The S&P 500 Index halted a 3-day advance as Goldman Sachs Group Inc. retreated after missing estimates for sales and trading revenue. Citigroup Inc. was little changed after its revenue matched expectations. The benchmark for American equities is near a 6-month high and less than 1% from its record after a torrid run so far in 2019. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index traded in a tight range Monday, as losses in mining shares offset increases in media and insurance. The euro strengthened for a second day. In Asia, equities approached a fresh six-month high, propelled by markets in Japan and Korea, following the Bank of China's release of upbeat credit data late Friday. With Chinese trade and lending data showing signs of improvement for the world's second-biggest economy, investors are turning to the U.S. earnings season to confirm the resilience of corporate America in the face of numerous challenges to growth. JPMorgan Chase & Co. posted strong first-quarter results last week, and Bank of America Corp. is up on Tuesday. Central banks remain in the picture, with President Donald Trump renewing his attack on the Fed leadership over the weekend, saying the stock market would be "5,000 to 10,000" points higher had it not been for the actions of U.S. policy makers. Currently, the TSX is down 0.03% and the DJIA is down 0.24%. EURCAD is up 0.53% trading between 1.5035 and 1.5143. GBPCAD is up 0.74% trading between 1.7413 and 1.7550. JPYCAD is up 0.46% trading between 0.01188 and 0.01194. Gold is down 0.21% trading between $1,282 and $1,292USD/oz, silver is down 0.12% trading between $14.85 and $15.00USD/oz, while oil (WTI crude) is down 0.86% trading between $63.18 and $64.73.
