Author:   |    Publish date:


Stocks mixed as big tech disappoints US stocks closed mixed on Wednesday after disappointing earnings from big tech Microsoft (MSFT) and Alphabet (GOOGL) that dragged Nasdaq (-2.04%) sharply lower. Following suit was S&P (-0.74%) but Russell (+0.46%) and Dow (-0.01%) managed to eke minor gains amid flight to bond safety that sent yields lower across the board. The 10Y benchmark fell to 4.01% as the Dollar was sold off near the 109.50 minor handle.

In the commodity markets, crude oil jumped higher after Saudi warned that dwindling emergency reserves would force markets to recalibrate on demand and supply. The black gold settled around $87.90/bl as New York closed. Dollar weakness continues to push gold above $1,674.85/oz before short term profit taking settles the precious metal lower around $1,664.40/oz. Elsewhere, global recession fears continue to plague iron ore as the commodity dragged lower to $93.55/tn.

In the FX space, short term traders were quick to bid the oversold Yen alongside Sterling and Kiwi as Swiss, Dollar and Loonie were sent to offers. Sterling and Euro continue to reign in the medium and long term accounts as Yen and Swiss remained in offers. Sentiments were mixed.

On Thursday, markets expect to remain cautious as investors shift focus to the jobless claims number, durable goods order and the GDP to gauge the health of the US economy and Fed’s plan for rate hikes. Earnings to watch include Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Mastercard (MA), Merck (MRK), McDonalds (MCD), T-Mobile (TMUS), Intel (INTC), Caterpillar (CAT), Gilead Sciences (GILD) and American Tower (AMT).

OUR PICK – No New Pick

We stay focused on open exposures. With seven stocks, AUD/CHF and Crude Oil still at play, we decided to stay focused on our open exposure for now. EUR/GBP has stopped out.
