|CRUDE OIL +0.50%|
|Crude oil prices dropped from resistance 2 at USD$66.92 per barrel, to the current trading level of USD$63.70. Concerns about demand returned to the market.

|Price is at the Pivot Point, which could signal a change in trend. If the Bulls prevail, we could see price go as high as 65.13 to 66.03. If the Bears gain ground, 62.65 and 60.97. Pivot point at 63.63.|
|DAX 30 +0.40%|
|Markets in Europe open in positive territory. At this moment the DAX 30 is up 0.40% and is trading at 15,204. The ECB warned the market of “Irrational Exuberance”, foreseeing important corrections in equities and real estate. It also warned of the risk of insolvency when economic stimulus ends. On the other hand, the European Union is coordinating the strategy for the opening of air borders to vaccinated travelers; thus, the tourism sector could start to recover. Today we will have announcements from Christine Lagarde, President of the ECB.|

|From the market’s perspective, the FED sounded very passive, so Wall Street closed in red and in Asia the market remained mixed. The FED minutes stated that the fixed income instrument purchase program to stabilize bond yields will continue. As a result, there is a shift away from the FED and the ECB strategies. The FED is more focused on inflation and the ECB on the market. Meanwhile, Wall Street indices remain in red, with the S&P500 down 0.12% at the moment.|
