What’s in Today’s Report:

  • Bullish or Bearish?  My Analysis.
  • EIA and OPEC Analysis

Futures are slightly higher following more encouraging inflation readings and despite underwhelming Chinese economic data.

EU HICP (their CPI) rose less than expected (3.6% vs. (E) 3.9%) furthering the idea the ECB is done with rate hikes.

Economically, Chinese Nov. PMIs disappointed as both the manufacturing and composite PMIs missed estimates.

Focus now turns to economic data as today and tomorrow contain the week’s most important economic reports.  Today, the Core PCE Price Index (E: 0.2%, 3.5%) is the key report and anything that shows a greater than expected decline in inflation will likely spur a rally.

Other notable data today includes Jobless Claims (E: 219K) and Pending Home Sales Index (E: -2.0%) and we also have one Fed speaker: Williams (9:15 p.m. ET).  Again, data that is “Goldilocks” on growth combined with commentary from Fed officials that imply rate hikes are done should continue to support stocks.
