M&A news is dominating the market, with three potential deals reportedly in the works.
The market looks like it is going to open pretty flat today based on current pre-market future levels. General Electric (GE) will not be a tailwind after the giant industrial concern trimmed its forward revenue forecast due to an anemic global demand picture. Going in the opposite direction is Moody's (MCO) , which easily beat both the top- and bottom-line consensus and raised guidance to boot. McDonald's (MCD) also should boost the indices after a solid quarter featuring 3.5% global same-store sales growth.
MCO could decline to the $80 level before we would expect some support to develop.
