The banking crisis in the United States had an impact on the stock market on Monday and it fell on oil prices while it led to a rise in gold, which crossed the barrier of 1,900 dollars, in a day of extreme volatility as investors fled. They tried to ask for safer, higher-quality, dangerous protections.

The WTI barrel variety dropped 2.6% and closed at 74.70 dollars; while the Brent rate also fell by 2.6% and ended at $80.60, according to figures posted on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX).

The drop occurred in the first hours of business when investors fled variable risk and turned to safer ones, although some of them were able to recover losses when the plans of the US authorities to strengthen the banking system took care and prevent contagion.

The Federal Reserve, the Treasury Department and the Federal Deposit Insurance System were taking emergency action to bolster confidence in the banking system to prevent the failure of Silicon Valley Bank from causing contagion.
