- After opening higher markets have slid back into the red in mid market trading, while European indices are giving up all their session gains to close at their lows. Early strength in the US followed overnight gains in Asia and Europe that followed the stronger-than-expected December China trade numbers. However, sentiment has turned negative.

- There were no surprises in either the BOE or ECB rate decisions as both banks left key rates unchanged. At the ECB press conference, Mario Draghi revealed that the decision to hold rates steady was unanimous, unlike at the December meeting when there was "wide discussion" about whether to ease further, including the concept of negative interest rates. Today's more hawkish tone has boosted the euro, with EUR/USD testing 1.3220 while EUR/JPY approached 116.50, its highest since July 2011. The EUR/CHF cross moved back above 1.21 level as more Swiss banks were said to start charging for certain deposit accounts.

- WTI crude had been pivoting around the $93 level for the last five or six sessions before rapidly breaking out to six-week highs around $94.50 earlier this morning. The immediate catalyst was Saudi Arabia reporting December oil production at 9.02M bps, versus 9.49M bps in November. This marks Saudi's second consecutive month of sub-10M bpd production. Front month crude has dropped back below $94 in mid morning trading.

- Multi-level marketing firm Herbalife is much in focus as the company holds an analyst event this morning in order to present its case rebutting the case made by Pershing Square's Bill Ackman. Analysts are highly skeptical, however legendary curmudgeon Carl Icahn has decided to go long HLF and is building a stake in the firm. With Loeb and Icahn now long the name, one hedge fund manager commented that "it's going to be an Ackman sandwich." HLF is up 2.6% this morning.

- Apparel retailer Aeropostale cut its Q4 outlook in half this morning, warning that its holiday season comps were a nasty -8% y/y. Despite the firm's strong Black Friday weekend, sales and traffic trends deteriorated significantly in December. ARO is -8.7%.

- Upscale jeweler Tiffany dropped 5% after it warned full-year earnings would be at the lower end of its forecasted range.

- Shares of US rare earth miner Molycorp are down more than 20% this morning after the firm warned that its FY13 revenue and cash flow would be lower than expected.

- Supermarket name Supervalu is up more than 11% despite some sub-par Q3 numbers. The firm has also reached a deal to sell off five retail grocery chains to an investor group led by Cerberus Capital.

- Ford is up 2.5% after hiking its quarterly dividend by 100%.
