Treasury yields rose as job market data reinforced the view that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates later this year. Crude fell below $35 a barrel after earlier hitting a two-month high. Government data showed inventories rose by 10.4 million barrels to 518 million in the week to Feb. 26, almost triple the 3.6 million-barrel increase expected by analysts. Asian stocks rose overnight to a two-month high with Japan’s and China’s main indexes both up more than 4 percent.   The European Central Bank will review its stimulus next week against a background of heightened economic risks and weaker-than-expected inflation.

For the SPX, the day’s volume was 76.2% of the average daily volume for the last year. Volume was 85.5% of the last 10 day average and 87.6% of the previous day’s volume. Today marked the lowest trading volume of the year. Last week you will remember there were solar flares. There was some speculation the solar storms might cause damage to the electric grid, possibly damaging electronic gadgets, possibly interfering with radio signals. Turns out it is far, far worse than imagine. The reality is that the earth has been knocked from its orbit around the sun; we are now hurtling through the cosmos with no set path. You want proof? O.K., Louis Freeh is the former FBI Director and current trustee for the MF Global bankruptcy case. Freeh has announced plans to pay $1 million in bonuses to Bradley Abelow, MF’s chief operating officer, Laurie Ferber, the general counsel and Henri Steenkamp, chief financial officer; they could make more if salaries and other incentives are approved.
