Major US stock indexes finished trading in negative territory against the backdrop of a strong fall in shares of General Electric for the second day in a row, as well as a collapse in oil prices.
In addition, as it became known today, in October the producer price index in the US has steadily increased, which indicates an increase in inflationary pressures. The producer price index, the inflation rate experienced by enterprises, increased by 0.4% in October compared with a month earlier, the Labor Ministry reported on Tuesday. If we exclude more volatile food and energy components, the so-called base prices also increased by 0.4% in October. According to the economist of the Ministry of Labor, the growth of the general producer price index as a whole was due to the surge in trade services, which grew by 1.1% compared to a month earlier. Economists had expected a 0.1% increase in total producer prices and 0.2% in base prices.
Oil prices fell by about 2%, due to the evidence of growth in US production, and a gloomy outlook for demand growth in the report of the International Energy Agency (IEA). The IEA in its monthly report presented a surprisingly gloomy outlook for oil demand, which suggests slowing consumption, and contradicts the more bullish forecasts from OPEC voiced the day before. IEA lowered the forecast of growth in oil demand by 100,000 barrels per day this year and in 2018, to about 1.5 million barrels per day in 2017 and up to 1.3 million barrels per day in 2018. The IEA said that warmer temperatures could reduce consumption, while a sharp increase in output outside the OPEC group of producers could mean that the global market will return to excess in the first half of 2018.
Most components of the DOW index finished the session in the red (16 of 30). Outsider were shares of General Electric Company (GE, -5.52%). The growth leader was the shares of The Home Depot, Inc. (HD, + 1.54%).
Almost all sectors of the S & P index recorded a fall. The greatest decrease was shown by the sector of raw materials (-1.8%). Growth was recorded only by the utilities sector (+ 0.8%).

The ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment for Germany in November 2017 has once again improved on the result from the previous month. The indicator currently stands at 18.7 points, which corresponds to an increase of 1.1 points compared with the October result. The indicator, however, still remains below the long-term average of 23.7 points.
"The prospects for the German economy remain encouragingly positive. Overall high levels of growth across Europe in the third quarter are supporting further growth in Germany and boosting expectations for the coming six months. This favourable economic climate should be used to create a stronger and more robust basis for future growth," comments ZEW President Professor Achim Wambach.
In September 2017 compared with August 2017, seasonally adjusted industrial production fell by 0.6% in the euro area (EA19) and by 0.5% in the EU28, according to estimates from Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union. In August 2017, industrial production rose by 1.4% in the euro area and by 1.7% in the EU28. In September 2017 compared with September 2016, industrial production increased by 3.3% in the euro area and by 3.6% in the EU28.
Seasonally adjusted GDP rose by 0.6% in both the euro area (EA19) and the EU28 during the third quarter of 2017, compared with the previous quarter, according to a flash estimate published by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union. In the second quarter of 2017, GDP grew by 0.7% in both zones. Compared with the same quarter of the previous year, seasonally adjusted GDP rose by 2.5% in both the euro area and the EU28 in the third quarter of 2017, after +2.3% and +2.4% respectively in the previous quarter. During the third quarter of 2017, GDP in the United States increased by 0.7% compared with the previous quarter (after +0.8% in the second quarter of 2017). Compared with the same quarter of the previous year, GDP grew by 2.3% (after +2.2% in the previous quarter).
The headline rate of inflation for goods leaving the factory gate (output prices) rose 2.8% on the year to October 2017, down from 3.3% in September 2017.
Prices for materials and fuels (input prices) rose 4.6% on the year to October 2017, down from 8.1% in September 2017.

The inflation rate for food and non-alcoholic beverages continued to increase to 4.1%, the highest since September 2013.
Rising prices for food and, to a lesser extent, recreational goods provided the largest upward contributions to change in the rate between September 2017 and October 2017.
The upward contributions were offset by falling motor fuel and furniture prices, along with owner occupiers' housing costs, which remained unchanged between September 2017 and October 2017, having risen a year ago.
The Consumer Prices Index (CPI) 12-month rate was 3.0% in October 2017, unchanged from September 2017.

The overall index of producer and import prices rose by 0.5 percent in October 2017 compared to the previous month, reaching 101.0 points (base of December 2015 = 100). The increase is mainly due to higher prices for machinery, electrical equipment and metal products. Compared to October 2016, the price level of the total supply of domestic and imported products increased by 1.2 percent. This is evident from the figures of the Federal Statistical Office (FSO). The increase in the producer price index compared with the previous month was mainly due to higher machine prices.

China's industrial production and retail sales growth decelerated in October and property investment cooled, as measures taken to curb excessive debt and factory pollution weighed on activity.
Industrial production grew 6.2 percent year-on-year in October, but slower than the 6.6 percent expansion seen in September, data from the National Bureau of Statistics, cited by rttnews. This was also weaker than the expected growth of 6.3 percent.
Likewise, retail sales growth eased to 10 percent from 10.3 percent in September. Economists had forecast growth to improve to 10.5 percent.
During January to October, fixed asset investment climbed 7.3 percent compared to 7.5 percent rise seen for nine months ended September.
The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) reports that, in the third quarter of 2017, the gross domestic product (GDP) rose 0.8% on the second quarter of 2017 after adjustment for price, seasonal and calendar variations. In the first half of 2017, the GDP had also increased markedly, by 0.6% in the second quarter and 0.9% in the first quarter.
The quarter-on-quarter comparison (upon adjustment for price, seasonal and calendar variations) shows that positive contributions came for instance from foreign trade. In the third quarter of 2017, the increase in exports was higher than that of imports. Arithmetically, the balance of exports and imports had a positive effect on the GDP in a quarter-on-quarter comparison.
Consumer prices in Germany were 1.6% higher in October 2017 than in October 2016. The inflation rate, as measured by the consumer price index, was +1.8% in both September and August 2017. The consumer price index in October 2017 remained unchanged compared with September 2017. The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) thus confirms its provisional overall results of 30 October 2017.
Energy prices in October 2017 were by 1.2% higher than a year earlier. In September 2017, the rate of energy price increase had been +2.7%. The upward effect of energy prices on the overall inflation rate diminished markedly. Prices of motor fuels and household energy rose by 1.2% each in October 2017 compared with the same month of the previous year.
European stocks on Monday closed lower for a fifth straight session, after French utility Electricite de France SA issued a profit warning, and on concerns about Brexit weighing on growth prospects for the eurozone. Markets also appeared rattled by uncertainty surrounding progress for a cut in U.S. taxes.
U.S. stocks closed marginally higher Monday after the Dow and the S&P 500 posted their first weekly drops in two months last week. Upside was capped, however, as uncertainty continued to swirl around the state of Republican tax-cut legislation while blue-chip General Electric Co. tumbled to a more-than-five-year low.
Global equity markets were lower in Asia on Tuesday, as a pullback in commodity shares dragged Australia's benchmark index lower, while tighter liquidity weighed on Chinese stocks. Commodity stocks have been key to the recent rebound for Australia's underperforming equities market, helping the S&P/ASX 200 XJO, -0.92% hit 10-year highs earlier this month, but profit-taking pressure has been building.
