The WTO says global trade will decrease this year by between 13% and 32%. The organization offers a wide range of forecasts because so much of the economic impact of this crisis is uncertain. At the peak of the financial crisis in 2009, trade dropped by only 12.5%.
"In an optimistic scenario, our economists see global commodity trade volume decrease by 13% this year compared to 2019. If the pandemic is not controlled and governments do not implement and coordinate effective policy responses, the reduction could be 32% - or more", said the WTO Director General.

Investment bank TD Securities also forecasts that gold price will increase to 1,800 USD/ounce in the near future and reach 2,000 USD/ounce by the end of this year, according to FX Empire.
