As Bloomberg details, the historic oil-market collapse that’s dragging down shares of the biggest Western explorers is swelling yields on investor payouts.

Finally, Bloomberg notes that investors are piling into gold day-after-day as concerns escalate about the impact of the coronavirus, markets gyrate, and rate-cut expectations jump.

The tally stands at a fresh record, and year-to-date inflows already total more than half of the 323.4 tons added in 2019.
