An Ointment for Nervous Traders, Mixed Result in Early Asian Trading

Asian markets have opened with relative calm this morning and mixed results in the aftermath of Saturday’s military entanglements in Syria via the U.S, U.K, and France.

The fact that the White House has stated it has accomplished its objective may serve as an ointment for nervous traders. There will be plenty of economic data this week and the U.S kicks off the reports with its Core Retail Sales numbers today. The New York Fed will release its Empire State Manufacturing Index numbers too. Wall Street went into the weekend with slight losses but did show improved sentiment most of last week. Traders should keep in mind that on early Tuesday, China will release growth numbers which could prove important.
