Durable Goods Ex-transports came at 0.4% vs. 0.5% consensus.  We exclude transports because they are too volatile and make it difficult for use in our timing models.  Please click here to see how we filter out the noise.

The round-robin continues as more buying is coming in the early trade in the U. S. market inspired by strength in the overseas markets.

The ‘smart money’ is inactive.

Turkish Lira Hits All Time Low

The Turkish lira hits an all time low before the central bank forced a more expensive borrowing window on lenders. Investors are concerned about what may come out of a trial of a Turkish-Iranian gold trader.  There is concern that Turkish officials may have evaded U. S. sanctions against Iran.
