Futures traded their range overnight as geopolitical news broke futures early and they began their climb back prior to the pit open. Economic releases did little to move futures in any meaningful direction as tighter ranges were seen for the remainder of the day.
Minimal action overnight as futures trade in a tight range. That changed after the release of the September CPI data. Algos initially read the headline number as weak, and futures ticked up. However, core CPI, at 2.4% YoY, was the strongest reading since late 2008, and futures traded down to the bottom of the day’s range.
Relatively quiet overnight session as futures hover above range lows. That all changed with the release of the ISM Manufacturing numbers, which disappointed with the lowest reading since 2009. Futures spiked to their session highs and settled near those highs.
Very quiet overnight session, only 10K options volume prior to pit open. Futures traded near their session lows prior to a weak Chicago PMI number that rallied us to the top of our day range, where we ended the session.
