WALL STREET JOURNAL: Fed officials are split over an early retreat from the experimental programs created to revive the U.S. economy as minutes released from the Fed's January policy meeting show officials concerned that the current easy-money policies could lead to excessive risk-taking and instability in financial markets, the Wall Street Journal reports...Google (GOOG) has developed the first touchscreen laptops powered by its Chrome operating system to be sold later this year, sources say, as the company tries to go against Microsoft’s (MSFT) Windows operating system, the Wall Street Journal reports...REUTERS: U.S. builders (TOL, KB, DHI, PHM) broke ground on fewer homes last month but a jump in permits for future construction to a four and a half year high indicated the housing market recovery remains on track. Another report showed wholesale prices increased in January for the first time in four months, Reuters reports...The Volcker Rule is expected to be finalized as soon as this year. Major banks are already pulling back from private equity investments ahead of the rules. But not Wells Fargo (WFC).

By avoiding equity from outside investors, the bank is considered to be engaging in "merchant banking," likely to be exempt under the new rule, Reuters reports...BLOOMBERG: Americans are eating less fast food and pizza (MCD, BKW, DPZ, YUM).

13:59 EDTDHID.R. Horton technical comments before earnings
In the prior three months the shares have outperformed, trading up over 15%. Over the prior year the shares have traded in a range largely contained by $20 at the low and $25 at the high. Ahead of earnings, the stock is trading closer to the top of the range. When looking at a long-term chart, 10-year basis, the price action from March 2013 until now appears to be a symmetrical triangle in formation. That pattern would be a bullish continuation pattern given the uptrend that preceded its formation. On strong news and outlook, a move above $25 would trigger that pattern. Upside objectives could be at resistance at $25.97, $27.75, and $29.22. If the news disappoints, the lower bound of the triangle could be tested at the $20 area. A breakdown below $20 would void the pattern. Support levels that could become downside objectives would be at $18.99, $17.60, and $16.32.
