The pessimism that has been ruling the markets since the U.S. election may ease a little today.  President Barack Obama is set to meet with the leader of the Republicans in an effort to avoid the fiscal cliff.  Bond yields are virtually unchanged, up just 1 bp.


Industrial production in the U.S. dropped unexpectedly in October.  Overall output fell 0.4% and the storm known as Sandy is getting the blame.  Forecasts had called for a 0.2% gain.  Capacity utilization, which measures the extent to which plants are achieving their full potential output, also decreased.  It fell to 77.8% in October from 78.2%.


Foreign investment in Canadian securities climbed in September, led by purchases of government bonds.  Non-residents picked up nearly $11 billion dollars in debt securities for the month, pushing the year’s total, so far, to almost $56 billion.  Most of that is in federal bonds.  Canadians bought $6 billion dollars in foreign securities in September – mainly U.S. equities.
