Crude oil market soars over $3 dollars and Gold up $30 dollars on potential military action against Syria.

08-27-2013

Top Day Market News

Intimations of a US response to the situation in Syria took the wind out of the stock market going into the close. This also put a bid into the metals. Oil was higher overnight but not as much as you’d think given the possibility of supply disruptions. Aussie dollar was lower on increased volatility. Volume was extremely light and this hurts momentum traders. Market is hanging on German confidence numbers.
