Time now for an in-depth look at markets around the world.
And for that, I'm joined on the line by Daniel Yoo, Global Strategist at Yuanta Securities.
Hi Daniel, thanks for joining us today.
Oil extended its climb out of a month-long trading range with further signs of an accelerating rebound taking shape in the U.S.
Gold rose to the highest since late February, putting the metal on course for a second straight weekly gain.
Tell us about the commodities market and your forecast for the near-term.
Meanwhile, Wall Street notched more milestones Thursday as a market-wide rally pushed the S&P 500 to an all-time high and the Dow Jones industrial crossed above the 34-thousand mark for the first time.
Are we seeing optimism and expectations of a strong economic recovery in investor sentiment?
Now, taking a cue from an overnight rally on Wall Street, South Korean shares opened higher on this Friday and even crossed the 32-hundred mark in the first 15 minutes of trading. But, closed little changed from yesterday at just a touch below 32-hundred.
What are you making out of the South Korean market?
Daniel Yoo of Yuanta Securities. Thanks for speaking with us this afternoon. We appreciate it.
