Markets Higher Closing News 18 June 2013.

End of Day Report  by Giuseppe Montefinese

U.S. equities extended a two day rally with the Dow finishing 138 points higher as soft housing, and in-line inflation data ease tapering concerns ahead of tomorrow's FOMC policy announcement.  All major sectors are in positive territory, with Telecom, and Industrials topping gains.  Staples and Materials however, relatively underperformed.

Today’s report from the Labor Department said the Consumer Price Index edged 0.1% higher in May after two straight months of declines, while the core index, which excludes food and energy costs, rose 0.2%, just above the recorded pace in April.

A separate report from the Commerce Dept. showed U.S. Housing Starts rose less than forecast in May, likely reflecting labor and material costs.  Housing Starts rose 6.8% to 914K, yet fell short of the 949K consensus .  The overall trend however, still remains consistent with a housing market recovery, one that may help counter the drag on the economy should the government begin dialing back its stimulus measures.

Market Indices/Statistics:

    Dow closed up 138.23 pts/+0.91% to 15,318.23; 29 of the 30 Dow stocks closed higher.
    S&P closed up 12.77 pts/+0.78% to 1,651.81; all of the 10 S&P 500 sectors closed higher.
    Nasdaq closed up 30.05 pts/+0.87% to 3,482.18
    Telecom was the strongest sector (+1.29 %), Staples were the weakest (+0.44%).
    The VIX finished down 0.19 to 16.61
    Oil is up 0.60 to $98.63
    Nat Gas is up 0.028 to $3.924
    Gold is down 16.2 to $1,366.80
    Euro vs. Dollar is up  0.0029 to $1.3395
    Yen vs. Dollar is up 0.92 to $95.40

Top Headlines:

The Fed's two-day meeting which started today, has traders pressing bullish bets as they try to anticipate the Fed's timeline for winding down $85B per month of QE bond purchases that have underpinned the S&P 500's recent rally to all-time highs.

Boeing (BA,$104.08) launched a larger version of its flagship Dreamliner aircraft at the Paris Airshow on Tuesday, sharpening the battle with rival Airbus in the market for fuel efficient, long distance jets. Boeing shares rose 1.02% to a 5 1/2-year high.

Vodafone Group plc (VOD,$28.67) may be facing a battle for Germany's largest cable company, Kabel Deutschland, against rival bidder Liberty Global.  Vodafone, which offered about 82 euros per share in cash for Kabel, wants to buy the cable company so that it can offer TV, fixed line and broadband to more of its mobile customers, while Liberty Global (who has regulatory and financial hurdles to overcome) wants more consolidation in one of its best performing markets.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
