September E-mini S&Ps (ESU15 +0.01%) are little changed, up +0.02%. The upside in stocks overnight was limited by a 5% decline in IBM after it reported late yesterday after the markets closed that its sales in Q2 declined for a thirteenth quarter. European stocks are down -0.02%, led by a fall in drug maker stocks as Novartis AG slipped 2% after it reported a decline in Q2 earnings. Asian stocks closed mostly higher: Japan +0.93%, Hong Kong +0.52%, China +0.64%, Taiwan +0.34%, Australia +0.35%, Singapore -0.06%, South Korea +0.58%, India -0.84%. Japan’s Nikkei Stock Index posted a 3-week high and was led higher by a rally in exporters after the yen fell to a 5-week low against the dollar. China’s Shanghai Composite rose to a 2-week high, although 543 companies remained suspended from trading due to trading curbs, down from 576 at the close of trading on Monday.

Commodity prices are mixed. Sep crude oil (CLU15 unch) is down -0.02% at a 3-1/2 month low on concern the global oil glut will persist after Iran’s oil minister said Iran plans to bolster crude production once sanctions are removed regardless of the impact on prices. Sep gasoline (RBU15 -0.97%) is down -1.08%. Metals prices are mixed. Aug gold (GCQ15 +0.05%) is down -0.12%. Sep copper (HGU15 +0.73%) is up +0.91%. Agricultural prices are higher.

Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said that once sanctions are removed Iran wants to pump 4 million bpd within seven months and 4.7 million bpd as soon as possible after that. Zanganeh said “our only responsibility here is attaining our lost share of the market, not protecting prices.” Iran’s oil exports declined to 1.4 million bpd on average last year due to sanctions, well below the 2.6 million bpd average exports in 2011, before sanctions were imposed. Iran is in talks with OPEC now and said it wants to boost oil exports by 500,000 bpd 3 to 4 months after sanctions are lifted and seeks to increase crude exports by 1.0 million bpd within a year.
