ยท Producer prices for the month of October blew out consensus expectations all around with upward revisions to most of September's readings, weighing down on the front end of the yield curve in the UK. PPI input was bolstered by a rise in fuel and oil prices, as was PPI output. The data kicks off the a long week of economic data in the UK, and is perhaps a sign of things to come over the next few days.

ยท USD/JPY fell to 18-months lows on the back of sub-prime jitters. Additional jitters come as the US FASB regulation 157 is set to take effect this Thursday, which could result in a further $100B in loss writedowns. The effects of the unwinding of the JPY are not just limited to the USD, and are being felt across the board.
ยท Front month crude continues to trade in negative territory in the session ahead of the mid-November OPEC summit scheduled to take place next weekend. Front-month crude jumped higher in the session on reports of an gun battle at a Nigerian based oil right, however the news was not enough to push front month contracts into positive territory.
ยท The yield on the 10-year gilt broke above that of the 2-year gilts for the first time since November 28, 2005 today as the sharper-than-expected reading on PPI input and output figures weighted down on the front end of the curve.
