A glitch delayed CME trading last night for four hours.

8.25.2014

Top Day Market News

A glitch delayed CME trading last night for four hours. Just new home sales today. Copper has been supported by falling stock piles. Let’s see if the new home sales number can offer this market additional support. The dollar is at an 11 month high. Mario Draghi is edging towards quantitative easing as deflationary pressures express themselves in Europe. Gold is at a two month low on a stronger dollar and falling rates. Stocks are overbought. The speed line of ascent in the Nasdaq is too steep.
