Risk appetite rose across the broad markets on Thursday and the EUR emerged near its higher values even as news continues to be debated regarding the Greece crisis. As of this morning reports espousing optimism about ‘a deal’ for Greece are making headlines. However when all the numbers are quantified skeptics are pointing out that the math does not add up and that Greece will still face severe hurdles in the coming months. German PPI data will be released today, but today’s trading for the EUR will be a battle between risk takers and skeptics.
Gold moved higher on Thursday following the bounce upwards by the EUR. The precious ****l as of this morning is around 1732.00 USD. Commodity prices in general were strong yesterday showing a taste for speculation. Gold is comfortably within a known range for the time being.
Crude Oil broke upwards towards its higher values on Thursday following the broad market optimism. While short term sentiment has certainly given Crude Oil a ride upwards, the fact is that the physical resource is touching the higher reaches of its value and that some traders may be tempted to attempt a range trade with the notion that headwinds might develop.

Equity markets in the U.S. are approaching almost four year highs. Yesterday’s gains were strong and complete across the major indexes. Optimism has certainly won recent battles. However plenty of investors continue sit out the recent rallies and remain on the sidelines. Volumes are low and the question is going to become if and when investors not participating will decide to enter the stock markets. Housing data from the States essentially met expectations on Thursday and the weekly Unemployment Claims and Philly Fed Manufacturing Index did turn in better numbers. The U.S. will release Core CPI results today and it should be noted that next Monday is a banking holiday in the States. For the time being many traders appear to believe the glass is half full.
