In the News Today July 6th, 2010 | zero hedge
Last week’s market rally, in which the prior week’s carnage was reversed, occurred without any major economic or market news and blunted talk of a double-dip recession. What will occur over the next several weeks, however, is a string of major earnings releases with little margin of error, owing to a consistent ratcheting up of expectations in 2010.

After two years of more or less standing firm while markets elsewhere floundered, China’s share markets are feeling some pain of their own, as investors react to policies aimed at cooling surging housing prices — and to growing uncertainties over how big, bad and messy the fallout will be from the European financial crisis.
