US equity futures are pointing to extension of last week's selloff, dragged down by Ebola fears after confirmation that a medical worker in Dallas who cared for deceased patient from west Africa also contracted the disease. This marks the first Ebola infection in the US, and should continue to weigh on the travel industry.- China September exports surged 15.3% from the prior year, handily beating estimates of 12.0%. Overall the trade balance came in as a surplus of $31.0B, lower than the expected $41.1B. Closely-tracked imports rose 7.0%, above the expected decline of 2.0%. Following the release of the trade data, an official from China Customs said the country faces difficulties in achieving an annual trade growth target of 7.5%, but expects trade to improve over the next 2-3 months.- Also of note in China, PBoC Gov Zhou reiterated the central bank would maintain prudent monetary policy, and that inflation would remain stable. PBoC top economic advisor Ma Jun added that China's slowing economy does not need any big stimulus, with the job market remaining strong. - Press reports indicated that China plans to raise the resource tax on crude oil and natural gas, as well as coal. There was also some speculation that China will levy taxes on iron ore. Coke futures in China traded higher by 2%, while iron ore traded limit up 4%.- WTI and Brent crude lost over a percent, also extending losses from last week, after the Kuwait oil minister on Sunday said that OPEC is not likely to cut production to support falling prices. He also does not expect prices to fall below $76-77/barrel, noting that members were still able to adjust to current prices.- Fed Vice Chair Fischer spoke over the weekend, expressing uncertainty regarding FOMC economic projections and steering on the side of caution.
