The EUR stayed under pressure on Wednesday showing that Tuesday’s results the day before were not a one off. In other words there are concerns that appear to now be coming to the front regarding the financial crisis of Europe, no matter how much E.U. officials want to cherry pick what they deem as appropriate information. In an interesting turn of events, the U.S. conducted another ‘Stress Test’ on the U.S. banking system recently using much tougher criteria than Europe has done. The results of the ‘Stress Test’ showed that the American banking system is much healthier for the time being than it counterparts across the Atlantic. CPI data came in as expected from the E.U. yesterday, and today the ECB Monthly Bulletin will be released. For the moment it appears that the EUR will continue to face tests.
Volatility ran through the Gold market on Wednesday as the precious metal fell amidst the gains being made by the USD versus the EUR. Gold is around 1647.00 USD as of this morning and it is starting to approach the lower realms of midterm range. Having faced a wave of pressure the past few trading sessions the question that will be asked is if the decline has been too fast?
Crude Oil dropped in value on Wednesday following the path of other physical resources. Economic data continues to be a large battle ground of debate with optimists versus skeptics. While the U.S. economy has shown some improvement, plenty of caution remains about its prospects. Thus questions about real demand for Crude Oil are fair. The counterweight as pointed out before is the political tension coming from the Persian Gulf area which is providing Crude Oil support.
S&P, NASDAQ, DOW
Wall Street was not able to sustain it gains from the previous day. Wednesday’s trading proved mixed at best and volume remains rather lackluster across the big boards. Plenty of data is on the schedule today including weekly Unemployment Claims, but key manufacturing indexes from the Federal Reserve will come from the New York and Philadelphia regions. While some data from the States has been better, other data remains skittish. Many investors who are attempting to look at long term prospects remain cautious.
