    Head of Commodity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    The Greek crisis continues to sap investor sentiment across the world. Since the breakdown in negotiations at the weekend global stocks have turned sharply lower while core bond yields have dropped. Gold meanwhile is trading unchanged from last Friday's close with no sign of a safe-haven bid emerging. What is going on?

    From the Floor: Gimme shelter
    Shanghai markets might give traders whiplash, but the steady hand of the People's Bank of China is always poised to provide relief. Not so in Europe, however, where the breakdown of talks between Greece and its creditors has left investors struggling to find safe havens.

    Morning Markets: Germany 1 Greece 0
    Germany's unemployment fell to a 24-year low in May and today’s update for June might send numbers higher again. Greece's shadow remains, but the case is still intact for thinking that the US will continue to post moderately stronger Consumer Confidence numbers after a weak first quarter.

    Beyond the brink
    There is exactly the same feeling in the air as before the Lehman default. The market is chasing "good hedges", which don’t exist, and my advice of taking a six-month holiday from markets unfortunately looks like good counsel.

    Crude oil under pressure as Iran deadline looms
    Crude oil has fallen to a three-week low as the risk of Greek contagion and the Iran nuclear negotiations have caused some nervous trading conditions. Diplomats in Vienna are close to a deal which would curb Iran's nuclear programme. The sanctions which have sharply reduced Iran's ability to export crude could be lifted if the negotiations are successful.

    COT:  Buyers return, but only in grains via short covering
    Hedge funds increased their bullish exposure to commodities by 15% during the week of June 23.
