It is Thursday, the 9th of November, here are some things to look out for today.
By 5:39 a.m. in New York, contracts tracking the S&P 500 were up 0.2%. If the index closes higher on the day, it will have gained for the ninth consecutive session, the longest streak since November 2004. Futures on the Nasdaq 100 were little changed. In pre-market trading, Walt Disney Co. gained 4% after profit beat estimates. Arm Holdings Pic sank 6% as its first earnings report since its initial public offering gave a disappointing sales forecast. Elsewhere, oil hovered near a three-month low after plunging almost 7% over the previous two sessions. The yield on 10-year Treasuries rose three basis points to 4.52%. Bitcoin rallied to an 18-month high. The dollar was on track for a fourth day of gains, the first since September, as traders awaited speeches from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell and European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde.
