Gold lost momentum overnight.

 

08-13-2013

Top Day Market News

Retail sales at 8:30 will move the markets today. Meanwhile, the Yen is lower as Japan is considering corporate tax cuts to boost their economy. Gold lost momentum overnight as the recent rally has demised demand. Grains are higher in the wake of the grain report. German investment confidence was better than expected. Again, the problem with US equities is the difference between the price and its 200 day moving average.
