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.

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

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.

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.
