The market is now up around 1% across the board as the dollar has slid near $1.10 against the euro after being under $1.05 last week. Commodities are getting a long overdue bounce, with oil is up 5% on WTI now, even as supply concerns persist.

Still looking at an up opening as we are only an hour away now from the opening bell.  Lower gas prices certainly making their way into better restaurant sales.
