Nonetheless, the markets were able to bounce back throughout the session, finishing just under four-month highs.Despite the late volatility, the markets remain on track to post solid monthly gains, mostly benefiting from a weaker U.S. Dollar which continued to be hit by concerns over the recovery of the U.S. economy as the coronavirus ravages economic output.

WTI Crude OilThe West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil market has sold off a bit during the trading session to break down below the $39 level. Ultimately, this is a market that had desperately been looking for some type of momentum, and it looks as if it may finally have found it. It is to the downside but there is also the 50 day EMA underneath that should continue to offer support as well.
