Canadain retail sales came in better than expected.

Market News

9.25.12

Top Day Market News

With the expectation of continuing improvement in the housing sector and the expectation that there will be an uptick in consumer confidence, stocks are continuing to drift higher this morning. Oil has linked to equities for the moment but faces strong resistance at 94 with an eventual target of 87. Canadain retail sales came in better than expected. On the other hand, Staples is closing 60 stores as a cost cutting measure.  Expect the market to thin around 2:30 this afternoon ahead of the religious holiday tomorrow.
