September 26, 2014

On American floors, the Dow Jones slumped 1.54 percent finishing the trading session at 16,945.80 points, the S&P 500 BMI dropped 1.62 percent down to 1,965.99 points, and the NASDAQ Composite plunged 1.94 percent down to 4,466.75 points.

On the London ICE, the price of Brent oil futures for November rose by $0.05 making $97 a barrel. The NYMEX price of WTI oil futures for November went down by $0.27 reaching $92.53 a barrel.

On the global currency market, EUR/USD arrived at 1.27 yesterday. This is quite a strong support level – not only daily but also weekly. The pair may stop here.
