Today's Economic Data Docket - Lots Happening

In addition to the usual headline barrage from a broke continent, the first of many, we have a very busy data schedule, highlighted by October retail sales.
8:00: Chicago Fed President Charles Evans on “Discussion of the Fed’s Dual Mandate”.
8:30: Retail sales (October): Unchanged. Chain-store sales results for October point to a cooling in retail sales growth after a strong September.  Goldman forecasts flat growth rates for both total and non-auto sales.
Total: GS: Flat; Consensus: +0.3%; Last: +1.1%.
Ex-autos: GS: Flat; Consensus: +0.2%; Last: +0.6%. MAP: 4
Ex-autos, gas & building materials: GS: Flat; Last: +0.6%.
8:30: Producer Price Index (October): Vehicles volatility? Watch out for heightened volatility in the Producer Price Index (PPI) report, which is frequently skewed by the roll out of new model-year vehicle during the month of October. Don't expect any large change in vehicle prices to be repeated in subsequent months.
PPI: GS: +0.1%; Consensus: -0.1%; Last +0.8%.
Core PPI: GS: +0.1%; Consensus: +0.1%; Last +0.2%. MAP: 2
8:30: Empire State Index (November): Another improvement? Consensus forecasts look for an improvement in the Empire State index for November. This timely measure of manufacturing activity was about unchanged over the preceding three months. 
Consensus: -2.0; Last -8.5. MAP: 2
8:30: St. Louis Fed President James Bullard on “The Economic Outlook and Monetary Policy”.
10:00: Business inventories (September). Not a market mover, but the non-auto retail inventory component could have implications for revisions to Q3 GDP growth.
Consensus: +0.1%; last +0.5%.
10:05: San Francisco Fed President John Williams on the economy.
11:00: Chicago Fed President Charles Evans interviewed on CNBC.
12:30: Dallas Fed President Richard Fisher on “Too Big to Fail”.

Worthless info at this point. Even if the economy here shows signs of some improvement. Euro crap about to make our next leg down a doozy.

Market will move up if we get news that Drahgi had a hemorrhoid successfully removed.
