  1. FOMC minutes: The Fed told us what we already knew: they wanted to give us a hint about December. So why did the dollar slide? We explain.
  2. Terror effect on markets: The terrible news from Paris and the consequent events in France, Belgium, Syria and elsewhere certainly caught the world’s attention and also markets were influenced, but it wasn’t a clear cut. Will it impact the ECB?
  3. Thanksgiving trading: Apart from the obvious lower volume, there are some seasonal effects, especially for “Cyber Monday”. We drill down the numbers.
  4. Preview for next week’s events: US GDP stands out in Thanksgiving week but this is certainly not the only event in a week that is crammed early on and becomes light afterwards.
