Here is what you need to know on Tuesday, November 22:

Equity markets continue to slide lower as news flow is light in a shortened week. At least The Wall Street Journal provided some volatility as a report it carried caused oil to collapse 5% before Saudi Arabia denied any planned OPEC increases. That saw oil stocks slide Monday, but they are up today in Europe and should follow suit in the US as oil steadies. Earnings overnight were mixed with retailers again performing alright, but the disappointing forecasts from Dell Technologies (DELL) created another storm cloud. The highlight this week is likely to be FOMC minutes, and given how hawkish Powell was in the presser it seems a good bet that those minutes should err on the side of the hawks. 

The Dollar Index is lower this morning at 107.43 while Bitcoin continues to suffer at $15,700 now. Oil is back up to $81, and Gold is higher on the falling dollar at $1,747.
