Daily Video Update: New week, same old problems

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 16th of July.

As we start this new trading week, we still have a myriad of problems that haven't gone away. This morning, Citi Bank announced their earnings for the second quarter. Earnings exceeded expectations, but fell short on revenue.

Technically, the banks are locked in a broad trading range and we are at the upper levels of that range at the moment.

Disappointing retail sales this morning underscore the still fragile psyche of the American consumer. Consumers continue to struggle with the uncertainty of the upcoming elections. At the same time, the world economy continues to muddle through fiscal austerity that is going to infect Europe and the markets for sometime to come.

      We just double checked the video and the audio plays all the way through. It sounds like you may be having an buffering issue, start the video then pause for a few seconds to let it catch up. If that doesn't work try updating your Flash Player.
