Minimal action overnight as futures trade in a tight range. That changed after the release of the September CPI data. Algos initially read the headline number as weak, and futures ticked up. However, core CPI, at 2.4% YoY, was the strongest reading since late 2008, and futures traded down to the bottom of the day’s range.
Relatively quiet overnight session as futures hover above range lows. That all changed with the release of the ISM Manufacturing numbers, which disappointed with the lowest reading since 2009. Futures spiked to their session highs and settled near those highs.
Very quiet overnight session, only 10K options volume prior to pit open. Futures traded near their session lows prior to a weak Chicago PMI number that rallied us to the top of our day range, where we ended the session.
Futures were relatively quiet overnight, with tight 2-3 tick ranges. A better than expected a new home sales number edged us lower. But a vague Trump tweet about a China deal propped up equities and moved Eurodollars to their session lows where we finished the session.
