MARKET COMMENTS

Mar E-mini S&Ps (ESH16 +0.24%) this morning are up +1.50 points (+0.08%). Wednesday’s closes: S&P 500 -1.09%, Dow Jones -1.38%, Nasdaq -2.48%. The S&P 500 on Wednesday closed lower on negative carryover from the -0.52% drop in China’s Shanghai Composite to a 13-3/4 month low, weakness in technology stocks after Apple fell by more than 6% on smaller-than-expected Q2 revenue indications, and some disappointment that the FOMC’s post-meeting statement was not more dovish.

Mar 10-year T-notes (ZNH16 unch) this morning are down -0.5 of a tick. Wednesday’s closes: TYH6 +8.50, FVH6 +4.75. Mar T-notes on Wednesday closed higher on the slide in stocks that boosted the safe-haven demand for T-notes, and the post-FOMC meeting statement said that the Fed was watching global developments closely and that it expects to raise interest rates at a “gradual” pace. Gains were limited after U.S. Dec new home sales rose at the fastest pace in 10 months.

The dollar index (DXY00 unch) this morning is down -0.059 (-0.06%). EUR/USD (^EURUSD) is up +0.0022 (+0.20%) at a 1-week high. USD/JPY (^USDJPY) is up +0.11 (+0.09%). Wednesday’s closes: Dollar Index -0.458 (-0.46%), EUR/USD +0.0023 (+0.21%), USD/JPY +0.26 (+0.22%). The dollar index on Wednesday closed lower as the post-FOMC meeting statement adopted more dovish language and as the rally in crude oil boosted the Canadian dollar to a 3-week high against the dollar.

Mar crude oil (CLH16 +0.03%) this morning is up +13 cents (+0.40%) and Mar gasoline (RBH16 +2.16%) is up +0.0200 (+1.87%). Wednesday’s closes: CLH6 +0.71 (+2.26%), RBH6 -0.0008 (+0.07%). Mar crude oil and gasoline on Wednesday closed higher as Mar gasoline recovered from a contract low. Crude oil prices were boosted by the weaker dollar and by the -771,000 bbl decline in crude oil supplies at Cushing, OK, the delivery point for WTI futures, the first decline in twelve weeks. Crude oil prices were undercut by the +8.38 million bbl surge in weekly EIA crude supplies and the +3.46 million bbl increase in weekly EIA gasoline stockpiles to 248.46 million bbl, more than expectations of +1.0 million bbl and a 15-3/4 year high.
