Positive US economic data and Apple poor earning was divided for US markets while Asian bourses also trying to find for lead.  Singapore reported December Industrial Output this afternoon coming in at -0.6% vs -4.8% expected.  The better than expected data coupling with some of the more positive corporate earning helped lifted the stocks.

Market in general is trying to digest corporate earning at the moment.
