  • Stocks staged a mini comeback Tuesday after a day that saw indexes seesaw on both sides of the unchanged line. The market once more fretted over the financial sector and could do the same on Wednesday.

  • Housing starts and earnings from Goldman Sachs and Best Buy are among the headlines the stock market will care about ahead of Tuesday's open.

    Time for the year end predictions, and I'll predict I stand by each one. Well, maybe not each one, but who knows, I might be right on at least number seven.

  • As we enter the final stretch of 2007, the stock market may temporarily lose some of its violent mood swings and secure gains for the month and the year.

  • Consumer inflation data is big on Friday's agenda after Thursday's producer prices showed wholesale level inflation surging at the fastest rate in 34 years.

  • Oil has been down more than $2 a barrel today, but some traders say the move to $100 is back in play. That trend became clear yesterday, when crude rose $4.37 to $94.39 per barrel, a 4.9 percent increase. Joe Terranova, MBF Clearing director of trading, said he saw a a condition in crude futures today he hasn't seen in months.

  • Except for car buying, the consumer didn't show signs of holding back in November even with a big pickup in energy prices that is beginning to hit at the wholesale level. That is what today's data shows with a 1.2 percent pickup in retail sales for November, double expectations, and a big 3.2 percent in jump in producer prices, the biggest increase in that number since 1973.

  • Lehman Bros.' fourth-quarter earnings report, producer price inflation data and November retail sales will be factors setting direction for Thursday's markets.

  • Wall Street's post Fed selloff could spill into Wednesday morning as the Street continues to debate why the Fed didn't deliver more interest rate relief, particularly when it's becoming increasingly glum on the economy.

  • I'm out of the office today, but hope to be back tomorrow with new posts. See you then.
