Wednesday: The MBA will release the mortgage purchase applications index. This has been falling sharply suggesting a sharp decline in home sales after the expiration of the tax credit. Also on Wednesday, Wholesale Inventories and the Fed’s Beige Book will be released.

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke will testify at 10 AM before the house budget committee (the hearing is about the State of the Economy: View from the Federal Reserve), and the NY Fed’s Brian Sack will speak at noon at the New York Association of Business Economics.

The Asian markets are mixed tonight.

The CNBC Pre-Market Data shows the S&P 500 down 6 points and the Dow futures are down about 60 points.

The Euro is down slightly at 1.195 dollars

Best to all.
