THE DOLLAR DISC
Equities have made a nice come back this morning despite the lousy news out of Citi - the SPX +9, NAZ +24 and the DJIA +75.
Strongest sectors include drugs, airlines, reits, emerging markets and small caps while nat gas, gaming, banks, metals and energy lags.
NYSE- 1235 net winners;
NAZ- 800 net winners;
SPX- 390/105 up to down;
NDX- 86/13 up to down;
VIX- down 2% while the VXX is down about 5%;
TRIN- .93 with up volume more than 2x the down;
Gold flat while crude down a bit and the dollar ripping higher again and clearly disconnected from equities for now.
Drug stocks leading the way as folks are thinking a victory in MASS will lead to the end of the health care reform bill- not so sure but that is what its saying for now-
In addition the SPX bounced off the EMA 20 on Friday and it was a pretty good entry point for a short term trade - so holding some SSO and selling some FAX as the yield is probably near the bottom of the intermediate term range.
