Tech bubble worse than that of 2000: CubanMarketWatchHigh-profile US investor Mark Cuban says that the "bubble" in tech stocks is larger than it was in 2000, immediately prior to the dot-com crash. According to Cuban, “if we thought it was stupid to invest in public internet websites that had no chance of succeeding back then, it’s worse today." MarketWatch's Shawn Langlois says that Cuban is not alone in sounding a note of alarm, pointing to Seabreeze Partners president Doug Kass' remark that "Mr. Market is beginning to launch into the giddy phase". US equity indices are currently riding high, and Langlois says that the last "serious" pullback in the S&P 500 was nearly three years ago.Read article on MarketWatch

Squawk / 7 hours agoEuroSTOXX 50 Future Bull Threat into ECB through 3609; then to 3635 and Above
A further corrective setback Wednesday as we had expected, but as we had stated in our recent client reports "we look for 3523/22 and certainly 3498 to hold and still see upside pressures from the firm February extension rally" and the bounce from ahead of here signals a still bullish tone.
We see a re-energizing of the bullish pressures that saw a push through key longer term targets at the psychological/ option level at 3500 and the 61.8% retrace of the entire 2007-09 bear market at 3520, which has re-energized the bull theme for Q1.
We see an upside bias for 3606/09; break here aims for 3618 and 3635.
But below 3546 aims through 3532 and opens risk down to 3523/22, which we would look to hold.
