February is off to a decent start, with the best two-day performance for the DJIA and S&P500 in four weeks. European indices are on a tear thanks to reports the EU and Greece are figuring out a workable new deal for Athens. As of writing, the DJIA is up %, the S&P500 has added % and the Nasdaq is gaining %.

New orders for US factories declined for a fifth straight month in December. The decline was greater than expected, and revisions to the November data showed a bigger contraction. Meanwhile the Big Three US automakers all topped expectations in January sales reports with double digit growth. FCAU and GM are up 2%, while shares of Ford are giving up gains.

EUR/USD spiked higher right at 08:30ET, with traders citing stops being elected after the pair moved above yesterday's high of 1.1360. EUR/USD moved up to 1.1450. Additionally, there was chatter that the Swiss National Bank was intervening in EUR/CHF again, just a day after press report that the SNB was unofficially targeting a EUR/CHF corridor of 1.05-1.10.

Negotiations between Greece and the EU Commission appear to be going well, according to various press reports circulating this morning. The Greeks have dropped demands for another debt haircut and will be satisfied to swap EU and ECB loans at face value for new instruments. While the two sides are said to be confident about the chances of reaching an agreement, the ECB is a source of tension as it is reportedly rejecting proposed bond swaps. The Athens stock index gained more than 11% today, adding to Monday's 4.6% rise.

Stronger underwriting and a relatively quiet season for natural disasters helped Aetna and The Hartford report decent fourth-quarter reports. Aetna raised its FY15 guidance, on a 12% y/y increase in revenue. Auto insurance name Progressive beat expectations. Standard & Poor's confirmed that it had agreed to pay $1.38 billion to settle government charges that it inflated ratings during the housing boom, helping set off the financial crisis and recession.

Like other big energy names, Anadarko had a tough fourth quarter, missing expectations widely. National Oilwell Varco's earnings in its fourth quarter were good, however backlog and new orders are already sinking lower. The company warned 2015 would be very tough. NOV is down 4%, while APC is well off its 4% gain earlier.
