Morning Morse-Global Uptick

Global markets are ticking higher yet again and the Santa rally remains in tact. We closed at fresh yearly highs on the S&P yesterday and traded through 1120 intraday. Let’s see if we can break through that level and close there today.

Gold is soft yet again and refuses to start a rebound, oil is back up to around $75 and I’m putting some SLB away today.

TBT has been on a great run, and anyone who is waiting for the Fed to move has missed the boat on that one. Rates move without the Fed and they can’t manipulate the long end anyway.

There will be no shortage of data today so stay on your toes. Have a great day.
