During the pandemic we noticed one drop in the labour market that most people expected that no one was truly ready for it. The drop of the oil price. It was indeed a massive drop and unfortunately, that actually had a great effect on the revenue of a lot of countries.
The prices dropped
At the moment, the massive centres for oil mining across Latin America. During the pandemic and of course, during the worldwide quarantine, the prices dropped all the way down to hundred and 20% in some countries which is a very, very big percentage.
A lot of investors actually started selling their stocks and withdrawing their high interest investment fund seeing as, at the time the results of the pandemic were actually very, very difficult to say. However, we noticed that now things are actually changing.
A surge is now happening
In particular, at the moment we see a massive surge of the oil price which actually has led to the currencies of Latin America to increase in value as well. Basically, as the oil increased in value so will the currencies.
Exactly what does that mean for the Latin American countries? Well, the answer is actually quite simple. When the prices increasing it means that, revenues will increase as well. The economy of those countries will get better which will also mean that, more job positions are going to open up.
Now, a lot of people will claim that, the increase of the price of oil will not actually benefit the countries but it will only benefit the investors and they are right up to a certain point. Investors need people to work for them and seeing as, the prices are going out, they will have no alternative but to actually increase wages and salaries.
Now, it is true that it will take a few months if not couple of years for this entire process to be completed. At some point, the pandemic is going to be over and eventually, the oil price will get back to normal.
Massive investment funds are being given
Oil always has been and always will be a great investment plan for old and new investors. With the increase of the price at the moment, this might be the right time for a lot of new investors to get into the game. This could be a great opportunity for you and your investment ventures.
