Positive shares offset by weaker commodities

18 Aug 2015 By Michael McCarthy (chief market strategist, CMC Markets) by CMC Markets Day traders face a particular challenge today as positive moves in European and US share markets are offset by further falls in oil and industrial metal prices.

Market Swings

Some relief from the wall of worry

29 Jul 2015 By Ric Spooner (Chief Market Analyst, CMC Markets) by CMC Markets Traders will get some relief from the “wall of worry” this morning. The fact that China’s stock markets bounced off lows yesterday combined with the first rally for some time in oil and base metals markets will provide an improved macro setting for early trade today
