US equities had traded mostly in the red after the Wall St open, with strong gains in Visa shares following their better-than-expected earnings release after-market yesterday unable to lift the DJIA out of negative territory and the NASDAQ-100 outperforming buoyed by strength seen in Amazon, Biogen and Google shares. Today’s lacklustre GDP release (2.6% vs. Exp. 3.0%) weighed on equities as it showed as weak business spending and an increase in trade deficit overpowered the highest Personal Consumption figure since 2006. Adding to the downside, concerns increased over Greece’s new leadership as the new Greek finance minister stating that the new government is not willing to cooperate with their main creditors and would not be looking to extend the debt relief program. Later during the session oil prices enjoyed their biggest one-day gain in two and a half years after the Baker Hughes rig count showed the number of rigs in the US fell by 90 (-7%) to its lowest level since 1987 and amid touted short-covering. This consequently helped US stocks come off their lowest levels of the day, with the energy sector outperforming in the S&P 500. Heading into the close, equity futures continued to move lower amid a relatively large sell-side imbalance going into month-end.

Amid the weakness seen in equities in the weak US economic growth data, USTs traded alongside relatively large month-end extensions. The late rally in oil which subsequently benefitted stocks weighed further on treasuries however still managed to hold onto the brunt of gains at the CBOT pit close.

In the commodities market, spot gold surged higher to record its highest gain in three years as disappointing macroeconomic data and the weakness in stocks led investors to flock to safe-haven assets. Elsewhere, copper prices also posted strong gains for the day however still recorded a seventh weekly loss to suffer its worst run since August 2008, while aluminium prices moved higher for the first time in four days amid speculation of an imbalance between supply and demand, with Rusal –the world’s largest aluminium producer – saying they have no intention to increase production by restarting some of their idle units. 

Finally, the DJIA finished down 1.44% at 17,166.10, the S&P 500 finished down 1.30% at 1,995.04 and the NASDAQ-100 finished down 0.79% at 4,148.42.
