9th Apr - Monday is Holiday

From the ZeroHedge's article, link below
Here are Monday's most relevant articles. Another bear day for the stocks, US bonds have risen to the bottom of their previous trading range. EURUSD at 1.31, still within the 1.3-1.34 trading range. Good time to go long stocks, short bonds, long EUR?  The true thing what everyone is waiting for is obviously the opening of the European bond markets. Any more pain in Spain and somebody has to come out with IMF/China/Super Death Star Destroyer rumors.

Previously during the weekend:

Weekly Support weekly summaries, calendars and previews

Weekender: Euro Crisis: Recent articles have a terribly negative sentiment, and no wonder – the spreads become much worse and the firewall is not getting much respect either.

Weekender: Economics: There were no absolute must-reads this weekend, but as the US data has softened up recently, estimating the probability of QE is probably the most important thing to do during the next couple of weeks.

Weekender: Trading & Markets: Some nice articles on whose fault it all was, who you can trust, centralized clearing etc.

Weekender: Off-Topic: not markets-related
