The United States has drafted a plan with its Arab allies to establish a no-fly zone over Syria.

Western diplomatic sources said the administration of President Barack Obama has reached agreement with Saudi Arabia and other Arab allies to impose measures meant to topple the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

“The no-fly zone does not have to be enforced throughout Syria, only in areas used by Assad’s military,” a diplomat said.

Under the plan, the United States would supply fuel, weapons and intelligence to maintain the no-fly zone. The sources said Turkish and Arab fighter-jets would challenge the Syrian Air Force as well as monitor Assad’s ground forces.

Weidmann bites lip: "Its going to be ok when they rip out my spine.  Yes, I will make a brave face!"

(talk about trying to damage control and giving your hand away.)

I would expect the no sense market to gain about 600 before friday when they take back about twice that after the downgrades get handed out.

SP500 daily chart resumes choppy downtrend. Opposite for USDX.

My long term indicators have continued to warn of USD strength and EURO weakness and these signals have increased since 2009. The overdue dollar rally should be substantial.
