Oil rose on an increased demand estimate from the IEA.


The U.S. dollar index fell as the yen climbed higher on safe haven buying.


Treasuries found modest gains as the Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P traded mostly lower on worries about Ukraine.


Among the big names making news in the market Friday were BofA, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Aeropostale, General Mills, Sony, AIG, Xapo, BP, and Facebook.


The Commentary:


“I have made no secret of the fact that I am most concerned about a wave of credit/debt issues coming to China sooner rather than later. As a matter of fact, Dr. Copper has been accurately forecasting this for longer than many of the so-called expert analysts.


While I view this development as a deflationary force globally, which should pressure certain key commodity markets, it also seems to be one of the factors bringing some safe haven buying into the gold market at the current time.


My own view is that if there were another deflationary wave that might threaten to engulf the world economy again, gold would struggle in such an environment. This view is based off of what happened to the metal during the outbreak of the credit crisis here in the US in the summer of 2008.


However, back then the Dollar was the recipient of strong safe haven flows. Thus far we are not seeing that and that is why gold continues to remain resilient in the face of these deflationary news. For now, gold is benefitting from nervous equity investors seeking a safe haven from unsettling winds that are buffeting the global economy.
