U.S. stocks were able to finish last week’s trading session on a high. This is after there was a lot of turbulence, especially amid the Russian invasion of the Crimea. Each week, we are seeing a lot of unpredictable economic and political events occurring. However, this did not lead traders to go short on American assets. The exact opposite was true, because it may be the case that investors see U.S. assets as a haven.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed on Friday by 0.3 percent to 16,321.71. The Nasdaq Composite Index dipped 0.25 percent to 4,308.12.

Crude Oil

Crude oil futures are trading higher this morning by $1.45 at $104.04. The commodity is trading at its highest level in six months, as the crisis in the Ukraine worsens. There seems to be many more risks in the financial markets at the moment, which has driven demand up for commodities such as crude oil. The stronger dollar today seems to be having no impact on the energy. Opening weekly Call options when you get a chance is the way to go if you want to earn high returns.


The gold binary option advanced to its highest price level in four months after Russia seized the Crimea. The increasing tension in Ukraine is boosting the demand for the commodity.

Taking this into account, start opening your Call options in gold.
