Energy companies can save every economy, haha. No, really, the variations of the energy companies are always giving a tone in the day-to-day news of the markets, being driven by (volatile?) energy and resources prices driving up and down. That's drove Asian markets higher today while United States was sleeping. A closer look: NIKKEI is at 18,322.98 pts, with +0.75% and +136.88 pts, meanwhile Hang Sang Index has +3.13%, or +684.14 pts at 22,515.76 pts. Australian's ASX 200 from S&P is at 5,197 pts, meaning +0.59% and +30.47. Shangai Composite from China have +0.50% with +15.19 pts or a total of 3,053.32 pts, and finally, KOSPI have 2,005 pts or +0.76% or +15.19 pts. Do you think energy markets is too much volatile? Should they be "ruled out" from stocks numbers?
