Talking Points

Cycle-sensitive crude oil and copper prices are following stocks higher while gold and silver are finding a bit of support on ebbing haven demand for the US Dollar. S&P 500 index futures are trading flat however, hinting leaving the door open for a reversal. A disappointing US Durable Goods print may be enough to tip sentiment into negative territory, but the earnings docket could yet offer a counterbalance in the wake of upside surprises on reports from with cycle-sensitive Procter & Gamble, Ford and Boeing.
