LOOKING AHEAD
Readings on Retail Sales and Consumer Sentiment On Friday, the Commerce Department will report the latest data on retail sales, for October. Analysts foresee a 0.2 percentage point rise in retail sales compared with September. Also Friday, the preliminary Thomson Reuters University of Michigan survey of consumer sentiment in November is to be released, with economists looking for a rise to 87.5, from 86.9 in October. The consumer sentiment index has been on the upswing recently, helped by lower gas prices, a surging stock market and a gradually falling unemployment rate. One year ago, in November 2013, in the aftermath of the government shutdown, consumer confidence stood at 75.1 in the University of Michigan survey. Wall Street will be watching both figures for clues to how the crucial holiday shopping season is shaping up and for signs of how much of an impact lower gas prices are having on consumer spending habits.
Data on Eurozone Growth Could Point Toward Recession The eurozone's third-quarter economic growth figures are due out Friday and they could show that the region is indeed tipping toward its third recession in five years. Second-quarter growth was zero; if the third quarter follows suit - or if the figures show the economy actually contracted - alarm bells will ring. Even if the eurozone over all managed to record weak growth in the quarter, unease will grow if the German economy contracted.
