Efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare have collapsed as two Senators withdrew their support and given only a two seat Senate advantage, the best the Republicans can do it focus on a repeal that provides a couple years to work out a replacement.  The development will most likely delay what the markets are really looking forward to, tax reform.  Market focus is shifting to corporate earnings with NFLX poised to open over 10% higher over a surprise growth in their subscriber base.  Plenty of big names reporting today including BAC, GS, AMTD, IBM, HOG, UAL, UNH, CSX, and LMT.  There is some economic data with Import Prices @ 8:30am EST and NAHB @ 10:00am EST, but nothing significant to move the markets.  The ES remains pinned under its all-time high; maybe the earnings can break the log jam.  If not, then expect continued muted upside volatility.  Size bias is long into the US session open.

Friday saw record closing highs for US stock indexes and strong Chinese economic data has the European stock markets up this morning as the US earnings season begins to kick in gear with NFLX and BLK reporting today.  It’s a light data Monday with only Empire State @ 8:30am EST making it hard to predict today’s volatility.  There is a chance that the bulls will take another run at new highs, but most likely, the upside volatility will be muted and bullish price action grinding where the downside has the better chance for larger volatility.  No Size bias as overnight trading volume was both light and mixed.
