by Calculated Risk on 11/03/2013 08:42:00 PM

• Early, the LPS September Mortgage Monitor report. This is a monthly report of mortgage delinquencies and other mortgage data.

• At 10:00 AM, the Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories and Orders (Factory Orders) for both August and September. The consensus is for a 0.3% increase in August orders, and a 1.7% increase in September orders.

• At 2:00 PM, the October 2013 Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey on Bank Lending Practices from the Federal Reserve. This might show some slight loosening in lending standards.

Schedule for Week of November 3rd

Will the Fed "Taper" in December?

From CNBC:
Pre-Market Data and Bloomberg futures: the S&P futures are up slightly and DOW futures are up 15 (fair value).

Oil prices are down with WTI futures at $94.60 per barrel and Brent at $105.90 per barrel.

Below is a graph from for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices are around $3.26 per gallon.  If you click on "show crude oil prices", the graph displays oil prices for WTI, not Brent; gasoline prices in most of the U.S. are impacted more by Brent prices.
