    Earnings: Is this the trough? Much is being made that third-quarter year-over-year earnings for the S&P 500 index will be negative.

    This morning, it's all about politics. The second the nonfarm payroll report came out, I got the blasts: 7.8 percent unemployment good news for the White House, 103,000 change in private payrolls (poor number) positive for Republicans. Let's just leave it at that.

  • Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney following the first presidential debate with US President Barack Obama the University of Denver in Denver, CO.

    Do stock bulls have clear sailing into Election Day? That's what some traders think we have.

    Healthcare moving on debates. Governor Romney's performance last night has investors in certain healthcare sectors a bit nervous. Obamacare is perceived to be a positive for hospitals, slight negative for HMOs. Today, that trade is being reversed: hospital stocks are down, HMOs are up

  • Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney speaks during the Presidential Debate at the University of Denver on October 3, 2012 in Denver, Colorado.

    The consensus is that Governor Romney did well in the debates last night; while Europe is meandering on either side of positive or negative, U.S. stocks are higher.

  • Spain-Euro.jpg

    For a second day, S&P 500 futures rose the minute Europe opened. Spanish bailout request: when, not if. Now that the Spanish budget has been submitted and a review of its banks capitalization needs is completed, everyone is anticipating Spain will make a formal bailout request.

  • Jason Blatt of Knight Captial, Americas, LP reacts to down markets on the New York Stock Exhchange floor.

    An SEC roundtable on market stability, taking place in Washington Tuesday, has already generated a very rare joint letter by the major stock exchanges that proposes creating a "kill switch" in an effort to control runaway algorithms.

  • Traders work in the ten-year U.S. Treasury Note options pit at the Chicago Board of Trade in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.

    Much has been made by bears about the deceleration in earnings growth, and it's true, the numbers are slowing. But it's still growing.
