14:21 EDTFed's Beige Book says economy grew "at a measured pace"
The economy expanded "at a measured pace," the Fed reported in its October Beige Book. Most regions of the country grew at a moderate pace, but several districts grew at a slower rate. The growth of the New York and Philadelphia regions was negatively affected by Hurricane Sandy, but the growth in the Boston region slowed even though Hurricane Sandy had only a limited effect on it, the Fed noted. Consumer spending grew at a moderate pace in most regions and employment increased in more than half the regions, while the real estate and tourism/travel sectors were stronger in some districts and weaker in others. The performance of non-financial service providers and transportation companies also varied by region, and manufacturing slowed in seven of 12 districts, the Fed said. Consumer loan demand increased in some areas, but small business loan demand was generally weaker to moderately higher, the central bank reported.

08:15 EDTFutures sharply lower amid interest rate uncertainty
Stock futures are pointing to a sharply lower open, following the lead of European markets, which have been under pressure today. The early weakness is being attributed to uncertainty about the timing of interest rate hikes as well as China's economic outlook. The domestic economic calendar remains light, with only the FHFA house price index and Richmond Fed manufacturing survey scheduled for release. In morning trading, Dow futures are 179 points below fair value, Nasdaq futures are 59 points below fair value and S&P futures are 23 points below fair value.

Global growth concerns are back on center stage, and point to a big U.S. Wall Street sell-off this morning.

02:40 EDTFX Update: The dollar has rallied against the euro
FX Update: The dollar has rallied against the euro, other European currencies and most Asian currencies. USD-JPY has been comparatively steady today, having rallied above 120.50 yesterday. Japanese markets remained closed today. EUR-USD, meanwhile, has dropped further into two-week low territory in making a low of 1.1163, extending yesterday's dollar-driven decline in the wake of hawkish remarks from Fed's Bullard and, to a lesser extent, Lacker. Bullard, presently a non-FOMC voter, said that there is a "powerful case to be made" for rate lift-off. This contrasted with ECB's Praet, who said in remarks after the European close that the central bank would "forcefully" react should the inflation environment worsen. BoE's Cunliffe, meanwhile, said UK growth was "pretty robust" but said there were no price pressures and highlighted global growth risks. Cable has logged a six-day low at 1.5480. AUD-USD managed to hold up comparatively well, aided by mostly firmer Asian stock markets, and perky Australian house prices and consumer confidence data. The pair recovered from a one-week low of 0.7121, subsequently settling around 0.7145.
