Technical Talk: Select Sector SPDR Review - Most Remain Below 20-Day and 50-Day MA

by Don Vialoux, TechTalk

Pre-opening Comments for Thursday July 4th

Canadian equity prices are expected to open higher this morning. Prices are expected to respond to overnight strength by U.S. equity index futures and stronger European and most Asian equity markets. S&P 500 futures were up 7 points in pre-opening trade. Major European equity indices averaged a gain in excess of 1.0%.

Trading activity on the TSX is expected to be well below average today due to the U.S. Independence Day holiday. U.S. markets are closed.

European equity markets were virtually unchanged following news that the Bank of England and the European Central Bank maintained their overnight lending rate at 0.5%.
