The US equity market has started the week with a correction yesterday. The greenback could get use of the profit taken and this risk aversion sentiment but it is losing ground right now with the green US blue ships future. The market has seen that there can be a chance for taking profit right now and by god's will, it looks that we are to be around these levels for while till new signs of recovery after this recent optimistic rally. The new US session is about to start and we have just had the U.S. Trade deficit release which has grown to $27.58 billion in March and it was expected to be $29.7 billion and Feb trade deficit has revised to $26.13 billion in Feb and it was expected to be 25.97 billion and the trade data were not significant enough to effect in the currencies market.
Yesterday, Bernenke has tried to cool down the market and bring back the confidence to it saying that stress test results were encouraging and the deflation risks are diminishing adding that the US economy is strong supporting the greenback which will remain the worlds first currency and Trichet has tried the same saying that the worst of the global economic recession may now be over.
