On Monday it's "Presidents Day" in the US so markets are closed and China markets re-open after a week off.
I would say a sell-off this PM as no-one will want to be risk-on over the weekend... thoughts?

about the same, the bears will want to take a profit though and the temptation of cheap may be too iresistable

for me I will play a slightly positive on FTSE 5660 TO 5520 range
for the DOW 15481 remains my number to go long and Im already short 15781 on that

At a time when many investors and economists fear a potential recession in the global economy, the publication of the preliminary reading of the Eurozone GDP gains greater relevance. Compared to the previous quarter, the Eurozone economy will have grown 0.40%, which would put the annual increase in 1.50%. Underpinning this growth was essentially domestic demand and to a lesser extent investment. These items should have offset the slowdown in exports due to the weakening of China and other emerging economies. For 2016, estimates point, on average, for an increase between 1.50% and 1.80%, helped again by domestic demand, which should be underpinned by low interest rates and the fall in unemployment and fuel prices. The main risks are the economic slowdown in emerging countries, especially China, geopolitical tensions and volatility in financial markets.

ftse pre-market currently 5810. Suspect there will be a gap fill followed by upwards and then downwards - ie usual gyrations. Gap fill to 5750 - 5730, upwards to 5850. Let's see.
