    Morning Notes
    -Trading is mixed in overseas markets
    -Interesting move in China- it announced it will change CPI data release to Saturday from Monday
    -This move triggered speculation that rate hike will come soon, perhaps this weekend
    -Hang Seng sold off 1.4% and the Shanghai closed down 95bps
    -Nikkei, however, was up about 90bps, helped by a weaker yen
    -German exports data came in weaker than expected
    -Bank of France increase Q4 GDP outlook
    -Dollar showing strength this morning
    -Commodities are down a bit
    -Nothing on the economic calendar for today (has been a quiet week so far for economic data releases)
    -A couple of positive corporate news in the U.S., however: HD announced an improved outlook, raising FY11 guidance and COST reported solid earnings
    -S&P futures are somewhat choppy this morning; currently up 1.5 handles from FV, trading on the S3 buy pivot signal

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