Gold to a new monthly Low.. Market waiting for any hints from Yellen today about raising rates!
Wall Street futures pointed to a higher open on Monday as global stocks got off to a positive start to the week with investors looking ahead to economic data and an appearance from former Federal Reserve (Fed) chief Ben Bernanke while keeping an eye on moves in gold and oil.
U.S. orders for long-lasting manufactured goods fell more than forecast in May, while the core reading bounced back only slightly from a prior decline, dampening optimism over the U.S. economy, according to official data released on Monday.
Total durable goods orders, which include transportation items, decreased by 1.1% last month, the Commerce Department said, compared to economists’ expectations for a decline of 0.6%.
Separately, market players will have to wait for current Fed chair Janet Yellen to chime in on global economic issues until today’s speech as markets hope for any new insight on the timing of when the Fed will next raise interest rates and/or begin the reduction of its $4.5 trillion balance sheet.
