Oh, calm down. Worries about an imminent correction are a bit overblown, at least at this point. The S&P 500 hit a 15-month high of 1150—on Tuesday! A correction is a decline of 10 percent—the S&P would have to drop to 1035 to be in that territory...
Great news! We're growing too fast. China's GDP surged 10.7 percent in the fourth quarter compared to the same period a year ago, above expectations of a gain of 10.5 percent.

Traders are citing Intrade, which allows investors (gamblers) to bet on the direction of anything, now giving 84.9 percent odds that Massachusetts Republican State Senator Scott Brown will defeat Democrat Martha Coakley.
US airlines are trading up 1 to 2 percent today. Airline earnings season begins this week with AMR (AMR, Jan 20), Continental (CAL, Jan 21), and Southwest (LUV, Jan 21) all reporting this week. Traders still getting over the shock of Japan Air Lines (JAL) bankruptcy; JAL has been bailed out 4 times in past 10 yrs by the Japanese government...
It's early, but sell the news is the mantra so far for earnings. Stock are futures down, bonds and the dollar are up this morning. The S&P 500 recorded its largest down day in almost a month last Thursday, despite a good report from Intel. In-line (Citi) or even slightly better than expected earnings (Intel) may not be good enough...
