Cervantes

Hoy es el día más hermoso de nuestra vida, querido Sancho; los obstáculos más grandes, nuestras propias indecisiones; nuestro enemigo más fuerte, el miedo al poderoso y a nosotros mismos; la cosa más fácil, equivocarnos; la más destructiva, la mentira y el egoísmo; la peor derrota, el desaliento; los defectos más peligrosos, la soberbia y el rencor; las sensaciones más gratas, la buena conciencia, el esfuerzo para ser mejores sin ser perfectos, y sobretodo, la disposición para hacer el bien y combatir la injusticia dondequiera que esté.

U.S. Stocks Rise on Tech Bounce, Commodities Gain: Markets Wrap

  • JPMorgan, Citigroup, Wells Fargo due to report results
  • Oil fluctuates amid talk of caps on Libya, Nigeria production 
     
    Technology shares drove gains in U.S. equities, while natural gas and crude lifted commodities. The dollar strengthened with Treasuries as investors prepare to parse second-quarter earnings for more evidence global economic growth is back on track.
    The S&P 500 Index rose for a second day as tech shares rebounded from last week’s selloff. Trading was light, with the volume 15 percent below the 30-day average at this time of day. European equities advanced following a similar climb across much of Asia. The dollar edged higher against most major currencies and bonds recovered after a drop last week. Natural gas futures jumped and crude rose above $44.50 a barrel.
    With global stocks close to all-time highs, investors are shrugging off political uncertainty and placing their faith in a continued earnings expansion on broadening global growth. Germany’s trade surplus was higher than estimated as May exports beat forecasts, while U.S. employers added the most jobs in four months in June. PepsiCo Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Citigroup Inc. and Wells Fargo & Co. are set to report results this week.
    “Solid employment growth without inflation is the ‘not too hot, not too warm’ mix that keeps the Fed normalizing policy ever so slowly, equity indices marching ever higher and the economic cycle able to trundle on with no recession in sight,” Kit Juckes, a strategist at Societe Generale SA, wrote in a note to clients.
    The G-20 summit made little headway on dominant foreign policy issues such as North Korea’s escalation of tensions. Meetings between U.S. President Donald Trump and the leaders of South Korea, Japan and China ended without a clear consensus about how to curb North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.
