A Mutated Covid Variant Appears in South Africa

Health authorities have revealed that there is a new mutated variant of the Coronavirus. The mutated Covid-19 appeared in South Africa, and the World Health Organization is set to discuss it soon.

The emergence of the new variant has led the global financial markets to be negatively affected. The stock, crypto and commodities markets have been trading in the red zone over the past few hours.

Despite that, some stocks have been rallying following the news of the mutated Covid variant. The shares of Zoom, the video communications company, is up by more than 5% since the US market opened a few hours ago. Zoom was one of the biggest beneficiaries during the lockdown as companies moved their operations abroad and they used its services to carry out video meetings.

Zoom Could Rally Higher if Lockdowns are Reinstated in Several Countries

Zoom’s RSI of 34 is an improvement of the oversold region it was a few days ago, and it could rally towards 50 over the coming days. The MACD line is still below the neutral zone, thanks to Zoom’s poor performance in recent weeks.

However, the stock price could rally higher over the coming weeks and months if the current global condition persists. Year-to-date, Zoom’s stock price has dipped by more than 33%. However, the company could recover its losses if more countries reintroduce lockdowns and companies are forced to work from home again.
