Понедельник... Америка проснулась... Америка встрепенулась...

Мдя. Печально, но пора вспомнить про метку crisis.

S&P 500 was down 7%, briefly halting trading. A price war for oil and the economic fallout from the coronavirus outbreak led investors to flee stocks, with the Dow falling around 2,000 points at one time.

Давеча со студентами обсуждал: может ли коронавирус быть причиной затяжного экономического кризиса?
Нефтяные дела, ессно, нами в расчёт не принимались.
Не вовремя все эти нефтяные заморочки начались. Хотя... трудно понять, было ли у сторон пространство для манёвра... Весьма вероятно, нефтяной тупик возник как следствие вирусных событий.
Продолжим наблюдения...
В кармашек дневника -- мессидж от Bloomberg:

OPEC and Russia have started an oil price war that could push crude into the $20s, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc.
Brent crude may dip as low as $20 a barrel, testing the levels at which some producers can operate, analysts including Damien Courvalin wrote in a report. The move completely changes the outlook for oil and gas markets, the bank said, as it slashed its forecasts for the second and third quarters to $30 a barrel.
“We believe the OPEC and Russia oil price war unequivocally started this weekend,” the analysts said. “The prognosis for the oil market is even more dire than in November 2014, when such a price war last started, as it comes to a head with the significant collapse in oil demand due to the coronavirus.”
