Stocks ended higher as investors digested positive economic news as the U.S. dollar climbed to a seven month high on Wednesday.   A weak Italian bond auction and disappointing data on euro zone factory output hurt the euro.

On the economic front, retail sales in February were strong, up 1.1%, despite payroll tax increases and delayed income tax returns. The bump came from gasoline prices and auto sales.

A heavy build in retail vehicles is a major factor behind business inventories rise of 1.0%.  The 1.9% increase in retail auto & parts reflects strong demand for autos.

Have a good Wednesday night!                                           ...

We’re venturing into new territory!  On February 14th (yes…Valentine’s Day because we’re so in love with the idea) NYSE’s Global Market Data group announced a partnership with Social Market Analytics (SMA) to distribute their Sentiment Signature products via our global SFTI network.

We have previously partnered with other firms to launch analytical data products, but nothing quite like this. Now we’re venturing into a largely uncharted and exciting new place - social media. To say we’re excited about the possibilities would be an understatement. Social media is just beginning to take hold in financial markets.
