Futures point towards mixed opening

Market Recap:

Stocks were mixed yesterday with the S&P and Dow falling slightly and the Nasdaq gaining as investors weighed continuing developments in Europe and oversupply concerns once again drove oil prices downward. In Europe, negotiations between Greece and the rest of the Eurozone continue after Germany rejected a six month extension proposal on Greece’s current bailout program. Despite the current impasse however, there is widespread belief that a deal will eventually be made. Tech stocks led the S&P boosted by a 8.5% gain in Priceline (PCLN) after a positive earnings result. On the other side, Energy and Utilities lagged, falling .78% and 1.09% respectively. The US dollar once again ticked higher against its major counterparts, rising .1% against the yen and .2% versus the Euro.

Looking Ahead:

Looking ahead to today’s trading, futures are pointing towards a mixed opening with investors waiting for more news concerning the ongoing Greek bailout talks. On the economic front, flash US manufacturing PMI data will be released at 9:45am. Currently, markets in Europe are mixed while Asian markets were quiet due to the Lunar New Year.
