Schedule for Week of December 9, 2018

Monday:
• At 10:00 AM ET, Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey for October from the BLS.

From CNBC: Pre-Market Data and Bloomberg futures: S&P 500 are down 16 and DOW futures are down 165 (fair value).

Oil prices were mixed over the last week with WTI futures at $52.58 per barrel and Brent at $62.15 per barrel.  A year ago, WTI was at $57, and Brent was at $64 - so WTI oil prices are down about 10%, and Brent prices down about 3% year-over-year.

Here is a graph from Gasbuddy.com for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices are at $2.42 per gallon. A year ago prices were at $2.46 per gallon, so gasoline prices are down slightly year-over-year.
