ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., weekly jobless claims dropped to 393,000, versus expectations for claims to fall to 390,0000. The Commerce Department revised its estimate for the gain in Q3 GDP to 2.7% from the previously reported 2% gain. Analysts expected growth to be revised to a 2.8% rate. However, within the report, Q3 consumer spending was lowered to a 1.4% growth rate from the 2% gain previously reported. Pending home sales rose 5.2% in October from the prior month, versus expectations for an increase of 1%...

A report from the Wall Street Journal said that Whiting Petroleum (WLL) had been exploring a sale but would no longer pursue that alternative.
