Both the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:DJI) and the S&P 500 Index (SPX) are pointed higher this morning, with the indexes on pace to close out the third quarter with a win. Although traders will be keeping one eye trained on geopolitical developments in Hong Kong, today's raft of economic data should garner some attention. Specifically, updates on home prices, Chicago business activity, and consumer confidence are due. Additionally, Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell is slated to speak.
Futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:.DJI) are nearly 45 points above fair value.
The Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) saw 901,681 call contracts traded on Monday -- the fewest since Aug. 29 -- compared to 635,172 put contracts. The resultant single-session equity put/call ratio dropped to 0.70, while the 21-day moving average remained at 0.63.
