Dow +47.65 at 12009.17, Nasdaq -3.27 at 2620.43, S&P +4.17 at 1271.81

Stocks continue to drift lower. The downward grind has left the three major equity averages to trade at new session lows.
Amid the stock market's weakening, the Volatility Index is climbing so that it is now down 3% for the session. Just yesterday it set a near three-month high.
Treasuries have started to tick higher in response to the recent action among stocks. In turn, the benchmark 10-year Note is at a session high, although it is still down a single tick.

American focus:

The euro gained versus the dollar by the most in two weeks after German Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed to compromise and work with the European Central Bank on a debt plan for Greece.
Currencies of commodity-exporting countries rose as stocks advanced, boosting appetite for higher-yielding assets. The MSCI World (MXWO) Index of equities added 0.8 percent as Merkel retreated from German demands that bondholders be forced to shoulder a “substantial” share of a Greek rescue, easing concern the region’s sovereign debt problems will worsen.
“The aim is involvement of the private sector on a voluntary basis, and for that the Vienna Initiative, as it’s called, is a good basis,” Merkel said. “I think we can achieve something on this basis.” A rollover involves reinvesting the proceeds from maturing bonds in new securities.
Adopting the Vienna plan, used during the financial crisis of 2009 for eastern European units of banks to maintain their exposure, would involve encouraging creditors to roll over expiring bonds, buying time for Greece until its austerity program shows results or until a permanent rescue fund kicks in from mid-2013.
Greek bonds rallied and European stocks reversed losses as attention shifted to Athens, where Prime Minister George Papandreou overhauled his Cabinet as he struggles to gain parliamentary approval for a 78 billion euro ($111.5 billion) five-year package of budget cuts and asset sales by July.
“The latest events seem to have eased some of the immediate market stresses concerning Greece and the periphery,” said Robert Lynch, head of currency strategy for HSBC Holdings Plc in New York. “Not only did it relieve downward pressure on the euro, but it’s also allowing some semblance of increased risk appetite back into the market.”
The euro-area’s currency fell earlier on concern a potential Greek debt default may spread to other indebted nations in the 17-member bloc. The euro reversed losses after French President Nicolas Sarkozy said a “breakthrough” had been made on the Greek debt crisis, following a meeting with Merkel, who said she’ll work with the European Central Bank to avoid disrupting markets.
The dollar remained lower after a report showed U.S. consumer sentiment was lower than forecast in June, while an index of leading economic indicators rose in May.
The Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan preliminary index of consumer sentiment decreased to 71.8 from 74.3 in May. Economists forecast a reading of 74.
The Conference Board’s gauge of the outlook for the next three to six months rose 0.8 percent after a revised 0.4 percent decline in April, the New York-based group said today. Economists forecast a 0.3 percent gain.

Dow +59.45 at 12020.97, Nasdaq +2.22 at 2625.92, S&P +5.63 at 1273.27

A flurry of selling pressure has undercut stocks. The effort took the Nasdaq down to the neutral line, but it has yet to cross into the red. Meanwhile, both the Dow and S&P 500 have managed to hold on to modest gains.
Treasuries have had a hard time attracting support this session. That has kept the benchmark 10-year Note stuck in the red with a slight loss; its yield, at 2.95%, is at the mid-point of its weekly range.

15:22
Dow +71.75 at 12033.27, Nasdaq +3.86 at 2627.56, S&P +6.96 at 1274.60

Choppy action has eaten into the broad market's gain. Still, stocks are up a few points for the week. That's something that hasn't happened since April.
The Nasdaq is having a harder time holding on to its gain, however. Sellers have sent the tech-rich index to a session low, where it has been left to cling to a fractional gain. For the week, though, the Nasdaq is still down about 17 points, or less than 1%.

Forex: Thursday's review

The euro pared its decline against the dollar after reaching a three-week low amid speculation an agreement between the European Union and the International Monetary Fund may allow Greece to avoid a debt default.
Europe’s shared currency erased most of its earlier declines after European Union Economic and Monetary Commissioner Olli Rehn said Greece will be able to get funding from the EU and International Monetary Fund in July as long as it enacts budget cuts. The IMF backed Rehn in a statement. The yen strengthened against the dollar after a report showed an unexpected slowdown in Philadelphia area manufacturing.
Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou will reshuffle his cabinet and seek to win a confidence vote today after attempts to garner opposition support for an austerity plan failed.
EU Commissioner Rehn said “close contact” with the IMF made him confident of an accord at a weekend crisis meeting to pay out 12 billion euros ($17 billion) in July as long as Greece enacts new budget cuts.
Greece’s immediate concern is to obtain 8.7 billion euros from Europe and 3.3 billion euros from the IMF in July, promised as part of last year’s precedent-setting aid package to stave off the euro area’s first default.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy will meet tomorrow in Berlin, with pressure increasing for the leaders to reach an accord on a rescue package for Greece. European Union finance ministers agreed on June 14 to convene again on June 19 after they failed to reconcile a German-led push for bondholders to shoulder part of the cost of a new plan for Greek aid. 
EUR/USD: the pair shown low in $1.4070 area. Later the rate grown and finished session above $1.4200.
GBP/USD: the pair  shown low in $1.6070 area, then grown in $1.6160  area.
USD/JPY: on results of yesterday's session the pair decreased in Y80.60  area.

 It is a quiet end to the week - in terms of the European data calendar at least. European data starts at 0600GMT with ACEA May new car registrations, although of more interest will be EMU trade data for April, which isreleased at 0900GMT at the same time as EMU construction output, also for April. At 1300GMT, the International Monetary Fund releases it's quarterly update of the World Economic Outlook.

Stocks: Thursday's review

Japan’s Nikkei 225 (NKY) Stock Average fell by the most in three months as the euro weakened against the yen on mounting concern Greece will default on its debt and after reports showed the U.S. economy is cooling.
Toyota Motor Corp. (7203), the world’s largest carmaker, lost 1.7 percent. Mitsubishi Corp. (8058), Japan’s biggest commodities trader, retreated 2.8 percent after crude and metal prices dropped. Mitsui Fudosan Co., Japan’s largest developer by sales, slumped 3.6 percent after the supply of new condominiums offered in Tokyo rose less-than-expected following March’s earthquake.
European stocks fell to a three- month low as Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou said he will reshuffle his cabinet and seek a confidence vote.
Vedanta Resources Plc (VED) led basic-resource shares lower as metal prices fell. Lenzing AG (LNZ) dropped 2.7 percent as the Austrian maker of textile fibers and its majority shareholder B&C Industrieholding GmbH sold about 619 million euros ($877 million) of shares. Carrefour SA (CA) tumbled 3.5 percent as UBS AG recommended selling shares of the French retailer.
European Union talks to forge a new bailout to prevent the first euro-area default stalled. The impasse over the aid formula and speculation that a government shakeup would disrupt the passage of budget cuts and asset sales sent Greek bonds and the euro plunging yesterday.
The International Monetary Fund today said it is ready to continue supporting Greece if the economic measures agreed upon as part of a bailout package with the European Union are adopted.
European stocks maintained declines today even after reports showed that housing starts in the U.S. increased more than forecast in May and fewer Americans than predicted filed applications for unemployment benefits last week.
U.S. stocks erased gains, threatening to wipe out the 2011 advance in the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, amid concern large banks will need to increase reserves to comply with proposed international regulations.
JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup Inc. retreated at least 1.5 percent, wiping out a 1.1 percent gain for financial shares in the S&P 500, as people familiar with the matter said international financial supervisors are considering capital surcharges of as much as 3.5 percentage points on the largest banks if they grow bigger. Early gains in the market followed data showing jobless claims decreased more than forecast and housing starts topped economists’ estimates.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index lost 0.2 percent to 1,263.42 at 2:08 p.m. in New York after rallying as much as 0.7 percent earlier. The drop trimmed the benchmark gauge’s year-to- date advance to less than 0.5 percent. The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 23.72 points, or 0.2 percent, to 11,920.99.
A gauge of 82 banks, insurers and investment firms has slumped 8 percent this year for the worst drop among the 10 major industries in the S&P 500. A subgroup of lenders has lost 12 percent, the second-biggest decline among 24 groups, amid weakening economic growth, growing regulatory scrutiny and reduced profitability from lending because of low interest rates.
