What's the Trade?

This is a morning where I will be looking for any sort of early edge. The UltraShorts are actually a bit higher than last Friday's close in what has felt like a bad week for those plays. Let's keep an eye there for any long opportunities. Deflation talk may hit commodities today; GLD and USO will be our tells there.
