Friday was a big day regarding news from Greece and their debt swap with creditors. For the time being it appears that Greece has cleared the first hurdle regarding their Sovereign Debt crisis, but plenty of profound questions remain. The EUR traded slightly weaker on Friday and remains near the lower end of its short term high water marks. There is not a lot of data on the calendar for the E.U. today, but tomorrow the German ZEW Economic Sentiment report is due. The story for the EUR remains sentiment regarding the financial crisis and the manner in which E.U. officials handle ‘news events’ and try to guide confidence. Fundamentals remain ugly from Europe, and the question is how investors will view the long term for the continent.
Gold climbed a bit higher as Friday came to a close and remains near its very short term highs. As of this morning the precious metal is around 1708.00 USD. The story for Gold revolves around risk appetite from a speculative standpoint and a direct inverse correlation with the value of the USD.
Crude Oil has continued to see fairly cautious trading and has been in a rather consolidated pattern for nearly a week. Range traders may find opportunities within the commodity as plenty of give and take transpires in the market as the merits of the global economy are debated versus geopolitical risks – particularly via Iran.
S&P, NASDAQ, DOW
Wall Street had some gains across all the major indexes on Friday with a better than anticipated Non-Farm Employment Change number. But investors remain unconvinced seemingly by the ‘positive’ ground equities are achieving when measured via the amount of volume in the broad markets which remains light. The Federal Budget Balance will be presented today, but most of the numbers are already known. Tomorrow Core Retail Sales data and the FOMC Statement will be highlighted.
