The market has continued a downward trend since the last update, with the S&P 500 falling 2.28% during that time:

On the jobs front, the unemployment Rate for October remained at 3.7%, with a strong 250,000 new jobs created. Oil prices have slumped to the $56 level (down from $72) as supply has exceeded demand.
On the financial front, I put a bit more cash into 28 day T-Bills with an investment rate of 2.199% after taking another equity distribution from my S Corp. Additionally, I've been considering selling off some of my old Series I Savings Bonds with a 0% fixed interest rate and using that cash to buy January 2019 issues with the surprisingly high current 0.5% fixed rate. I also have an old Penfed 3.04% APY 5 year CD maturing early next month and will need to find a home for those funds. I wonder if there is a chance for an old-school Penfed end of year CD deal? That would be nice. :)
As for the non-financial, we're looking at an early Thanksgiving next week with Christmas not far behind. Ugh, I am so not ready for snow and cold weather.
