Top Day Market News

Durable goods comes in at 5.7%. On the face of it, it’s a strong number. Without the transportation component, it’s down .05. Minus the defensive spending component it’s up 4.5%. We also get to consumer confidence at 10 o’clock. Markets are a little bit sluggish in this holiday period. It’s a little bit harder than usual to get momentum going one way or the other. Maybe the market is hung up on the consumer confidence number at 10 o’clock in terms of taking a direction. Banks in Cyprus remain closed.
