DOW +58.46 Monday (+)

Cnn Money:

Fed vote: The Senate Banking Committee is expected to vote Tuesday on whether to
advance the nomination of Jerome Powell, President Trump's pick to lead the Federal Reserve.
If Powell is confirmed by the Senate panel, his nomination will advance to the Senate for a full vote.
Trump nominated Powell early last month to replace Janet Yellen when her four-year term as Fed
chairwoman expires on February 3.
A Fed governor since 2012, Powell is seen as a non-controversial pick for the role.

The deal that wasn't: British Prime Minister Theresa May failed Monday to move Brexit negotiations
with the European Union on to the critical issue of future trading arrangements.
May traveled to Brussels to outline arrangements that she hoped would convince the EU that hard
barriers would not return to the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland after Brexit.
The deal was scuttled after Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, which props up May's
minority government in Westminster, made its objections clear.
The episode underscores the fragile nature of the negotiations, which must be completed by March 2019.
Many businesses are preparing to move jobs and investment out of the U.K. in early 2018 if trade talks
haven't started.
The pound, which had gained on hopes of progress in the talks,
dropped 0.7% against the dollar on Tuesday.

Movie merger: U.K. theater operator Cineworld has struck a deal to buy Regal Entertainment Group (RGC)
for $3.6 billion.
The deal will give Cineworld access to the largest box office market in the world.
The combined company will have more than 9,500 screens across Europe and the U.S.
Shares in Cineworld were off by less than 1% in London.

Global market overview: U.S. stock futures were mixed.
European markets were in positive territory. Britain's FTSE 100,
which is stocked with exporters that love a weaker pound, added 0.3%.

Asian markets ended with losses.
The Shanghai Composite was particularly hard hit, shedding nearly 2%.

DOW -40.76 Tuesday (-)

Cnn Money:

Fox hunt continues: Is Disney close to a deal with 21st Century Fox?
Disney (DIS) is reportedly in advanced discussions to buy parts of the
media behemoth controlled by the family of Rupert Murdoch.
Shares in Disney dropped 3% on Tuesday after CNBC reported that it could
buy Fox (FOX) assets including its movie studio, FX, National Geographic
and Indian business Star.
Speculation reached a fever pitch after the Financial Times said that Murdoch's
son James could join Disney as part of the deal, and perhaps succeed CEO Bob Iger.
The two companies have declined to comment, but investors won't be changing the channel.

Retail trouble: Shares in Steinhoff International plunged as much as 60% on Wednesday.
Steinhoff isn't a household name in the U.S. But the retailer is a major player in Africa
and Europe, where its holdings include the U.K.'s Poundland.
CEO Markus Jooste resigned on Wednesday and the company announced an investigation
into "accounting irregularities."
Steinhoff also delayed its annual results, saying it would publish "when it is in a position to do so."

Global markets drop: It's shaping up to be a tough day for stocks.
U.S. stock futures were lower. European markets were awash in red,
following the mood set in Asia.
The benchmark Shanghai Composite was about the only index to buck the trend,
posting a gain of nearly 0.7%.

U.S. oil futures dropped 0.4% to trade near $57 per barrel.
aq suffered smaller losses.

But wait!
Bitcoin is back: Bitcoin has surged above $12,000 for the first time.

The digital currency is up 1,100% since the start of the year --
despite leading figures in finance and economics warning of a bubble.

Companies and economics: American Eagle (AEO) and H&R Block (HRB)
will release earnings before the open, while Broadcom (AVGO) and lululemon (LULU)
will follow after the close.


Canada's central bank will announce an interest rates decision at 10 a.m. ET.

The Australian dollar dropped against other major currencies after new data
showed the economy grew slower than expected in the third quarter.
Australia has not suffered a recession, defined as two consecutive quarters of contraction,
since 1991.

DOW -39.73Wednesday(+)

Cnn Money:

How to hunt a Fox: The latest wrinkle in the race to acquire 21st Century Fox's entertainment
assets involves Disney boss Bob Iger.
The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that Iger is likely to extend his
tenure as CEO beyond his 2019 retirement date if Disney (DIS) lands the Fox (FOX) assets.
Comcast is also said to be exploring a bid for the assets,
which likely include Fox's movie studio, FX, National Geographic and Indian business Star.
Why does this matter?
Iger has repeatedly extended his tenure in recent years amid a troubled search for a successor.
The Financial Times reported earlier this week that James Murdoch, the current chief executive
of Fox, could join Disney as part of the deal. The newspaper suggested he could even succeed Iger.

Bitcoin hits $15,000: Another day, another bitcoin (XBT) record.
The digital currency has shot above the $15,000 mark for the first time --
the fourth big barrier it's broken in less than two days.

It had already zipped past $12,000, $13,000 and $14,000 within 24 hours before hitting $15,000
on Thursday morning in New York.
Despite a flurry of warnings from top economists and business leaders,
its upward trajectory has continued -- albeit with a few sharp dips along the way.
After breaking above $11,000 last week, it abruptly plunged by more than $2,000 before resuming
its climb. Buyer beware!

Brexit bites: British Prime Minister Theresa May is trying again to make progress on the Irish border,
one of three key issues that must be addressed before negotiators can discuss trade terms with the EU.
May is racing to get a deal before a key EU summit next week.
But she is being hobbled by divisions within her own party, which remains at loggerheads over its plans for Brexit.
Opposition lawmakers aren't happy either: They've been angered by news that the government department
charged with negotiating Brexit hasn't examined its potential economic impact.
The pound, which has been under pressure all week, dropped 0.1%.


Media deal in court: AT&T (T) and the U.S. Department of Justice will be in court on Thursday.
The Justice Department filed a suit to block AT&T's bid to buy Time Warner (TWX), CNN's parent
company, citing antitrust concerns. The first big question the judge needs to decide is when
to schedule a trial. The two sides disagree when that should be.
The case could have implications for other big mergers, including CVS' (CVS) $69 billion acquisition
of Aetna (AET).

Market overview: European markets were higher in early trade,
but gains were limited to less than 1%. Asian markets were mixed,
with Japan's Nikkei adding 1.5%.

U.S. stock futures were higher.

Earnings and economics: Dollar General (DG) will release earnings before the open.
Firearms manufacturer American Outdoor Brands (AOBC), formerly known as Smith & Wesson,
will report after the close.

Cnn Money:

Brexit breakthrough: Britain and the European Union reached a Brexit milestone on Friday,
breaking a deadlock that allows talks to move onto a crucial second phase.
Negotiations will now turn to trade and the terms of a transition that would
allow businesses in the U.K. to adapt to life outside the bloc.
The pound posted a mild reaction to the deal, gaining 0.2% against the dollar.
"Let's remember that the most difficult challenge still ahead,"
said European President Donald Tusk. "Breaking up is hard.
But breaking up and building a new relationship is much harder."


Jobs report:
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics will release November's jobs report at 8:30am(Eastern)

The economy has added roughly 1.7 million jobs so far in 2017.
In October, 261,000 jobs were created -- making it the best month for job growth since
President Trump took office.
But wages continue to disappoint. Last month, they grew by just 2.4% compared to the
same period last year, even lower than September's growth rate.


Shutdown averted, for now: The dollar edged higher against other major currencies after
lawmakers voted for a short-term spending bill that will keep the federal government running
for another two weeks.
The major obstacle is what comes after December 22, when the government runs out of money
once again. another two weeks.
All eyes will be on the White House, as Trump and top congressional leaders
try to resolve policy differences so Congress can pass a long-term spending bill before Christmas.



Global overview: Stocks markets are closing out the week with a bang.
U.S. stock futures were higher.
Major European and Asian markets were in positive territory.

U.S. crude oil futures gained 0.7% to trade just above $57 per barrel.

The one big loser of the day was bitcoin, which continued its wild ride.
It plunged more than $2,500 after hitting new record on Thursday.


Companies and economics: Shares in Japan Display shot up 9% in Tokyo
on a report that Apple (AAPL) might start using LCD screens in future smartphones.


Chinese exports and imports data came out stronger than expected, pointing
to healthy global trade.
"We expect exports to continue to perform well in the coming months
n the back of strong global demand," said Julian Evans-Pritchard,
China Economist at Capital Economics.

Cnn Money:

Bitcoin evolution: Bitcoin futures are live.
Cboe Global Markets, a top U.S. owner of financial exchanges,
began offering bitcoin futures on Sunday, allowing investors to speculate
on whether the digital currency's price will rise or fall.
Bitcoin itself got a lift from the new activity on the Chicago exchange.
It jumped about 8% in less than 10 minutes -- to more than $15,700 -- after the trading began.
Prices zoomed past $16,600 by early Monday morning, according to data from CoinDesk.
Bitcoin is up around 1,500% so far this year, but many analysts are warning the market
is a bubble.
On the futures exchange, contracts expiring next month were trading at roughly $17,500.


Big week for central banks:
The Federal Reserve, the Bank of England and the European Central bank
will each announce rate decisions this week.
The Fed promises to be the main event: Investors expect rates to go up
at the final meeting chaired by Janet Yellen.
The BOE and ECB are not expected to change policy, but they might give
more details on their plans for 2018.
The three central banks are now moving broadly in the same direction,
raising interest rates and unwinding stimulus programs.
Central banks pumped have pumped stimulus worth $11 trillion
into the global financial system since the 2008 crisis,
according to JPMorgan.

Global market overview: U.S. stock futures were higher.
European markets opened in positive territory,
while Asian markets ended their session with gains.

U.S. crude oil futures were 0.7% lower at below $57 per barrel.

GDP growth in Turkey hit 11.5% in the third quarter, its quickest pace in six years.
But there was a caveat.
"The sharp pick-up was flattered by the comparison with third quarter of last year,
when output was disrupted by the coup attempt," said William Jackson,
senior emerging markets economist at Capital Economics.

Shares in BAE Systems (BAESF) jumped 0.8% in London after the defense contractor
announced it had sold 24 Typhoon aircraft to Qatar.
The deal is valued at £5 billion ($6.7 billion)

DOW +56.87Monday(+)

Cnn Money:

Energy trouble: Oil prices jumped Tuesday after a key pipeline in Europe was closed because of a leak.
The problem with the 235-mile Forties Pipeline System, which carries almost 40% of the North Sea's oil
and gas output, was discovered during an inspection on December 6.
The crack has since extended, forcing owner INEOS to shut the pipeline for repairs.
The company said only a small amount of oil seepage has been reported.
Oil that flows through the North Sea pipeline helps set the price of Brent crude, which jumped 1%
on Monday to a two-year high above $65 per barrel.
U.S. crude futures, which are priced in Oklahoma, rose less than 1% to trade at $58.50.


Meanwhile, an explosion was reported at a natural gas facility in Austria.
Gas Connect Austria said that a serious fire resulted, but the plant was shut
down in a controlled manner.

Climate moves:
French President Emmanuel Macron is hosting a summit to mark the second anniversary
of the Paris Climate agreement.

Business leaders are watching the meeting closely -- nearly 1,200 companies have already
promised to align their business plans with the Paris Agreement, according to We Mean Business
coalition.

It's not just Paris: Exxon Mobil (XOM) said in a regulatory filing on Monday that it will start offering
more details on how climate change could affect its business.

Yellen's long goodbye: The U.S. Federal Reserve starts its final two-day meeting of the year on Tuesday.
It seems all but certain the central bank will raise its key interest rate one last before chair Janet Yellen's
planned departure.
The Fed has already raised rates twice this year, first in March and again in June.

Global market overview: U.S. stock futures were flat.

Companies and economics: Comcast (CCVCL) has dropped out of the running to buy a majority
of 21st Century Fox (FOX), clearing the path for Disney (DIS) to buy its prized entertainment
and sports assets.

European property investor Unibail-Rodamco (UNBLF) said it has struck at $15.8 billion deal for
Westfield Corporation (WEFIF), an Australian company that also operates malls in Europe and the U.S.

Shares in Unibail-Rodamco dropped 3.3%.

U.K. inflation hit 3.1% in November, according to the Office for National Statistics.
That's up from 3% in October 2017, and the highest reading since March 2012.

catch the trade winds in your sails.

DOW +118.77Monday(+)

Cnn Money:

Upset in Alabama: The dollar took a minor hit after Doug Jones
the first Democrat in 25 years to win a Senate seat in Alabama.
Why it matters: The result shrinks the Republican majority in the Senate
to a single seat, spelling trouble for President Trump's legislative agenda.
"Significant fiscal easing just got harder and there's nothing here to help the dollar,"
said Kit Juckes, a strategist at Societe Generale.
The result also has major implications for 2018. Democrats are now only two seats
away from a majority in the Senate, an outcome that was unthinkable at the start of the year.


Fed's decision day: The U.S. Federal Reserve is widely expected to raise interest rates at its
final meeting of the year.
With the rate hike almost certain, investors will be looking for clues on 2018
and beyond during the final press conference by outgoing chair Janet Yellen.
The central bank has only raised interest rates five times since the 2008 financial crisis.
Two have come this year -- first in March and again in June.

Oil watch: Investors will check OPEC's monthly report to see if producers are sticking to output
cuts designed to reduce a massive oil glut.
OPEC and major producers including Russia agreed last month
to extend the curbs by nine months until the end of 2018.
U.S. crude futures were almost 1% higher at $57.70 per barrel.

Global market overview: U.S. stock futures were flat.
European markets opened lower, while Asian markets ended mixed.

Companies and economics: Shares in Westfield (WEFIF), an Australian firm
that operates 33 malls across the U.S., gained 14% in Sydney.
It was purchased Tuesday by Unibail-Rodamco, a European property investment
firm based in France.

U.K. unemployment was 4.3% in the three months ended October,
matching its lowest level since 1975.
However, there were 56,000 fewer people in work compared to the previous quarter.
The number of people of working age who were classified as economically inactive
also increased by 115,000.

Dow Futures currently +17.00

Have found out the hard way, best not to short the Dow while hitting new highs.

DOW +118.77Monday(+)

Cnn Money:

Media deal: Disney is widely expected to announce Thursday that it will purchase
a major chunk of Rupert Murdoch's entertainment empire.
I the deal shapes up as reported, it will shake the media industry to its core.
Disney (DIS) is expected to buy Fox's movie studio, its regional sports networks,
the cable channels FX and National Geographic as well as Star India and Fox's
stake in European pay-TV provider Sky.
Fox (FOX) would keep its news divisions including Fox News and Fox Business,
as well as its broadcast network and the local stations it owns and the cable
channel Fox Sports.
Yet there are many outstanding questions: What does the deal mean for Disney
CEO Bob Iger?
And how will it shape Murdoch's legacy?

Net neutrality decision: The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
is set to vote Thursday on a repeal of Obama-era net neutrality protections.
Net neutrality rules bar internet providers like Comcast (CCVCL) and AT&T (T)
from deliberately speeding up or slowing down traffic from specific websites
and apps in order to prioritize their own content.
FCC chairman Ajit Pai's plan would lift those bans -- and likely boost those companies.
(AT&T is in the process of acquiring Time Warner, which owns CNN.)
Democrats have called on the FCC to delay the vote.

3Central bank time: The U.S. Federal Reserve raised interest rates on Wednesday.
Investors attention now turns to the European Central Bank and the Bank of England.

The central banks are not expected to announce rate hikes, but investors
will be looking for hints on their strategy for the coming year.


Global market overview: U.S. stock futures were higher.
European markets opened mostly lower, while Asian markets ended mixed.
The Dow Jones industrial average hit a record high and moved closer to 25,000 on
Wednesday after Congressional leaders struck a tentative tax overhaul deal.


Earnings and economics: Costco (COST), Adobe (ADBE) and Oracle (ORCL)
will release their results after the closing bell.


The International Energy Agency said it expects U.S. oil production to rise again in 2018.
It predicts that global supply will grow at faster rate than demand next year.
"2018 may not necessarily be a happy New Year for those who would like to see a tighter market,"
the agency said in a report.

There's more good news in Germany:
The IFO Institute has raised its growth forecast for 2018 from 2% to 2.6%
"The German economy is in great shape," said IFO President Clemens Fuest.

European Union leaders are gathering for a summit in Brussels on Thursday and Friday.
High on their agenda: Brexit.

DOW -76.77Thursday(-)

Cnn Money:

Mighty Mouse: Disney is spending $52 billion for most of 21st Century Fox,
but there are still some unanswered questions about the blockbuster deal.
What will regulators think? One issue is the sheer number of media properties
the deal would bring together.
The U.S. Justice Department will consider to what extent the new company
could dominate the market and use its increased leverage to force cable companies
and other distributors to pay more to carry Disney (DIS) and Fox content.
What will happen to James Murdoch?
There had been some speculation that Rupert Murdoch's son James,
currently CEO of 21st Century Fox (FOX), would move over to Disney in a senior role,
possibly as successor to CEO Bob Iger. But in a conference call with investors,
Iger said that no immediate plans had been developed.
And what about Fox's $15 billion deal for European pay TV provider Sky (SKYAY)?
That takeover was announced a year ago, but has suffered from a series of delays.
Disney says that Fox will work to push the deal through.
Analysts say it might not be that simple.


Unions at Ryanair: The budget airline that built its business around minimal perks --
for customers and employees -- said Friday that it would recognize pilot labor unions
for the first time.
Ryanair (RYAAY) pilots in Ireland, Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain and Portugal
will now have more power to bargain with the airline.
The move is designed to head off a strike by pilots during the crucial holiday travel period.
"Putting the needs of our customers first, and avoiding disruption to their Christmas flights,
is the reason why we will now deal with our pilots through recognized national union structures,"
CEO Michael O'Leary said in a statement.

Speaking of planes: There's been a major leadership shakeup at Airbus (EADSF),
and current COO Fabrice Brégier appears to have been left standing when the music stopped.
Airbus said in a statement that Brégier, president of the company's commercial aircraft business,
will leave the company. He had been touted as a possible successor to CEO Tom Enders,
who will stand down in April 2019.
Guillaume Faury, who heads the company's helicopter division,
was named as the next leader of the commercial airline business.
Could he now be next in line for the top gig?
Airbus said it will consider insiders and external candidates for CEO in 2018.


Global market overview: U.S. stock futures were higher.
European stocks were mixed in early trade,
while most Asian markets ended in negative territory.

Investors are largely being left to their own devices.
There are no major earnings reports on the agenda and
the economic data cupboard is bare.

DOW +143.08 Friday(+)

Cnn Money:

Dow 25,000 watch: The Dow Jones industrial average might hit yet another milestone this week,
especially if Congress passes the package of tax cuts that has seriously fired up Wall Street.
The Dow has hit plenty of records since President Trump took office,
passing 24,000 just three weeks ago.
The index has nearly quadrupled since the financial crisis low,
with most of the gains occurring prior to Trump's election.
U.S. stock futures were pointing higher on Monday.

Bitcoin futures:
CME, the derivatives marketplace, kicked off electronic bitcoin futures trading
on Sunday, a week after futures trading began on the Chicago Board Options Exchange.
Investors see the involvement of top financial institutions as a sign of growing
mainstream acceptance -- even as government officials, business leaders and economists
continue to warn against investing in it.
The digital currency is still extremely volatile.
It jumped to within a few hundred dollars of the $20,000 mark on Sunday before
slipping back sharply. By early Monday, it was trading well below $19,000.


Brexit decisions: What kind of relationship does Britain want with the EU,
its biggest export market?
Prime Minister Theresa May will discuss the vital question with cabinet members on Monday.
There are two camps: Those who want to negotiate continued easy access to EU markets,
and those who want to break free from EU regulation even if it means accepting new barriers
to trade.
Both scenarios come with risks and consequences that are
likely to upset factions within May's Conservative party.
The pound edged up to trade above $1.33.


Global market overview: European markets were in positive territory.
Asian markets ended mixed.
U.S. crude futures gained 0.5% to trade at $57.50 per barrel.

Companies and economics: The European Commission is set to launch
a formal probe into Ikea's tax affairs, according to reports in the
Financial Times and Politico.

Eurozone inflation data is expected at 5:00 a.m. ET

Party leaders agreed on the final text of their tax bill last week and made
it public on Friday. The House is expected to vote on Tuesday, and the Senate
will follow soon after.The bill, which is expected to pass on party lines, could be
on President Trump's desk before Christmas.

Markets surge: All three main U.S. stock indexes hit record highs on Monday
as investors cheered the tax bill's progress.
The Dow, which has jumped more than 25% in 2017,
is now within touching distance of 25,000 points.
The measure drops the corporate tax rate to 21% from 35%,
repeals the corporate alternative minimum tax and restructures
the way pass-through businesses are taxed.
Stocks have rallied this year because of strong economic growth and
hopes that Trump would roll back regulations and overhaul the tax code.
U.S. stock futures were pointing higher on Tuesday.

Bombardier tariff ruling:
The U.S. Department of Commerce is set to rule on tariffs that could be placed
on Bombardier's C-series passenger jet.
Boeing launched a trade complaint against Bombardier earlier this year,
accusing its Canadian rival of selling the C Series airliner at "absurdly low prices."
Bombardier denies that it has engaged in unfair trade practices.

DOW -37.45 Tuesday (+)

Cnn Money:

Trump's first big legislative win: Stocks markets are loving the tax bill.
U.S. futures were pointing higher Wednesday after the Senate approved the final version
of the biggest tax code overhaul in over 30 years.
The bill now heads back to the House for one more vote before landing on President Trump's desk.
The plan drops the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%, repeals the corporate alternative minimum tax,
nearly doubles the standard deduction for individuals and restructures the way pass-through
businesses are taxed.
The bill keeps seven personal income tax brackets. It lowers tax rates for most of the brackets,
including dropping the top rate to 37% from 39.6%.
Critics say the bill is heavily weighted to ease the tax burden of businesses rather than the middle class.
It has also been criticized for being at odds with international trade laws.


Uber setback in Europe: Uber has suffered a major setback after Europe's top court ruled
that it should be regulated as a transportation firm.
Uber had argued it is a tech company, not a taxi service.
The startup is likely to face more regulatory oversight as a taxi company.


Bitcoin tumbles: Bitcoin dropped below $17,000 on Wednesday,
according to pricing service Coindesk.
he digital currency had been trading near $20,000 earlier this week.
Bitcoin prices are extremely volatile, and experts have warned the markets
is a bubble. On Wednesday, a bitcoin exchange in South Korea closed up shop
after being hacked.

Global market overview: European markets opened mostly lower.
Asian markets ended the session mixed.

U.S. crude futures were 0.4% higher at $57.70 per barrel.

Happy Holidays Bostongambler,

Good to hear from ya.
Took it on the chin yesterday, but with these corporate tax cuts,
looks like some Bullish days ahead.
Quite abit of craziness in the Crypto Markets, hard to believe how much
some of them have skyrocketed.
Will Bitcoin go to a Million or to zero?
The jury is still out on that one.
Time will tell.
Presidente Trump?, well that´s another subject that would take more time
then I have at the moment, but safe to say, he's a different kind of President.
Hard to believe that I`m still posting after all these years,
kind of out of respect for the Major, whom we all miss.

take care and wishing you the best,

baz

DOW -28.10 Wednesday (-)

Cnn Money:

Shutdown for Christmas?
Republicans scored a big win this week by passing a sweeping overhaul of the U.S. tax system.
But they'll need to act quickly to avoid a government shutdown.
Congress must pass a stopgap funding bill before midnight on Friday,
or risk an embarrassing closure of government agencies.
Republicans in the House and Senate -- who have competing legislative priorities --
were still at loggerheads over a potential deal on Wednesday evening.
One potential outcome is another short-term budget extension that will keep funding
at current levels.


Election in Catalonia: The Spanish autonomous region of Catalonia will choose
a new local government on Thursday.
The vote was called in October when Madrid took control the Catalan government
after lawmakers there made a unilateral declaration of independence.
The saga has taken a toll on Spanish markets and revived fears about
the stability of the eurozone.


Brexit weakness: The number of cars manufactured in Britain fell 4.6% in November,
according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.
Domestic demand for cars declined more than 28% from the previous year,
while exports rose 1.3%.
The industry group blamed a lack of clarity over Brexit for the weakness.
The British government has not said what kind of a trade deal will it seek with the EU --
its biggest trading partner -- after it leaves the bloc in March 2019.


Global market overview: U.S. stock futures were flat.
European markets opened lower, while Asian markets ended mixed.


Earnings and economics: CarMax (KMX), ConAgra (CAG) and Finish Line (FINL)
will publish earnings before the open. NIKE (NKE) will follow after the close.


The Bank of Japan left key interest rates unchanged at its meeting.

Dow Futures currently +34.00

DOW -28.10 Thursday(+)

Cnn Money:

Dow 25,000?:
The Dow has been flirting with the 25,000 point barrier for a few trading sessions now.

Will it go over the top on Friday? U.S. stock futures were pointing higher,
but the index will still need to gain roughly 218 points to reach the milestone.
Regardless, investors have a lot to be thankful for.
The Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq have all gained 20% to 30% so far in 2017,
and each has hit a record high this week.

Global stock markets: European markets dipped in early trading.
Spain's benchmark IBEX 35 led the way with a drop of roughly 1%.
Investors are nervous about the future of the Spanish region of Catalonia,
where voters backed pro-independence parties during an election on Thursday.
The euro lost ground against other major currencies following the vote.
Most Asian markets ended the day with gains.

Bitcoin's wild ride:
Bitcoin prices briefly plunged below $13,000 on Friday,
capping a stunning 24 hours in which the digital currency lost as much as 25% of its value,
according to data from CoinDesk.com.
Prices, which had approached $20,000 as recently as Sunday,
bounced back to trade around $14,000 by mid-morning in London.
The turbulence comes on the back of a few days of bad news for bitcoin,
which has still soared by more than 1,300% since the start of the year.


Shutdown averted:
The Senate approved a short-term spending measure Thursday night to keep
the government open through January 19, avoiding a government shutdown ahead
of a Friday deadline.


Departure lounge: Eric Schmidt is stepping aside as executive chairman of Alphabet (GOOGL),
the parent company of Google. Schmidt, who has been with the company for 17 years,
will remain on the board and continue to serve as a technical adviser.
He was previously CEO of Google.

Turning from tech to pizza, Papa John's (PZZA) founder John Schnatter will step down as CEO.
Schnatter will stay on with the company as its chairman. Steve Ritchie,
the current chief operating officer, will take over as CEO on January 1.
The shakeup comes after a string of public relations debacles and slumping sales.

6Takeover bet: London-based gambling firm Ladbrokes Coral Group announced it
has agreed to be acquired by another British gambling firm, GVC Holdings.
The deal is valued at roughly £3.2 billion ($4.3 billion).
Shares in Ladbrokes surged earlier this month when it said it was in
"detailed discussions regarding the possible combination of the two businesses."

DOW Futures currently +26.00

Going with UP on Friday,

gl and Happy Holidays,

DOW -28.23 Friday(-)

Cnn Money:

And we're back: Investors are returning from the holiday break to a full day
of trading in the United States.
U.S. stock futures were flat, and trading volumes are expected to be thin.
A smattering of Asia markets were back in business, but trading was muted.
Most European markets will reopen on Wednesday.
Investors and traders may still be in holiday mode,
but shoppers will be out in force on Tuesday.

U.S. retailers are offering steep discounts in after-Christmas sales --
both in store and online. Meanwhile, Boxing Day discounts are taking
center stage in Europe and Canada too.

Elsewhere in markets:
Natural gas prices rallied by 3% in New York after taking a sharp fall over the past month.
And bitcoin has popped back above $15,000 as the digital currency continues its recovery.

Friday market recap: The Dow Jones industrial average,
S&P 500 and Nasdaq all dipped by 0.1% on Friday,
edging away from record highs set earlier in the month.
Still, it's been a merry year in the markets, with the Dow up an impressive 25%.
The S&P 500 has zoomed up 20% this year and the Nasdaq has left both behind,
with a surge of nearly 30%.

Debt troubles: China's government is demanding a tech tycoon come home and face the music.
The country's markets watchdog on Monday night ordered LeEco founder Jia Yueting to return
to the country before the end of the year in order to fix his flailing business empire's financial woes.

Once dubbed the Netflix (NFLX) of China, LeEco expanded into a head-spinning array of industries,
ranging from movies to smartphones and transportation before unchecked debt grounded its ambitions.

DOW -7.85 Tuesday (+)

Cnn Money:

Steady stocks:
Investors have bid up U.S. stock markets to record highs this month
but it doesn't look like they're going to move much further on Wednesday.
U.S. stock futures are holding steady.
The Dow Jones industrial average is about 100 points away from an all-time high.

European markets are mixed in early trading.
Most Asian markets ended the day with gains, though the key stock indexes
in mainland China dipped a bit.

Crude watch: Traders are keeping their eyes on oil after crude prices
rallied to $60 a barrel on Tuesday for the first time in two and a half years.
Prices spiked after a pipeline exploded in Libya.
Crude futures are down a tad in early morning trading, just below the $60 level.

Top shipbuilder sinks: Hyundai Heavy Industries, parent company of the world's largest shipbuilder,
saw its stock price plummet around 29% on Wednesday, after announcing a plan to sell shares
worth 1.3 trillion won ($1.2 billion) in an effort to raise money for its operations.
The outlook for the firm is not great: The company forecast sales would slump
in 2017 to 15.4 trillion won ($14.3 billion), down by more than 50% from 2016.
It also expects sales to keep falling in 2018.

Bouncing Bitcoin: Bitcoin prices remain volatile Wednesday, with the price
of a single coin rallying to nearly $16,500 overnight and then quickly dropping
again below the $16,000 level.
The price nearly hit $20,000 per coin last weekend before slumping to around $12,000.

DOW +28.09 Wednesday(+)

Cnn Money:

Bitcoin chills:
Bitcoin prices are slumping again after South Korea announced a clampdown on the cryptocurrency.
The country's government said Thursday it was putting in place measures to cool speculation in bitcoin,
which has surged by more than 1,300% in 2017.
The measures include a ban on opening anonymous virtual currency accounts
and new laws giving authorities the power to shut down digital currency exchanges.
Bitcoin's value plunged more than 10% to below $14,000 on Thursday morning in Asia,
according to CoinDesk.com, and continues to be volatile.


Dollar dip: The U.S. dollar has been steadily weakening this year and the trend
is continuing this morning. The greenback is down by about
0.4% versus many major global currencies, including the euro,
British pound and Canadian dollar.
The U.S. dollar index -- which tracks the dollar's performance versus global currencies --
is down by about 11% from its peak at the start of the year.


Global stock market overview:
U.S. stock futures are indicating stocks could have a positive day on Thursday,
but the gains could be very small.
European markets are mostly dipping in early trading, though the moves are modest.

Most Asian markets ended the day with gains.

This follows quiet holiday trading in the U.S. The Dow Jones industrial average,
S&P 500 and Nasdaq all eked out tiny gains on Wednesday.
Trading volume at this time of year is usually low.
The top U.S. indexes are all up by 20% to 29% in 2017.
