Archegos Capital, the hedge fund owned by Bill Hwang (formerly of Tiger Management), is at the centre of attention in the financial world following a 'fire sale' on Friday; the forced liquidation of positions due to margin calls and the need to free up funds to meet these repayment obligations.

A host of economic issues has added further uncertainty for the global economy in the past few days. Both geopolitical concerns as well as the ongoing coronavirus pandemic have served to give gold a small boost following its recent price pressure.

Having fallen as low as £1,213.79 per ounce earlier this month, gold has been making gradual gains since, and is now up just over 4% and trading at around £1,260 per ounce today.

Chinese officials have aired their concerns over the stock market bubble in America and Europe, cautioning against over-commitment to stocks and shares for fear of a market collapse.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak has pledged billions more in support for businesses and individuals in another pandemic-focused UK Budget.

As is common in recent years, many of the measures were announced prior to the official statement, and confirm that financial support will continue for several months as the UK, hopefully, eases restrictions after a year of the Covid-19 pandemic.
