Wall Street mixed amid soft data and disappointing earnings

The NAS100 and SPX500 indices both rose yesterday despite weak economic data, but the US30 index declined amid disappointing earnings. News that North Korean had fired two projectiles didn’t appear to dent risk appetite. ECB rate meeting today is expected to hold a dovish bias.
