2020 has been an unpredictable ride through the pandemic, and many more difficulties that had made living life quite hard for people across the globe. But as we near the end of this year, we all should accept the fact that with every passing year, one should leave behind the bad memories and mistakes. So now, as we embrace the upcoming year, 2021, let us all be positive and cheery with shining spirits and aspirations for the future. We should vow to not let the negative times affect us in looking forward to the future and working hard to achieve our dreams and ambitions. So, let us all embrace the new year with much-needed hopes and happiness.

The appeal of safe haven assets to increase

Escalating tensions in Israel often lead to investors seeking refuge in safe-haven assets.
This is because they closely monitor Middle East events for potential geopolitical risks that could impact financial markets.
These safe haven assets, like gold and government bonds, are considered low-risk and can provide a buffer against market volatility during uncertain times.
Institutional investors, such as hedge funds and central banks, also tend to diversify into these assets for risk management.
The impact goes beyond asset allocation, affecting market sentiment and volatility as investors react to developments in the region.
This underscores the interconnectedness of geopolitics and financial markets, prompting investors to adjust their strategies accordingly.

Challenging The G7

BRICS plus nations in the Global South could represent a sea change in the West's global institutions.
The West has traditionally dominated global groupings of leaders, most notably the G8, which included Russia until 2014 and is now the G7.
That is an inter-governmental political forum consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States, with the European Union is a 'non-enumerated member'.
Russia is ready to develop a global reserve currency together with China and other members of the BRICS group of nations.
It could be based on a basket of currencies from the organization's members.
One possibility is that the BRICS basket currency could attract the reserves not just of the group's members, but also countries already in their range of influence.
These include nations in South Asia and the Middle East.

An Asian Bretton Woods is suggested

An Asian Bretton Woods may be on the way.
Sergei Glazyev, a senior Russian economist and Minister in charge of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EAEU), was leading a committee planning a new trade currency for the Eurasian Economic Union.
At the same time, the new trade settlement currency was to be available to any other nation in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation and the expanding BRICS membership.
Logic suggests that a gold-backed currency will be the outcome of Glazyev's EAEU committee's trade currency deliberations after all, because of a subsequent announcement from Moscow concerning a new Russian bullion market.
