Oil climbed over 1% higher on strong economic data that raised hopes for energy demand.

 

The U.S. dollar index and treasuries fell as the Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P climbed over 1% higher in early trade on much better than expected economic data before the major indices dipped to see slight losses midday on worries over the financials, but bonds and the dollar still ended lower as worries eased in afternoon trade and helped all threes indices close with modest gains on the day.

 

Among the big names making news in the market today were Humana, Ford, CIT Group, Bank of America, and Clorox.

 

The Commentary:

 

Dear CIGAs,

 

The so called quick surgical bankruptcy of CIT will result in a company that will only be able to provide 20% of its previous level of financial services to Middle America according to Friday’s Wall Street Journal.

 

Any institutions replacing these services will have:

 

1. Higher levels of credit worthiness to be met by small business.

 

2. Less funds committed to these loans.

 

Further, the assets of CIT in bankruptcy are the middle American loans outstanding that will be brutally attacked by the bankruptcy process.

 

That is going to result in a flood of middle American businesses declaring bankruptcy.”- Jim Sinclair, JSMineset.com
