Intel's Q1 earnings beat expectations, that's despite a decline in sales of personal computers. The firm has now outlined a strategy to carve out its own share of the tablet market, changing direction due to the switch in consumer habits.

    Strong US March production data counters somewhat weak US housing starts data: US March Industrial Production comes in at +0.7% MoM vs. +0.5% expected, but on top of a very large revision of Feb. data (a further net +0.7%). US March Capacity Utilization jumped strongly in March as well to 79.2% vs. 78.7% expected and 78.8% in Feb. These are strong numbers that should be USD supportive.

    I'm just wondering how much credence can be given to economic data considering the underlying backdrop of interest rate distortions. Certainly, a near zero percent short-term...

    Traders are worried about being caught short in the crude oil market at the moment. This continue to support both WTI and Brent with the North Sea variety now trading back up to 110 USD/barrel for the first time in six weeks. Rising supply from Libya and the slowing demand from China are not front page news at the moment while the Ukraine crisis continue. In the US crude inventories are expected to rise again but falling gasoline inventories due to strong demand and specifics related to Cushing continue to support WTI Crude. https://www.tradingfloor.com/posts/us-eia-weekly-petroleum-status-report-2356230

    GBP jumping on strong employment data. UK Feb. Employment Change (3M/3M) at a robust +239k vs. +90k expected and +105k in Jan. and the Unemployment Rate drops to 6.9% vs. 7.1% expected and 7.2% in Jan. GBP jumping on this. This certainly argues for the "slack" in the UK economy looking smaller than Carney has suggested and takes the unemployment rate suddenly below the old 7.0% threshold that was recently abandoned. EURGBP is dropping to new local lows and GBPUSD is within striking distance of the 1.6820 cycle highs.

    March Jobless Claims Change was out at -30.4k vs. -30k expected and -37k in Feb.

    Gold has been on the defensive during Asian trading following a very ugly day yesterday. The news that Ukrainian forces had launched special operations and Putin's warning about a civil war only helped to stabilize the price and not attract new buying. For now the market is back in neutral after the positive sentiment built up over the past week was wiped out in a matter of minutes. The change in sentiment has been driven by improved US economic data this week but also a report from the World Gold Council yesterday did some damage as it estimated that China may have 1,000 tons of gold tied up in trade financing deals. This puts into doubt the future demand from China should the government intensify its attempt to crackdown on using commodities to raise finance. Resistance is today's pivot at 1304.6 followed by 1313. Support at 1293 and 1282
