Huge day in the markets yesterday as M&A activity has found itself, once again, on the front page of the WSJ. Everyone is talking about it, including yours truly on Neil Cavuto's show yesterday. The $14 billion in deals inked yesterday pushed the markets to new highs and has the Dow dancing with 10,000.
Two big reports on deck that could push the markets even higher:
1. 9am NYT, Case-Shiller Home Price Index
2. 10am NYT, Conference Board Consumer Confidence Report
Now, the overseas boxscore:
Hang Seng: +2.06%
Straits Times: +1.30%
Shanghai Composite: -0.33%
More later, with lots of breaking news today.
Talk to you,
