A daily morning look at the financial stories you need to know to start the day.

STOCKS/ECONOMY

-Stock futures are down as the post-election Dow winning streak may be coming to an end.

-Investors will be focused on October economic data from the Producer Price Index (PPI), which measures how much manufacturers and other businesses receive for their goods and services, and will provide signs of potential inflation.

-The bond selloff is resuming today with the yield on the 10-year Treasury up to 2.27 percent, the highest level this year. The rise in bond yields is causing mortgage applications to dwindle. They fell 9 percent last week because of rising rates.

OIL/ENERGY

-U.S. crude prices are down about 1 percent, trading at $45 per barrel. This is after a strong rally on Tuesday.
