US Futures are flat as investors digest earnings and economic data. The Labor Department reported that September import and export prices came in higher than expected, rising 0.5% m/m and 0.8% m/m, respectively. The higher import prices are likely due to higher oil and food costs. The Federal Reserve’s report on Industrial Production showed an increase of 0.3% m/m in September. European shares are slightly higher. Two ECB members will speak later today in Europe. Asian shares closed higher for the 11th day in a row led by Japanese shares.
