93 cents looks like resistance before any push higher. This afternoon’s China data might be a catalyst and certainly the media seems to think it’s going to be awesome. I’m more circumspect. The last year or so has seen fairly minor moves in Chinese data even if markets have greatly exaggerated them. I expect a modest improvement only.
