Summary:  EU Inflation as a Halloween gift - Dow has the best month since 1976


Good Morning

Welcome to November

Stocks lost a little steam yesterday after a strong month with the Dow Jones having the best month since 1976. The Index gained 14%, the S&P 500 8% and the Nasdaq gained 4% due to the pressure on mega caps.

This morning risk sentiment is strong with the USD a little weaker and equities gaining. Gold and Silver rise to 1643 and 19.55, the EURUSD 0.9925 and GBPUSD to 1.1535 and the USD Index hovers near 111. China's yuan fell to a near 15-year low against the dollar

The positive sentiment is likely driven by a higher than feared Chinese PMI, coming at 49.2 vs 49 expected and the fact that the Australian Central Bank stuck to a hike of 25 Basis points rather than 50.

European Inflation was reported even higher than feared yesterday, causing fears of hawkish central Banks.

Eyes remain on the FOMC tomorrow where the expectation remains for a hike of 75 Basis Points, the probability remains above 95% and the ten year yield remains near 4% - hopefully the US PMIs (14:45 and 15:00) will not change the mood.
