Global summary

The markets seem to be in a sort of malaise. US stocks were down yesterday 0.75% for the S&P, the Dow was down 1.51%. Gold reached 901.6 while oil barely moved at 40.30. The dollar gained against major European currencies. Obama’s economic stimulus plan and failure to move it through Congress fast enough (or in tact) weigh on already negative sentiment which faces more bad news every day.
