Which is it? What does Mr. Market prefer.? No sooner am I done putting together a thesis about tomorrow-- that retail sales will be weak, that Mr. market will bring back the harsher language on housing today from the fed and add one and one together and convince itself that rates are soon to go lower and we rally hard-- than GE comes out with a glowing preview of the economy. What then if retail sales are strong? That coupled with GE does the market like that too? I think so.
