Stock index futures are sharply higher in early Sunday trade, perhaps encouraged by chatter about a €TARP and a vast expansion of the EFSF, or maybe just bouncing after last week's bloodletting. S&P 500 +1.2%, German DAX +1.2%. Gold -0.4%, Silver -1.4%, Oil +0.8%.

  • Agreed, 42 points is nothing! With wild swings in the currency, 42 point could just reflect the latest intervention.
    There are no markets anymore, only interventions.
