Retail sales outdid expectations, but largely due to strong car sales from the residual effect of cash-for-clunkers, and a strong downward revision to September's number. Meanwhile, New York state business outlook was far weaker than expected, sending futures edging lower. Dow now +0.5% to 10290. S&P +0.7% to 1099. 30-year TSy +0.6% to 120-05.
