Summary

Activity in the U.S. will slow somewhat in the week ahead, as the holiday season comes into focus and the year nears an end.

Economic reports will include an update on the inflation rate, after the consumer price index in October climbed a little further.

Jefferies analysts recently noted the short-term effect of the tariff war has been disinflationary as concerns about growth in China have caused weakness in commodity prices imported into the U.S.

Among the corporate events on the calendar, CBS Corp will hold its annual shareholders meeting, amid heightened event risk following the departure of former CEO Les Moonves earlier this year.

Interactive Brokers senior market analyst Steven Levine provides some highlights for what to look for in the U.S. in the week beginning December 10.
