European Central Bank left rates unchanged.  Answers to questions in the press conference are mostly in line with the consensus.

Debate

Market participants believe that last night’s presidential debate did not change anything that would affect the markets.

Brazil

Brazil cut its interest rate for the first time in four years.

CHINA STABLE, WEAK U. S. HOUSING STARTS, GOLD BUYING AND RECORD SAUDI BOND SALE

China Stable

Chinese GDP came at 6.7% in line with consensus.  This will allow the government to undertake reforms especially in the property sector.

Housing Starts

Housing Starts came at 1047K vs. 1168K consensus.  This is a very weak number and we will keep a close eye on it.

The leading indicator here is building permits. Building Permits came at 1225K s. 1164K consensus.

The third presidential debate will take place tomorrow night.  Markets have already awarded the presidency to Clinton.  Among market participants there is a lot of optimism that Clinton might win the debate.

Consumer Price Index

September Core CPI came at 0.1% vs. 0.2% consensus.  This weaker number flies in the face of optimism that is prevailing in the markets this morning.  At least temporarily markets are ignoring this weaker number.  If markets start concentrating on this number, the global rally can fizzle quickly.

Markets

Our very, very short-term early stock market indicator is positive but can reverse quickly.

There is strong buying in bonds, gold, silver, oil, and other commodities.

Dollar is slightly weaker.

Gold futures are at $1263, silver futures are at $17.70, and oil futures are $50.29.
