Schedule for Week of May 19th

The Asian markets are green tonight with the Nikkei up 1.0%, and Shanghai Composite up 0.2%.

From CNBC: Pre-Market Data and Bloomberg futures: the S&P futures are down slightly and DOW futures are down 6 (fair value).

Oil prices have moved sideways recently with WTI futures at $95.99 per barrel and Brent at $104.62 per barrel.

Below is a graph from for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices are up 17 cents per gallon over the last two weeks to $3.67 per gallon. Based on Brent prices and the calculator at Econbrowser, I expect gasoline prices to fall soon.

If you click on "show crude oil prices", the graph displays oil prices for WTI, not Brent; gasoline prices in most of the U.S. are impacted more by Brent prices.
