Oil rose another 7% and the U.S. dollar dropped markedly as the euro climbed higher on easing concerns surrounding Greece's debt load.
Treasuries fell as the Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P gained over 1% on relief over Europe and the oil market.
Among the big names making news in the market today were JPMorgan, Dunkin’ Donuts, UPS, and S&P.
“U.S. Stock Market – Big up and down swings may be the new norm, but it also suggests that the long-term uptrend is coming to an end. 2015 screams caution on several fronts, including U.S. general equities.
U.S. Bonds – While I wouldn’t touch high-yield corporates (junk bonds) with a 10-foot pole, it’s getting to the point where the 10yr. and 30yr. Treasuries are becoming too irresistible not to short.
U.S. Dollar – While hoping the Euro would get to parity, the U.S. Dollar is severely overbought. I don’t trade foreign currencies but if I did, I would be looking to go short the dollar on several fronts, including against the Canadian dollar.
Gold – It did run into resistance at $1,300. The Daily chart shows it was overbought at that point and now going through the customary test of former resistance (seen here on the 200-Day M.A.). Providing that retest is successful and we get above $1,300, the next real area of long-term resistance can be seen on the weekly at $1,400. I do think $1,400 is a question of when not if, but I too thought Seattle was going to run and win the Super Bowl on their last play so seeing shall be believing on $1,400 gold.
Oil and Base Metals – Gold was the first to break, then oil and base metals. If the U.S. Dollar has indeed run its course, oil and base metals are likely to be in the earliest stage of base-building. As each day passes and a new low is not achieved, one can get closer to waving the “all-clear” flag. But past history says lets hold on to it for a little while longer.” - Peter Grandich, http://moneytalks.net/peters-content.html
