- ECB's Nowotny
(Austria) reiterated forward guidance in that many central banks had reached the lower bound but not the ECB. Perspective of deflationary prices must be kept in mind, deflation was not imminent. There was no north-south division in the ECB council; differences existed on timing not substance. Stagflation, not deflation, was the real risk at this time
- ECB's Asmussen (Germany) also reiterated forward guidance: ECB has not yet reached the limit on what it could do on interest rates depending on inflation developments. Would be careful about moving to negative deposit rate, but would not rule it out. Might be possible to drop minimum ECB reserve requirement for bank (would increase liquidity)
- German Coalition working group agreed on nationwide referendums should be held on EU policy decisions of special importance
- EU's Almunia commented that there was no time to waste on putting banking union together and the competition regulator was looking into market credit default swaps
- Russia Central Bank said to see increased risk inflation would remain above year-end target of +5-6%
- Fed's Fisher (hawk, 2014 voter) commented from Australia that monetary accommodation was riskier by the day as there was a tipping point where monetary accommodation came to be viewed not as the pleasant stimulus that levitates bonds
- Poland Central Bank (NBP) Inflation Report raised its inflation and GDP forecasts for 2013-15 periods
- Spain banking sector CEOs to meet ECB's Draghi on Monday, Nov 18th in Frankfurt in preparation of stress tests
- China Communist Party concluded it Plemum meeting and approved economic reform plans
- International Energy Agency (IEA) World Energy Outlook raises its 2035 world oil demand to 101M bdp from 99.7M bpd due to growth in Asia. China seen as world's largest oil consumer by 2030. US becoming world's largest oil producer by 2016, earlier than expected

Currencies/Fixed Income:
- Lots of central bank speak in the EU/US session today and traders looked to be reinforced with forward guidance by ECB and potential timing of tapering by Fed following last week's run of better US data that ended with a much better than expected NFP reading.
- EUR/USD remained below the 1.34 handle as several northern ECB members speak the standard line on forward guidance.
- USD/JPY saw the yen currency weakens to 2-month lows at 99.70 ahead of the European session as dealers focused on the spread between US and Japanese 30-year bond at widest level since 2011
- GBP/USD fell to 2-month lows below 1.5870 after UK inflation data (CPI, RPI and PPI) came in below expectations ahead of Wed's BOE quarterly inflation report
- EUR/NOK saw the Krone currency at lowest level against the Euro since Jan 2010 as dealers attributed part of the NOK weakness to reports that Brazil's Vale priced to sell its stake of 407.1M shares at NOK25/shr in Norsk Hydro

Political/In the Papers:
- (EU) Agreement said to have been reached on EU 2014 budget
- ECB's Draghi might be concerned about possibility of deflation, but he would not state so publically
- (US) Fed's Fisher (hawk, 2014 voter): Recent jobs numbers not that bad
