US equities opened a little weak, saw some chop, leaned a little higher into mid afternoon, with closing hour minor weakness. The Dow notably broke a new historic high.
VIX saw a few minor swings, notably settling higher for the 9th day of past 10. Cyclically high, with the VIX highly prone to cooling back into the 10/9s by end month.

The Shanghai comp' is currently net higher for January by a very significant 5.1% at 3474. This is a provisional breakout. The 3500s would be decisive, and offer 4500 within 9-15 months. Huge implications for other world markets.
I'd also refer you to the Russian (RTSI) and Italian (MIB) markets.
