    Market bounced. Following a 5.7% fall at Tallinn Stock Exchange on Thursday, the market recovered on Friday. The index OMXT closed up 1.0%, with more shares ending in green than in red. Eesti Ehitus was the biggest gainer with shares closing up 6.3%. They were followed by Olympic Casino (+4.5%) and Tallinna Kaubamaja (3.4%). A dead cat bounce? We think it is too early to get to the conclusions.

    Latvia’s GDP growth at 11.9%. According to a preliminary CSB estimate, Latvia's economy continued to surge last year, with GDP growth peaking at 11.9% in Q4/06 yoy. But economists, including at the country's central bank, have warned of possible overheating. Many say that strong consumer demand endangers the country's ability to produce enough, which threatens a widening current account deficit. High inflation is also of concern (ca 7.1% in Jan). Estonia’s preliminary Q4 GDP is due tomorrow.

    Finnish construction workers in Estonia. For some time now, Estonian construction workers have left for Finland for higher wages. However, the situation seems to be turning. Daily Eesti Paevaleht writes that an Estonian company now brings Finnish workers to Estonia, since the wage level there is lower than Estonia’s. Finnish construction workers are involved in Tornimae twin-tower project for example.

    As Earnings End, Where the Mo May Go

    "Life has meaning only in the struggle. Triumph or defeat is in the hands of the Gods. So let us celebrate the struggle."

    -- Swami Sivananda

    The market advance is facing more headwinds: earnings season is winding down, positive seasonality is slowing, news catalysts are evaporating, and the rally from last summer is aging. Although all the major indices are still within a stone's throw of recent highs, the upside has been limited -- particularly in the Nasdaq, which has not done anything for a couple months now.

    The dilemma of the market is that in the bigger scheme of things, the indices are still holding up very well. Although the bears have made some successful forays like we saw on Friday, they have not be able to really pressure the market. The most notable weakness has been the steady selling in big caps like MSFT, GOOG and AAPL following their strong earnings reports.

    The fact that these leaders have been unable to attract attention although they have had good news indicates a change in mood. So far that mood change has been mostly contained and has not hurt the momentum favorites or small-caps.

    The poor action on Friday in Momo-land and in the small-caps might just be another temporary victory for the bears but it was enough to warrant our attention and a little extra caution. Time and again the bulls have sprung back to life just as it looked like the bears were ready to push the market over the edge. Anticipating that the market is about to roll over has been a very difficult game but given some of the recent action it is hard to dismiss the possibility that the bears are finally due for success.

    One consideration to keep in mind right now is that with earnings season over there are not a lot of market catalysts, so comments from the Fed and economic reports can cause some rather dramatic changes in mood. The market had very positive news flow for a while and that has resulted in a lot of buying and created a certain level of complacency. It is tough for the positive mood to continue unabated. That doesn't mean the market falls apart but it may make for much more choppier and uncertain trading like we saw on Friday.

    We have a slightly weak start this Monday morning. Oil is down due to comments from the Saudis, and overseas markets are mostly weak. There are a couple of mergers and takeovers on the wires but they aren't having much overall impact. Apple has an upgrade but overall are fairly quiet.
