The EUR continued to inch higher on Wednesday even in the face of economic data from Europe which shows Germany and France are facing difficult prospects for growth via the PMI results from the Manufacturing and Services sectors. The German Ifo Business Climate reading will be published today and its expected outcome is 108.7. Final GDP numbers will come from Germany tomorrow. But today and tomorrow will likely continue to be about risk appetite versus risk aversion and there can be little doubt that traders with a taste for risker assets the past week – meaning the EUR – have profited.
Gold climbed to new short term highs on Wednesday. As of this morning the precious metal is near 1777.00 USD. Gold has found a room full of risk takers the past week as the EUR has gained too. Gold like other commodities finds itself nearing the higher values of it midterm trading range.
Crude Oil held onto its gains Wednesday and remains perched near its loftier values. The U.S. will release Crude Oil Inventories results today, but the report’s result isn’t likely to have much impetus unless the numbers come in far removed from their estimates. Crude Oil has done remarkably well and has gotten a lift via the Iranian news and a broad market speculative flair.

The major indexes all declined on Wednesday. While the Existing Home Sales numbers missed their forecast yesterday it is unlikely that poor housing sector news roiled the markets. Housing in the States has been depressed for a long time now. Weekly Unemployment Claims results will be presented today. Tomorrow New Home Sales figures will be brought forth. The likely reason for the major indexes turning in poor results the past couple of sessions probably has more to do with profit taking and the notion by some that equities have too much value at this time.
