Today we'll see earnings from MasterCard, Chevron, and Mattel among others. We'll also see the Chicago PMI and Michigan sentiment reports. If the numbers don't impress look for traders to turn their gaze abroad as global uncertainty seems to be taking hold. Turkey may not be in the EU but its currency situation has put a spotlight on the European emerging markets and that ain't good. If selling can start anywhere - maybe it already has. Trade wisely.

THURSDAY RECAP
Equities rebounded yesterday as traders decided to look on the bright side. There were some strong earnings reports and the advance GDP number came in at a respectable 3.2%. On the darker side, pending home sales came in way under expectations at -8.7%. Another tiny little storm cloud on the horizon could be the emerging-market currency selloff that we've seen this month. However you look at it the S&P settled up +10.00 at 1781.20, the DJIA rallied +109.82 to close at 15848.61 and the Nasdaq vaulted up +71.69 to close at 4123.13.
