX Venture jumped 9.73 points Friday morning to hit 363.40 with seven of the 12 Toronto subgroups in the black.

According to Greg Taylor, Chief investment officer of Purpose Investments, the combination of the coronavirus and the oil production news caused an overcorrection in the oil market. “It got aggressively sold down so much yesterday that it had to bounce back some,” he told Yahoo Finance. “I think most of the bounce today is more optimism on the supply side, that potentially the Saudis could figure out that they are destroying the market through this and they’re hurting themselves.”
