Investors may be thinking ahead to the Thanksgiving holiday and spending time with friends and family, but there is still a full-day left of trading ahead of us.  The earnings calendar is light as Deere (DE) has been the only report on the calendar, but there’s plenty of economic data to tide you over as we try to jam three days worth of reports into one day.  Things kick off at 8:30 with Durable Goods and Initial Claims.  At 9:45, S&P will release flash PMI readings for the manufacturing and services sector, and then at 10 AM, we’ll get Michigan Sentiment and New Home Sales. Not enough for you?  OK.  Well, how about we cap it off with some FOMC Minutes at 2 PM?  Is that enough for you?

Futures are technically in the green this morning, but they’re pretty much unchanged, and we’ve seen a number of ticks this morning where they were actually unchanged.  The same is true in Europe where trading has been uneventful.  Economic data in the region, however, has been positive as flash PMI readings for both the manufacturing and services sectors came in higher than expected for the entire Eurozone as well as Germany, the UK, and France individually.

Which of these indices is not like the other?  As technicians attempt to divine whether the S&P 500 and other major US equity benchmarks will be able to break above its 200-DMA in this current leg higher, it seems out of place to be talking about the DJIA breaking out to six-month highs.  Heading into the Thanksgiving holiday, the DJIA has rallied more than 19% off its Q3 low and is already more than 5% above its 200-DMA.  The DJIA isn’t often thought of as a leading indicator for the broader market, but more than a few 401k plans have hopes that the rest of the indices play follow the leader.

Our Morning Lineup keeps readers on top of earnings data, economic news, global headlines, and market internals.  We’re biased (of course!), but we think it’s the best and most helpful pre-market report in existence!
