Futures off marginally, but Treasurys and gold continue run higher

  • Stocks are set to take a slight breather at the open after a big two-day run higher. Yesterday's dovish FOMC minutes capped by remarks from Chicago Fed boss Charles Evans continues to hold effect in the bond market, where the 10-year Treasury yield falls another three basis points to 2.66%. News that rate hikes might not be coming as quick as expected has gold staying jiggy as well, up another 1.3% to $1,323 per ounce.
  • Unable to feed off yesterday's afternoon rally in the States, Europe is off moderately, but Asia was mostly higher overnight, led by a 1.4% gain in Shanghai.

    Sad to note = not even a passing mention to Putin's continued aggressive designs against the Ukraine =

     

    such indifference in 1938 = I watched the unfolding drama as a teenager =
    led directly to WW2 in the following year, with intensification of the holocaust,
    with over 100 million victims.

     

    Such indifference in 2014 is IMO = the direct path to disaster.

     

    But Wall Street fiddles while the Crimea burns...
