Global news has been a bit mixed of late, but here's some good stuff:
The level of US consumer confidence has hit its highest level since more than 6 years ago when the global financial crisis was just beginning.
The Consumer Board's confidence index hit a reading of 82.3 up from 78.3 last month.
That's the best reading since all the way back in January 2008.
This is very important, since, after all, in a consumer economy like the US, consumer spending ultimately accounts for about 70% of all economic activity.
US employment increased by 175,000 in February as well - great news, there is nothing better than seeing jobs created.
Aussie share markets will probably follow Wall Street a bit higher.
