US Stock markets closed mixed to lower yesterday as investors decided to take a breather, after five straight trading sessions of the S&P 500 setting new all-time highs. The S&P closed -0.09% while the Dow again closed higher with a 0.04% gain. with bond yields also lower. In the currency space the US Dollar has been softer, Euro, Sterling and the CHF stronger. The Aussie has been steady-to lower, though hugging 0.77, supported by the soggy US Dollar. It’s not been any surprising weakness in the US data that’s lead to US Dollar-selling. US Housing Starts/Building Permits for January (coming in the wake of post-election rises in Treasury yields and mortgage rates to which they follow), the Philly Fed, and Weekly Jobless Claims releases all beat street consensus, but these did not bring back support to the Dollar during the session.
