Schedule for Week of December 1st


The Nikkei is down slightly.


From CNBC: Pre-Market Data and Bloomberg futures: the S&P futures are up slightly and DOW futures are up 20 (fair value).


Oil prices are mixed with WTI futures down to $92.82 per barrel and Brent at $109.69 per barrel.  The spread is back big time!


Below is a graph from Gasbuddy.com for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices have decreased recently to $3.25 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.
