A busy day in the markets yesterday. Yields rose, weighing on Tech but supporting banks and value stocks, and supporting the USD. In the end the Dow Jones gained 0.5%, the S&P 500 0.17% and the Nasdaq lost 0.5% Tesla closed 4% lower.
Overnight, the US 10 year yield is trading lower at 1.6350 after 1.6850 yesterday. EURUSD is trading at 1.1245 and GBPUSD at 1.3385 with the USD Index little changed at 96.40. Gold and Silver fell significantly yesterday but stabilized at 1790 and 23.60 for now. Curiously, we saw similar moves precisely a year ago in the precious metals after the US election.
The key question seems if we will see a strong year end rally or if profit taking and corona and yield worries weigh.
