The world’s economies will shrink faster and farther this year than at any time experienced since the Great Depression in 1930. The International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) April 2020 World Economic Report begins its dismal report by stating:
“The COVID-19 pandemic is inflicting high and rising human costs worldwide, and the necessary protection measures are severely impacting economic activity. As a result of the pandemic, the global economy is projected to contract sharply by –3 percent in 2020, much worse than during the 2008–09 financial crisis.
The Great Lockdown will experience the worst recession since the Great Depression.
In a baseline scenario, which assumes that the pandemic fades in the second half of 2020 and containment efforts can be gradually unwound—the global economy is projected to grow by 5.8 percent in 2021 as economic activity normalizes, helped by policy support. The risks for even more severe outcomes, however, are substantial.
Effective policies are essential to forestall the possibility of worse outcomes, and the necessary measures to reduce contagion and protect lives are an important investment in long-term human and economic health.
Because the economic fallout is acute in specific sectors, policymakers will need to implement substantial targeted fiscal, monetary, and financial market measures to support affected households and businesses domestically.
And internationally, strong multilateral cooperation is essential to overcome the effects of the pandemic, including to help financially constrained countries facing twin health and funding shocks, and for channeling aid to countries with weak health care systems”.
In what she calls the“Great Lockdown,” IMF’s Chief Economist, Gita Gopinath stated, “It is very likely that this year the global economy will experience its worst recession since the Great Depression, surpassing that seen during the global financial crisis a decade ago”.
She went on to describe the current Covid-19 driven crises as a great lockdown and recently told reporters that “this is a crisis like no other.” She expects the total cost to global GDP to be $9 trillion in 2020 alone.”
The unprecedented worldwide impact from Covid-19 has caused substantial economic devastation and no one knows when it might end or what the final economic tally might be.
The IMF has warned of an expected 13% – 32% contraction in global economic output which they expect to be felt for a long time. The IMF’s published economic growth perceptions are listed below:
In addition to IMF’s worrisome projections, Goldman Sachs also projects a 35% contraction of global economies in Q2 of 2020.
Despite promising signals of economic expansion starting in China (where the virus seems to have peaked), Goldman Sachs believes the worst is yet to come, especially if countries lift isolation and relax social distancing guidelines.
The firm’s economist Jan Hatzius, said, “The improvement is probably a direct consequence of social distancing and the plunge in economic activity and could reverse quickly if people just went back to work.”
The good thing for those who enjoy Wiseinvest’s AI is that they don’t need to spend too much time worrying about what may happen to individual country or global economies or how that might affect currency prices.
The AI already has all this stuff factored into its algorithm which makes it much easier to profit from Forex without spending hour upon hour doing research or trying to understand how this number or GDP report might have affected the currency pair.

What is the performance of the AI in forex trading?
The Win Rate of our AI varies and can reach up to 95%. Our performance is based on an efficient frontier, which means that our model is profitable whenever the Win Rate is greater than 60%. Our strategies seek stable returns and sufficient results to achieve an average return of 40% per year (APY), without the application of high leverage.
We know that what matters in forex trading is the final result. Therefore, the investor needs to note that Win Rate is not always the best metric, as other signal providers disclose. For example, out of 100 trades, only 1 trade may be enough loss to make the 99 trades not profitable. In this case, the Win Rate would be 99%, but the final result would be unfeasible (negative). Therefore, we focus on the return of 40% of APY and not just on Win Rate.
It is essential to observe that forex brokers may charge spreads, commissions, and overnight fees. These factors can affect the AI performance. You can check our forex trading track record by clicking here.
How much do I need to trade forex with AI?
You can start in forex trading with free AI signals or an AI trading account and deposit just $1 in the broker. You can also test using a risk-free practice account with our AI trading system. However, to do efficient risk management in real accounts, we suggest you start from at least $100. Notice that some forex brokers require different initial deposits to trade forex.
What is the trading strategy of our AI?
Our AI analyzes those fundamental, technical, and sentiment factors that affect forex trading, and all criteria are evaluated in real-time using different weights. After completing the analysis, the choice of the signal emission strategy is made considering the increased likelihood of short-term profit and the amount available for investment.
Using technical analysis, our algorithm considers not only the patterns of various trends, including support and resistance levels and cross-indicators, but our AI is also able to create its own real-time index for each currency pair, that is used to identify what is the best direction and target.
About fundamental analysis in forex, the AI makes a correlation within the economic calendar to find news data that can affect specific currency pairs.
