ECB Says Don't Expect More Rate Hikes

The market got another boost at the open, sending the DOW to a new high. Oil is trading down below $63, and bond yields are steady at 4.48%.

ECB President Trichet said, after raising rates to 3.50%, that it would be "wrong" to conclude that it will raise rates further. The market had been pricing in a move to around 4.0%.

Financials are getting a nice bounce, while housing stocks are giving back a little of their recent gains. Industrials are mostly higher also, while other sectors look mixed.
