Stocks began the session higher as investors appeared to be more optimistic that congressional leaders could agree on compromises to solve the fiscal cliff dilemma. The market picked up momentum shortly after the open following the impressive real estate data. The market has been in a holding pattern for about the last two hours and continues to trade in a narrow range... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the National Association of Realtors said that resales of existing homes climbed 2.1% last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.79M units, beating forecasts for sales to have declined 0.2% from the prior month.

Also higher were shares of BioMimetic Therapeutics (BMTI), up 75% after striking a deal to merge with Wright Medical (WMGI). Wright moved lower fractionally following the announcement.

Last night, Hormel Foods (HRL) provided additional information regarding the anticipated impact of recent avian influenza outbreaks on its Jennie-O Turkey Store segment, stating that lower turkey supply is expected to impact plant operations and cause reduced sales volumes as the year progresses.
