THIS WEEK IN THE MARKETS. WHEN GOOD NEWS IS BAD NEWS.

The coming 2 weeks are going to be a challenging for the markets. Next week the all important Consumer Price Index for January will be released. The following week the retail sales estimate for January will be released. If the CPI comes in as expected or higher this will be bad for the markets. And if this is followed by a weaker than expected retail number the markets will be under siege. If however the CPI number comes in better than expected, the fall out from the retail sales number will be less severe.
