    German IFO better than expected in April. The business climate index climbed to 111.2 from 110.7 last month while consensus had expected 110.4.
    The current assessment index was mostly unchanged at 115.3 from 115.2 and 115.6 expected, so the improvement in the headline index came from the expectations index, which rose to 107.3 from 106.4. Consensus had predicted a drop to 105.8.
    Overall a solid report made even better by the fact that it is the expectations index, which is the main driver.

    SP500 E-mini ($ES_F) Aims to and Through the 1892.5 Peak

    S&P 500 rebound effort favors a more bullish shift
    • A high level digestion Wednesday to reinforce the switch to a range theme with the previous push above 1867.5 that neutralized the April topping structure.
    • We still see a positive bias to a boarder non-trend theme, simply defined by the April continuation chart peak and trough at 1892.5 and 1803.25.
    • We still see the bias higher for a test to 1887.5 and maybe the 1892.5 peak this week for a more bullish shift.
    • Upside: Above 1892.5 aims for 1900.0 and Fibo targets at 1912.5 and 1926.0.
    • Downside: Below 1803.25 aims for the 10 month trend line at 1795.0.

    French manufacturing confidence declined to 100 in April as expected. However the drop came about as a result of an upward revision to March from 100 to 101.

    Overall business confidence also declined to 94 vs. 96 expected and 95 prior as the order outlook weakened while inventories rose. Not a good report.

    Hi! We would like to see a break of the level.

    Dudette, could very well be that the final targets upon a break are higher.

    Chinese gold demand vulnerable to yuan carry-trade reversal

    Investors have done well in the past with a simple strategy of buying what China was buying. So earlier this year, things were looking up for gold when it was revealed that China had swept past India to become the world’s biggest buyer in 2013. For the first time, Chinese demand topped 1,000 tonnes, reaching 1,176 tonnes after a 41% year-on-year gain, not including central-bank buying. But now, a succession of holes in the bullish China gold-demand story have appeared.
