Stay tuned...this is going to be a good one on what should be a sleepy Friday before the 3-day weekend. We'll provide reports throughout the day.
But, for now, let's get to the overseas scoreboard.
Asia rocked again: China Shanghai Composite (+0.6%), Hang Seng (+2.8%), India's Sensex (+1.9%).
US Futures right now--meaningless, because nobody is making a move until that report is released at 8:30am EST.
Here in the U.S. yesterday: Markets ended the 3-day losing streak, by posting gains following upbeat reports from the nation's retailers. The S&P 500 advanced 0.9%.
I'll report the jobs data once it's released.
Talk to you,
