MACAU--(Marketwire - Oct 10, 2011) - Today, www.EquityMarketsInc.com announced its research report highlighting Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp. and Abraxas Petroleum Corp. (NYSE: AXAS). Full content and research is available at www.EquityMarketsInc.com/research.php?id=KOG+AXAS.

Short-term outlooks within US and global economies continue to adjust downward, as US Treasury yields touched their lowest levels in over 65 years. International Monetary Fund downgraded estimates for US growth by 1.0% this year, down from 2.5%. 'Significant downside risks' to the US economy were confirmed by the Federal Reserve pressured by 'strains in global financial markets.'

As the US dollar trades above an eight-month high against the Euro, it highlights a deepening of the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis -- furthered by continued policy inaction from European governments. We expect continued volatility until economic data stabilizes and we see decisive policy action to deal with the Eurozone debt crisis.
