US100

    • 9.38amW1
    • High11479
    • Low11446
    • Close11465

US100 is trading at 11461.3, 0.07% down since previous close. The U.S markets slid down on Thursday after U.S issued soft Retail Sales data which fell by 1.1% weaker than -0.8% as expected. This indicates slowing economic growth in U.S. However, the scenario was altogether different till previous session wherein an index was trading at higher levels on rising chances of smaller interest rate hikes in near future as U.S CPI data showed a progress in inflationary concern. Besides this, the better U.S Non-farm Payroll data & the positive chances of easing down restrictions in China surged up global markets. The result of Jobless Claims & Housing Starts data will remain in focus for the day. Wait & watch strategy may be build up for the day in US100.

WTI OIL

    • 10.05amD1
    • High82.37
    • Low78.9
    • Close79.43

WTI Oil is trading at $78.58, 0.06% down since previous day close. The Oil prices retreated on Thursday post release of U.S American Petroleum Institute (API) report which showed a rise in Oil stocks level by 7.615 mbpd against the expected fall of 1.75 mbpd. Globally, the U.S issued weaker than expected Retail Sales data which weakened the market sentiments. Earlier, the soft USD on account of rising chances of smaller rate hikes in Fed’s next meeting led buying bias in Crude Oil. The Saudi Arabia cuts down the Oil selling prices to Asia & Europe which cushioned the prices. The result of U.S EIA report will be closely monitored for the day. Slight selling bias may be established for the day in WTI Oil.
