In Asia stocks were lower on Wednesday as investors feared the lack of positive signs of a sustainable recovery in China and other emerging markets. The Nikkei rose 0.1% to 16,574.06.

The USD/JPY fell on Wednesday as investors took profits after intervention warnings from Japanese officials. The dollar fell 0.4% to 108.83 yen. The euro/usd added 0.1% to $1.13810.

Oil prices fell on Wednesday as Canadian oil sand production was expected to gradually ramp up following forced closures due to wildfires, and as record crude inventories especially in the United States put pressure on markets. International Brent crude oil futures were trading at $45.49 per barrel, down 3 cents from their last settlement, while U.S. WTI crude futures were down 8 cent at $44.58 a barrel. Industry group American Petroleum Institute (API) said on Tuesday that U.S. crude inventories rose by 3.45 million barrels to a record 543.1 million barrels during the week ended May 6. Spot gold was up 0.3 percent at $1,269.20 an ounce.

In the US stocks rose across the board on last night, with a jump in oil and a rally in Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) helping propel the S&P 500. The S&P 500 rose 1.25% to 2,084.39. Gap (NYSE:GPS) lost 11.51% after the retailer reported a decline in sales for the fifth straight quarter. After the bell, Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) posted a fiscal second-quarter report that disappointed investors and its stock fell 5%.

  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
