The heat map color scheme of interest rates reflects yields.

  • U.S. elections saw the Republicans take control of the Senate and increase its majority in the House. This means the Republicans are now in charge of the legislative agenda, but getting bills passed will be difficult.
  • Service PMI data freon the U.K. and Eurozone have been mildly disappointing today. the data have seen the EUR and GBP slip. U.S. ADP Private Jobs data are due.
  • Reports of dissent within the ECB governing committee raise questions about the ECB meeting on Thursday. The focus of disagreement is said to be irreconcilable differences between President Draghi and BBK President Weidman over QE and Draghi's secretive management style.
