Wall Street posted a gain of some 50 points last night as investors focused on earnings and talk of potential package of diplomatic measures

Crude Oil prices retreated in the session and the market took a higher than expected PPI number in its stride .

In Asia the Nikkei is up around 1.2 % this morning  but a sell off in commodities such as copper  has left the mining heavy Aussie markets lower.

Despite this and the news that Israeli troops are now active on the ground in Lebanon the UK Market is called to open some 25 points higher .
