Most of the global shares tanked yesterday. However, the hope returns for another visit adding to the uptrends. Some European Stocks were observed hawkish. Trader and investors are becoming savvy amid the global uncertainties, adopting a path which avoids shares which could fall directly between the US-China trade war. A look at some of the “usual suspects” suggests the following
- Germany 30: By the time of print had not regained upward momentum, down 0.20% at 11,214.8 trading from 11,157.0 and hopes to rise to 11,231.8 the current resistance level.
- Italy 40: Was seen up 0.08% at 19,615.00 coming from an open value of 19,575.00 it fell momentarily to 19,547.50 before climbing with an aim to cross 19,642.50 or park near it.
- UK100: Has been seen bullish all morning. Since the UK market opened. Ahead of the parliamentary vote and by the time of print 10:30 GMT it had surged 1.48% trading between 6,677.4 – 6,792.00 at 6,789.2
- US30: Was spotted gaining wings, trading up between 24,350.0 – 24,484.00 However, it was als
o seen losing some stea m around 24,478 by the US open the expectation is perhaps trading sideways around 24,470.00 & 24,474 any listing s that render s support wil l pu t the DJIA back into th e driver’ s seat. Although, President Trump, keeping the shutdown sizzling is weighing on Wall street.
The commodities arena is set to witness a small degree of correction. Back into the lime light.
- Oil: WTI was up 0.88% at 52.45 trading in a range from 51.84 – 52.59 ahead of the day’s API Crude Oil weekly stockpiles. With US imposed, sanctions on Venezuela and Iran beginning to crack under the constant push and shove.

It should not come as a surprise to see the major currencies rallying against the USD only to shed gains then embark on it again the capriciousness is based is partly due to a substantial amount of trader poised to take advantage of any panic out bursts.
- EUR/USD: The pair is likely going to be driving by the effects or side effects to the GBP. By the time of print they were trading from 1.1418 – 1.1451.
- GBP/USD: Meanwhile, this pair is political charged and volatile trading in and out of gains between1.3131 – 1.3177 with an eye on the tipping points to the extreme following the parliamentary vote.
