09:55 EDTMarket opens relatively quietly, lower in early trade
Stock futures were quiet throughout the pre-market trading session, leading to a relatively quiet open for the broader market. The Dow hit a new all-time high yesterday, its 25th record for 2014. Oil prices continue to move lower and now stands at a four year low and questions remain about the effect of the low cost of oil. Certainly it will help the consumer, but the ripple effect in the economy continues to be debated. In early trading, the Dow is down 10 points, the Nasdaq is down 8 points and the S&P is relatively flat.
09:50 EDTU.S. corporate bond update: issuance is moderate today

09:00 EDTU.S. equities marginally padded gains
U.S. equities marginally padded gains after the retail sales came in above low expectations and trade prices were dragged lower by tumbling energy prices. The Dow rose 15-points, S&P gained 2-points and NASDAQ is 3-points firmer in pre-open trade. Fresh trend lows in the yen helped prop up Japan's N-225 0.56%, supported by ongoing speculation over sales tax hike delay and stimulus, though Europe is trading mixed despite somewhat-firmer-but-still-limp GDP returns in Europe. The Euro Stoxx 50 has reclaimed shallow positive territory from out of the red earlier. Merger talks between Halliburton and Baker Hughes boosted their shares, while Geron leapt 37% after licensing a cancer drug to J&J. Hertz sank 1.5% after cutting its 2014 outlook and confirming cost cutting. Up next are U. Michigan and inventory data to round out the week.

The pairing traded into 1.1360 from over 1.1380, though has since moved back over 1.1380. The modest rebound in oil prices has lent some support to the CAD, though most seem to think this morning's oil rally is nothing more than pre-weekend short covering related.

08:15 EDTU.S. retail sales preview:
U.S. retail sales preview: retail sales are expected to remain unchanged in October, with the ex-autos aggregate remaining unchanged as well (medians 0.2% for both). This compares to a recent high of 2.2% in March '10, and a low of -2.6% in September '09.

08:05 EDTCanada Manufacturing Preview
Canada Manufacturing Preview: Analysts expect factory shipments to rise 1.0% m/m in September (median same at +1.0%) after the 3.3% plunge in August. Supportive of our projection, export values rose 1.1% in September after a 2.5% drop in August. An as-expected bounce in manufacturing would further underpin the view that the pull-back in manufacturing and exports during August was temporary. The August export decline was in large part due to a shift in the annual retooling schedule, which was likely also a culprit behind the weakness in August manufacturing.

Sterling dived to fresh lows, with Cable making a new 13-month low at 1.5654 and EUR-GBP reaching new three-week highs above 0.7950. The move extended the decline that was set in motion by the release of the November BoE Quarterly Inflation Report on Wednesday, which trimmed growth and inflation forecasts. The market is also looking next week's U.K. October CPI release, which comes with downside risk. The AUD managed to recover above 0.8700 after dipping on news that Glencore, the world's biggest thermal coal miner, is planning to close a number of mines in Australia in December due to global oversupply.
