Trader Talk: An Analysis of the Markets this Morning

Good morning,

Markets are called to open flat this morning. Asian stocks snapped a three-day gain and European equity futures slid as China reported slowing economic growth amid easing industrial production and asset spending. Oil retreated as gold extended its advance.


PSA Peugeot Citroen, Europe’s second-biggest carmaker, increased vehicle sales by 4.1 percent in the fourth quarter, stemming its decline for the year as it seeks to raise money to fund a turnaround plan. Deliveries in the last three months of 2013 rose to 748,000 vehicles, boosted by demand for the 2008 crossover and 308 hatchback, the Paris-based manufacturer said today. Full-year sales fell 4.9 percent to 2.82 million cars and light commercial vehicles.
