Treasury Auctions Highlight Slow Econ Calendar Until Friday

by devteam March 8th, 2010 | Share

Equity futures are moderately higher ahead of a fairly light week of economic data. 

Dow futures are trading 18 points higher at 10,563 and S&P 500 futures are up a 2 points to 1,138. 

Commodities are also edging slightly higher with WTI crude oil up 33 cents to $81.83 per barrel and Spot Gold up 54 cents to $1,135.19.

Meantime, the US dollar is a bit lower against the euro since France’s Nicolas Sarkozy said the continent would help Greece: “if it were necessary, the states of the euro zone would fulfill their commitments.” 

In terms of data the week ahead doesn’t quite begin until Wednesday afternoon when the Treasury releases its budget statement. On Thursday, weekly jobless claims will be accompanied by the monthly trade balance. Friday’s retail sales index is the highlight this week.
