After a week of strong earnings from UK financials, Standard Charter and RBS both missed expectations which has set a bearish tone for the ES during the European session.  Looking forward, it’s a light data day for the US session with New Home Sales and Revised UoM Consumer Sentiment @ 10:00am EST.  Volatility should remain similar to yesterday unless traders find some new fundamental information to change their expectations.  Size was very active overnight and their bias is short into the US session open.

The ES was mixed overnight, turning slightly bullish on outstanding earnings from Barclay’s and Glencore.  Yesterday’s FOMC minutes did little to move the markets as the ES remains poised to grind to new all-time highs once again.  We have some tier 1 number releases this morning in Unemployment Claims @ 8:30am EST and Crude Oil Inventories @ 11:00am EST.  Additionally, FOMC’s Dallas President Kaplan speaks @ 1:00pm EST.  I expect the grinding to new highs to continue with the potential for higher volatility to the downside than the upside.  Size bias is short into the 8:30am EST Unemployment Claims.
