Futures are appreciably higher today as a the markets try to bounce off of the recent lows.

Today is St. Patrick’s day, which means a huge parade — right in front of my office on 5th Avenue — lots of crowds, police and excess drinking.

If you need to come in NYC today, I urge you to take mass transit.

  1. How many believe this will be a dead cat bounce?

    Also, how will the markets react when Gadaffi’s forces attempt to take Benghazi?

    Cramer has been out there pushing CRM as a long – perhaps a symbol of exuberance on the way down?

    Looks like the speculators are counting on government largesse coming out of economic jerkoff conferences to support prices once again. Can’t have assets seeking their true values can we?

    One good question to ask is who are Toyota’s top creditors.

    Are Japanese stocks now at a point comparable to the US market of two years ago?

  5. Mike in Nola says:

    Transor: Toyota is pretty big. I think the more interesting plays would be on its US supply chain partners who are going to be hit by the slowdown in its production here because of a lack of Japan-manufactured parts.

    wally: easily accessible charts on CNBC or Bloomberg. Nikkei is still about 10% above 2008 lows I think.

    Next leg of the cyclical Bull. Thought we might take a deeper breath but I guess that’s it. We shall see.

    Happy St Paddy’s lads and lasses.

  7. The Catholics can take mass transit Barry but what about the protestants?
