Stocks Higher Ahead of FOMC

Author:   |    Publish date:


Stocks higher ahead of FOMC. US stocks continue making new highs as strong earnings keep money flowing into equities ahead of the FOMC meeting on Wednesday. Dow (+0.39%), Nasdaq (+0.34%), S&P (+0.37%) and Russell (+0.16%) all at their all time highs while flights to safety were noticed. 10Y yields ticked lower 1.54% as Dollar climbed back above the 94 handle.

In the commodities market, crude was little changed at $84/bl as markets await the EIA report that is expected to show a rise in supplies. Gold retreated from the $1,800/oz handle as the Dollar strengthened ahead of the Fed’s meeting. Elsewhere, iron ore dropped further to $96.12/tn as news hit the wires that the new US infrastructure stimulus might not be passed.

In the FX space, flight to safety was noticed in the short and medium term accounts as Yen was flipped to demand, alongside Swiss, Dollar and Euro. The comdolls trio were sent to the back burner alongside Sterling as long term investors stayed put. Markets look to ADP employment reports, factory orders and more earnings reports from Alibaba (BABA), Electronics Arts (EA), Humana (HUM), Marathon Oil (MRO) and MGM Resorts (MGM) to name a few. The FOMC meeting and EIA petroleum status will be in the spotlight Wednesday.
