US Futures are Mixed as Senate Republicans Delayed a Vote on the Tax Bill

US futures are mixed as Senate Republicans delayed a vote on the tax bill.  Concerns about the fiscal “trigger” caused lawmakers to make changes to the bill and required more time to complete, forcing a delay in the vote.  In Bitcoin news, the CFTC has approved futures trading on Bitcoin and will begin trading on GLOBEX on December 18th of this year and later be available by the CBOE.  While Bitcoin is trading higher on this news, speculation of increased regulation is expected due to broader acceptance by the mainstream investment community.  On the economic front, November PMI, ISM and October construction spending are due out later this morning.  European shares are mostly lower as technology shares lag.  Asian shares closed mixed with the Japanese NIKKEI leading to the upside.
