9:10am (EST) Gold has toped the $1,000 an ounce level this morning as it is up $11 to $1,007.  Futures are pointing towards a big open.  Dow futures are up 80 to 9,497, S&P 500 futures are up 10 to 1,024 while Nasdaq 100 futures are up 14 to 1,650. Oil is up $3 to $70.95. There is a lot of news out this morning.  General Electric (GE, $13.87) has a pre-market bid of $14.46 after getting an upgrade.  Apple (AAPL, $170.31) also got another upgrade and will be a stock to watch this week. If my calculations are right, we should see at least a 50 point gain on the Dow at the open.  If so, we could quickly hit a triple-digit gain in the first 10 minutes.
