    Americans spent money in September with Personal Spending easily beating expectations in numbers released this morning. Michigan Consumer Sentiment also beat, as well as Chicago Purchasing Managers' Index.

    Financial markets are down big this morning mainly on option-related trading pressure, and big-tech losing its brilliance in the face of its election interference.

    A win for President Trump on Tuesday will juice the stock market higher. A Biden win will bring the opposite and over-regulation and more government interference in markets will be the norm.

    Core Personal Consumption Expenditure (MoM) (Sep) printed at the estimate of 0.2%.

    Personal Income (MoM) (Sep) printed at 0.9% vs 0.4% estimate.
