MARKET COMMENTS
Mar E-mini S&Ps (ESH15 +0.51%) this morning are up +10.00 points (+0.50%). The S&P 500 index on Wednesday fell to a 1-1/2 week low and closed lower: S&P 500 -1.35%, Dow Jones -1.13%, Nasdaq -0.60%. Bearish factors included (1) carry-over weakness from a slide in European stocks on concern that Greece’s new government may default on its international debts if it abandons agreements made by the prior Greek administration, and (2) weakness in energy producers after crude oil sold off. Bullish factors included (1) early strength in technology stocks on better-than-expected earnings results from Apple, and (2) the post-FOMC meeting statement where the Fed pledged to remain “patient” on raising interest rates.
Mar 10-year T-notes (ZNH15 -0.18%) this morning are down -6 ticks. Mar 10-year T-note futures prices on Wednesday posted a 1-1/2 week high and closed higher. Closes: TYH5 +26.00, FVH5 +14.75. Bullish factors included (1) the post-FOMC meeting statement where the Fed maintained its pledge to be “patient” on raising interest rates, and (2) increased safe-haven demand for T-notes as stocks declined.
The dollar index (DXY00 +0.13%) this morning is up +0.096 (+0.10%). EUR/USD (^EURUSD) is up +0.0027 (+0.24%). USD/JPY (^USDJPY) is up +0.53 (+0.45%). The dollar index on Wednesday closed higher: Dollar index +0.445 (+0.47%), EUR/USD -0.00932 (-0.82%), USD/JPY -0.3458 (-0.29%). Bullish factors included (1) Greek sovereign debt concerns that weighed on EUR/USD, and (2) the Fed’s post-FOMC statement that said the economy is “expanding at a solid pace,” which bolstered speculation the Fed will raise interest rates later this year.
Mar WTI crude oil (CLH15 +0.11%) this morning is down -2 cents (-0.04%) and Mar gasoline (RBH15 +0.65%) is up +0.0059 (+0.43%). Mar crude oil and Mar gasoline on Wednesday settled mixed: CLH5 -1.78 (-3.85%), RBH5 -0.0006 (-0.04%). Bearish factors that sent Mar crude down to a 5-3/4 year low included (1) the +8.87 million bbl surge in weekly EIA crude inventories to 406.7 million bbl, twice as much as expectations of +4.0 million bbl and the highest since 1931, (2) the +2.09 million bbl increase in crude supplies at Cushing, OK, delivery point of WTI futures, to an 11-1/2 month high of 38.9 million bbl, and (3) the +0.3% w/w increase in U.S. crude production in the week ended Jan 23 to 9.213 million bpd, the highest in over 40 years.
