GDPhursday – Fiscal Cliff Progress Good for 200 Points Ahead of GDP

Posted on the 29 November 2012 by Phil's Stock World @philstockworld

The Dow opened yesterday and quickly dropped to 12,760 but we finished the day at 12,984 as both John Boehner and President Obama made nice noises about the ongoing Fiscal Cliff talks.  Since then, we've had another 100 points of follow-through in the Futures and, as I commented in Member Chat yesterday, this is all very, very brave action ahead of the 8:30 GDP report, which is expected to show Q3 growth of 2.8% but, based on yesterday's Beige Book (see our commentary here) may come in closer to 2.4%.

If we can avoid or get past that disappointment, THEN we can put a rally together on happy talk out of Washington
