Earnings week is continuing, but this morning most futures boards are red. The Emini S&P ($ESZ7), Gold ($GCZ7) and Crude Oil ($CLZ7) are all lower on the day. Even with equities down, bond futures are also trading lower - with the U.S. Treasury Bond ($ZBZ7) down more than a full handle. Only the Euro ($6EZ7) is higher - and that's just by a meager 0.03%.
As we look to find opportunities in the trading day, we should remember that Crude Oil inventories come out at 9:30 AM CT. In addition, if you are trading equity futures, be sure to close out positions by 3 PM CT so as to avoid being impacted by any after-hour earnings.
With that said, here's how Senior Performance Coach John Hoagland will be analyzing the markets today.
