Jobless Claims and Factory Orders will liven things up on Thursday for investors. Several major names reporting earnings will add to the volatile nature of the session. Stocks got off to a strong start this morning. The Fed’s Beige Book cast a quick pale on the day indicating less growth than expected in most Federal regions. Speculation ran rampant of the Fed being forced to keep interest rates low due to the muted growth picture.
