Key Economic News:
13:00: Minneapolis Fed President Narayana Kocherlakota on “Making Monetary Policy”. Q&A scheduled.
13:20: Dallas Fed President Richard Fisher on the economy. Q&A scheduled.
15:00: Federal Reserve Vice Chair Janet Yellen on “The Outlook for the US Economy and Economic Policy”. We will be watching closely for any discussion of changes in Fed communication and/or asset purchases. Governor Tarullo said yesterday that the Fed should “move back up toward the top of the list of options” large-scale purchases of MBS. The title of Vice Chair Yellen’s remarks suggests she may discuss issues beyond monetary policy—including fiscal and housing policies.
With no news for help, and the Europeans talking about the Euro. I would expect the market to remain flat.
My position on MBS stays neutral.

No Scheduled news today. More gossip and speculation in Europe. It does not appear that an agreement will be reached this weekend and it could take until the middle of next week.
This will continue to overshadow the markets and cause additional pent up demand for a very big and very wild swing, when this is out of the way.
We are still at a critical point on the charts, with a great deal more downside than upside.
