Back to markets.

Last night, U.S. stocks rallied to an all-time high, while Treasuries slumped on speculation efforts will succeed at minimizing the economic impact from the coronavirus. Crude oil rallied after tumbling into a bear market.

The S&P 500 Index’s three-day gain topped 3%, and the Nasdaq indexes added to records. Risk sentiment got a boost overnight after a string of reports on possible vaccines, but the World Health Organization later said there are no proven therapeutics. Treasuries retreated, sending 10-year yields above 1.64%, even as more quarantines were announced in an effort to control the virus. Energy producers surged as crude rallied the most in almost a month on the prospect of OPEC output cuts.

Havens including the yen and Swiss franc slipped. The dollar rose, with data showing U.S. firms added more jobs than economists’ forecasts in January. Copper jumped 1.7%.

U.S. stocks continued their torrid rebound from the virus-fomented sell-off as optimism mounted that the spread will be contained and more central banks signaled a willingness to act if the virus undermines demand, inflation and financial markets. Better-than-forecast corporate earnings also continued boost equities.

The SPI is up 53 points this morning.

Closer to Home

With vanadium extraction of up to 95.5 per cent in the bag, Australian Vanadium is now carrying out pyrometallurgical testwork for its definitive feasibility study (DFS).

Laboratory testwork carried out to simulate the industry standard Grate Kiln process had resulted in improved vanadium extraction averaging about 92 per cent compared to traditional rotary kiln extraction of between 85 to 88 per cent.

Australian Vanadium (ASX:AVL) said this was achieved by pelletising concentrate produced by preliminary beneficiation from its namesake project near Meekatharra, Western Australia.

This concentrate was then subject to oxidative salt roasting to simulate a commercial straight Grate Kiln, which has a track record in the iron ore, titanium and steel industries.

The company said that pellet processing using this process had the advantages of higher reaction progress, greatly reduced kiln build up, significant reduction in dust loss and ease of process control and heat recovery.
