Philly Fed manufacturing survey

U.S. stocks fell for the first time in four days as trade tensions resurfaced amid mixed earnings reports. Treasuries slipped and the dollar gained. The S&P 500 Index dropped as Chinese regulators ratcheted up their scrutiny of a Qualcomm Inc. acquisition, increasing trade concerns and helping to pull down chipmakers. Treasury yields reached 2.90 percent, the highest in eight weeks, while the greenback rose for a third day. Currently, the TSX and the DJIA are down 0.30% and 0.01% respectively. EURCAD is down 0.40% trading between 1.5570 and 1.5643. GBPCAD is down 0.02% trading between 1.7872 and 1.7956. JPYCAD is unchanged trading between 0.01172 and 0.01176. Gold is down 0.15% trading between $1,345 and $1,354USD/oz., silver is up 0.65% trading between $17.12 and $17.34USD/oz., while oil is up 0.73% trading between $68.70 and $69.50.
