Bobbys Corner-Open Market-Jan.12.2011

Good Morning:

I am writing the Cbob-slade-forex-2-150x200orner from home today-as my area is the victim of another major snow storm -oh-well-that is what happens in the winter in the Northeast of the US.

In what is normally a quiet session prior to US employment data (due out at 8:30 AM today)-the Euro lost ground to the USD as data from the EZ (Retail Sales,Trade Balance and GDP) missed expectations.

US employment data is expected to show an increase in jobs-which is adding to the markets optimism that the US economy is gaining traction and looks to gets stronger in 2011.  Hopefully this optimism will also be shared by the business community-thus resulting in new hiring.

The USD continued to trade stronger in the overnight sessions.  Concerns that the slow recovery in some EU countries will keep the debt crisis on the front burner for some time to come.  China stated that it will buy 6 billion euro of Spanish debt.  Investors will be looking to see if China’s purchases can calm speculators-or will Spain be the next recipient of an EU bailout?

 World equity markets traded higher-and US Futures are also pointing to a higher opening this morning.

The first full trading day of 2011 got underway with risk on the plate as the main course.  With all of the major centers back after the New Years holiday-the equity markets were poised for a rally after yesterday’s 90+ point increase in the Dow to start off 2011.
