The U.S. equities market started off November in sideways trading on mixed economic news. While the housing sector was strengthening, the factor sector has been struggling on weak exports and the stronger U.S. dollar.

New reports of slowing growth out of the consumer sector also dragged on the broader market as brick-and-mortar stores blamed weaker winter sales on the unseasonably warm weather.

The equities market began to trend lower after the unexpectedly strong October non-farm payroll employment report fanned speculation that the Federal Reserve would have more reason to hike interest rates in its December meeting.

Nevertheless, improving economic data, notably in the housing market and labor market, helped support further gains in the equities market and pare the mid-November pullback.
