Futures remained slightly lower following lower than expected initial claims (709K vs 740K consensus) and CPI – which came in at 1.2% annual and 0.0% for October.  Note that it took a plug number outlier +1.2% pop in electricity to keep CPI from going negative.

One would think if the economy were really all that healthy, especially with the flood of liquidity still being thrown at it, we’d see at least some inflation.  But, hey, we got the 10/20 crosses we were expecting in ES, SPX and VIX. So, the rally is safe…right?
