    Through 11 days, we really aren't seeing much change over the last update. The apparent improvement over 2011/2010 is primarily due to 12/2012 payments getting pushed to 11/30 because of the weekend. There is potential for some true revenue improvement if the trend holds, but that won't really solidify until the middle of next week when we get a glimpse at corporate tax receipts. With Social security ETF's going out today, we will probably see a $10B deficit in tomorrow's report.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
