There will be little data brought forward today and some investors will be questioning the relative high values of the EUR as the day progresses. The IMF has told the E.U. that it needs to put more of its own money into the IMF emergency funds, the U.S. has told the E.U. that it needs to create a strong firewall to prevent contagion, and Greece is certainly not out of the woods – and so far Europe has not come up with a good answer. However, the Single Currency has continued to mount a strong fight and has managed to hold onto – thus far – its gains against the USD. The German GfK Consumer Climate reading will be tomorrow, but the real story is the ‘confidence game’ that the E.U. has been able to achieve the past couple of weeks.
Gold is slightly lower in Monday morning trading, following early morning losses by the EUR. Except, when looked upon over the past few weeks the precious metal has done quite well and is still well within its higher values. This morning Gold is around 1770.00 USD and it is an open secret that Gold has nearly mirrored the rise in the EUR. The key barometer for Gold is the EUR/USD – simple as that for short term traders.
Crude Oil has traded slightly lower in early trading this morning. But Crude Oil like Gold finds itself at highs and testing the patience of skeptics who continue to question ‘relative values’ in many of the broad markets. Crude Oil is certainly being affected by sentiment generating around the Iranian situation. However there are many other possibilities that could bring on volatility including any sudden perception that Europe will fail to live up to its responsibilities economically.

The major indexes on Wall Street turned in flat results on Friday closing the week with quite a bit of caution. Some investors are looking at the higher values among the indexes and showing signs of doubt. New Home Sales numbers came in slightly better on Friday, today Pending Home Sales figures will be released. Tomorrow Durable Goods Orders are on the calendar. The broad markets globally are being driven largely by sentiment and investors are showing signs of nervousness at these higher levels among the indexes. This week should prove interesting for all traders.
