Morning, Traders!
Happy Friday! It is the 1st of December, here are some things to look out for today.

The dollar fell against the majority of G-10 currencies, while Treasuries remained unchanged as investors await Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell's speech for clues on the outlook for US interest rates.
The US ISM manufacturing data, as well as the manufacturing PMI reading, will be released later on today.

The long-awaited economic slowdown in the United States has begun: After defying expectations all year and splurging over the summer, there are signs that American households are beginning to pull back.
