Futures are solidly lower and are extending Wednesday’s losses following more disappointing earnings reports.

Earnings results this week have not been good and that continued overnight with disappointing guidance from META, WPP and Canadian Pacific (CP).

Today will be a busy day on both macro and micro economic fronts.

First, there’s an ECB Rate Decision but no hike is expected.  Economically, key reports today include, in order of importance, Jobless Claims (E: 208K), Durable Goods (E: 1.0%), Preliminary Q3 GDP (4.2%) and Pending Home Sales (-1.0%).  As has been the case, “Goldilocks” data that shows solid, but not very strong, activity will be welcomed by markets.

On the earnings front, there are multiple important reports today highlighted by AMZN ($0.58) after the close.  Other notable reports today include: UPS ($1.53), MRK ($1.94), LUV ($0.38), MA ($3.21), INTC ($0.19), and CMG ($10.46).  Bottom line, disappointing earnings are becoming a new headwind on markets and solid results today will help stabilize sentiment (while more disappointing reports will add to headwinds).
