January 29, 2016
09:40 EDTThe advance trade balance report for goods
The advance trade balance report for goods revealed a surprisingly large December widening to $61.5 B from an "advance" gap of $60.5 B in November and a "final" November trade gap of $60.3 B, which is consistent with the upside import surprise in this morning's GDP report. The gap remained surprisingly wide in 2015 as weakness in emerging market economies and a strong dollar hurt the trade balance by more than falling petroleum import prices helped. Exports weakened considerably in 2015, while imports posted a strong four-quarter climb with support from big inventory gains in early 2015 that are unwinding now. The goods deficit implies a December widening in the goods and services trade deficit to $44.2 B from $42.4 B in November, with a 0.6% drop for exports and a 0.3% rise for imports, after prior respective declines of 0.9% and 1.7% in November, and 1.6% and 0.4% in October, with weakness that reflects declines in trade prices alongside "real" trade gains. The "advance" trade report for goods is a relatively new report first released at the end of July.
09:30 EDTU.S. Chicago PMI Preview
U.S. Chicago PMI Preview: January Chicago PMI is expected to rise to 48.5 (median 45.0) from 42.9 in December and 48.7 in November. Already released measures of January producer sentiment have weakened and the remaining releases look poised to remain depressed in January as analysts discussed in Monday's commentary. Analysts now expect the ISM-adjusted average of all measures to fall to a cycle-low 49 after holding at 50 since September. For even more information see our sentiment overview page.

08:25 EDTEnergy Action: NYMEX crude futures are up about 1%
Energy Action: NYMEX crude futures are up about 1% at $33.45/bbl in early N.Y. trade, after ranging between $34.13 and $33.08 overnight. Recent gains, prompted by market hopes for a meeting amongst producers to tackle the global oversupply issue, have largely held, despite no time-line in place for such a meeting, though dollar strength this morning has dented sentiment somewhat. Sources look for a N.Y. close over $33.00 to keep the better market tone intact, though a break below is expected to bring further pressure on prices into the weekend, barring fresh news on production cut talks. RBOB gasoline futures are back under $1.09/gallon, after posting nearly three-week highs over $1.15 on Thursday. Retail prices continue to fall however, with average U.S. prices now down to $1.81/gallon, down 3 cents over the past week, and 19 cents from a month ago, per AAA data.
08:05 EDTCanada IPPI Preview
Canada IPPI Preview: Our projection is for the industrial product price index to fall 0.5% (m/m, nsa) in December after the 0.2% drop in November. The IPPI is expected to post a 0.9% y/y rate of increase in December after the 0.2% drop in November. A difficult comparison with a sharply lower December of 2014 index level is to blame. The RMPI is projected to fall 5.0% m/m in December, driven by a 13% drop in oil prices in December from November.
