Tesla made a record 80,000 vehicles last quarter, report says

Tesla produced a record number of vehicles in the third quarter, said a report by electric vehicle blog Electrek, which cited unnamed sources. The report said Tesla made about 80,000 cars in the last three months, which would be nearly as much as it produced in the previous two quarters combined. That number includes 53,000 Model 3 sedans, squarely within Tesla’s goal of producing between 50,000 and 55,000 Model 3s during the quarter.

Treasury yields inch higher after US and Canada secure new trade deal

Canada and the U.S. secured a trade deal to replace the current North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The accord is expected to be named the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or “USMCA” for short, according to a senior official from the U.S. administration. Both nations, along with Mexico – which agreed to a deal earlier this year – are expected to sign the agreement by the end of next month.

Treasury yields inch higher after US and Canada secure new trade deal

Canada and the U.S. secured a trade deal to replace the current North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The accord is expected to be named the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or “USMCA” for short, according to a senior official from the U.S. administration.

The agreement is expected to deliver more market access to dairy farmers in the U.S., while Canada has agreed to a negotiation that effectively caps automobile exports, to the States. Both nations, along with Mexico – which agreed to a deal earlier this year – are expected to sign the agreement by the end of next month. It would then be passed to Congress for submission.

On Monday, Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren will attend the NABE 60th Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts while Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic is set to appear at the Inclusive Economic Development Council Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.

These speeches come less than a week after the Federal Open Market Committee decided to raise interest rates by a quarter point.

Elsewhere, investors will be keeping an eye on news surrounding the Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, as the nominee’s future at the federal courthouse is called into question, amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

Canadian dollar hits four-month high as U.S., Canada reach NAFTA deal

The dollar slipped against the Canadian dollar on Monday as the United States and Canada reached a framework deal to update the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Sources with direct knowledge of the talks confirmed the two countries reached a deal, which involved offering more dairy access to U.S. farmers as well as Canada agreeing to a side-letter arrangement effectively capping automobile exports to the United States.

A Mexican source close to the NAFTA talks separately said: “we have a trilateral deal.”

The Canadian dollar rose about 0.7 percent, reaching a four-month high of C$1.2814 as the news about the framework agreement broke, before giving up some gains. It last traded at C$1.2836.

The loonie added to the previous session’s gains of more than one percent.

“Though markets were already anticipating an agreement, one source of worry will be swept away if a deal is made,” Yukio Ishizuki, senior currency strategist at Daiwa Securities in Tokyo, said.

“That will lead to a rise in trust in the U.S. economy, so it’s easy for risk sentiment to improve.”

“The Canadian dollar is really strong today. Together with that, it’s easy for currencies from resource-dependent and emerging market countries to rise, putting selling pressure on the dollar.”

Mexico’s peso currency strengthened to a seven-week high versus the dollar, at one point gaining about 0.85 percent to 18.54 per dollar.

The yen, meanwhile, weakened to 113.96 per dollar, reaching its lowest since the middle of November 2017 before paring some losses. It last traded 0.2 percent higher at 113.90 per dollar.

The greenback has risen four straight weeks against the Japanese currency, including a nearly 1 percent gain booked last week.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration had said Canada must sign on to the text of the updated North American Free Trade Agreement before Monday local time or face exclusion from the pact. Washington has already reached a side deal with Mexico, the third NAFTA member.

The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six currencies, edged less than 0.1 percent higher to 95.197, not far off a more than two-week high of 95.366 reached on Friday.

For the third quarter, the dollar index posted its second consecutive quarterly gain, rising more than half a percent.

The euro was down 0.1 percent at $1.1595, with worries about a rise in Italy’s deficit weighing on the single currency after the Italian government agreed to set a higher than expected budget deficit target.

The single currency gave up nearly 1.2 percent last week and traded close to a more than two-week low of $1.1569 touched on Friday.

GE shares soar after company suddenly dumps John Flannery as CEO

GE shares, which had fallen to a nine-year low last week, surged in reaction. GE shares surged 9.7 percent Monday, trading as high as $13.07 a share. Last week, the stock posted one of its worst weeks of the year, down 7 percent and hitting a nine-year low of $11.21. Fear of a second dividend cut for the widely owned blue chip company has also weighed on the shares. GE cut the dividend in half on Nov. 13, to 12 cents per share from 24 cents per share.

GE shares soar after company suddenly dumps John Flannery as CEO

Struggling industrial conglomerate General Electric abruptly removed John Flannery as chairman and CEO on Monday after only a year on the job, and installed former Danaher CEO Lawrence Culp as his successor.

GE shares, which had fallen to a nine-year low last week, surged in reaction.

GE also announced a $23 billion noncash charge for its ailing power business and said it will “fall short of previously indicated guidance for free cash flow and EPS for 2018,” as many on Wall Street had warned.

Flannery’s removal was driven by the board’s frustration with the slow pace of change under his leadership, and not driven by the power business woes, sources familiar with the issue told CNBC.

Culp, 55, was named to the GE board in April. He served as the CEO and president of Danaher from 2000 to 2014, during which he quintupled the size of the science and technology company.

GE shares surged 9.7 percent Monday, trading as high as $13.07 a share. Last week, the stock posted one of its worst weeks of the year, down 7 percent and hitting a nine-year low of $11.21.

Flannery, 56, was appointed August 2017, taking the helm from Jeff Immelt as the conglomerate’s stock fell steadily. But GE’s value had continued to erode, setting new lows as investors remain unconvinced by Flannery’s turnaround plan. Fear of a second dividend cut for the widely owned blue chip company has also weighed on the shares. GE cut the dividend in half on Nov. 13, to 12 cents per share from 24 cents per share.

Last June, GE was kicked out of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. It had been the longest-serving component of the blue chip index — 111 years.

The new NAFTA deal doesn't mean US-China trade relations are about to improve

A last-gasp deal to salvage the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) does nothing to improve the prospect of a meaningful breakthrough in the U.S.-China trade war, one market expert told CNBC on Monday.

Just hours before a midnight deadline, U.S. and Canadian officials reached a deal to revamp NAFTA, which also includes Mexico, after more than a year of grueling negotiations.

Until recently, Canada appeared to be on the brink of being excluded from a final agreement but negotiations over the weekend eventually culminated in all three countries signing up to the new United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) accord.

However, one market expert cautioned the new NAFTA deal shouldn’t be seen as a sign that there could soon be a breakthrough in troubled trade relations between the U.S. and China.

“I do believe that unfortunately the China story is a lot more complicated (than NAFTA talks),” Luis Costa, head of CEEMEA FX and rates strategy at Citibank, told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Europe” on Monday.

Five things that must happen for blockchain to see widespread adoption, according to Deloitte

Blockchain is similar to an accounting ledger, only it records transactions across a vast network and is decentralized, meaning it doesn’t require any central authority to oversee it.

Advocates of the technology say that’s a huge advantage when it comes to tracking financial transactions and other data.

But there’s a problem, Deloitte says.

“Blockchain can be slow,” researchers at the consultancy said in a report published on Monday. “In contrast to some legacy transaction processing systems able to process tens of thousands of transactions per second, the Bitcoin blockchain can handle only three to seven transactions per second; the corresponding figure for Ethereum blockchain is as low as 15 transactions per second.”

It adds: “Because of its relatively poor performance, many observers do not consider blockchain technology to be viable for large-scale applications.”

With bitcoin’s blockchain, any number of people can participate in the network, as it is public. So-called miners on the network work out complex mathematical problems to validate transactions.

There needs to be consensus on the network about the validity of the transaction in order for it to go through. While this system reduces the risk of malicious activity being carried out on the network, it can also increase the time it takes for transactions to settle.

However, Deloitte has said work is being done to create a more efficient model that can speed up transaction speeds. Firms in the industry like Hyperledger, Stellar and Ripple are using new consensus mechanisms aimed at accelerating this process.

These new models are called “proof-of-stake” systems, where a cryptocurrency miner is required to have a certain stake in the digital asset in order to participate in the network.

“The evolution of consensus mechanisms is improving blockchain speed significantly — good news for applications in trade finance, supply chain traceability, auto leasing, marine insurance, health care, and insurance,” the report said.

Kudlow: No trade deal with China is 'imminent'

White House economic advisor Larry Kudlowsays discussions with China over trade aren’t progressing.

On Sunday, the U.S. and Canada reached a new trade deal to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement. Kudlow was asked about the implications of the new pact on the trade conflict with China.

“It sends an important message to China, where we’re trying to negotiate on trade, North America is together,” he said in a Fox Business interview Monday.

But Kudlow said a deal with the Asian country is not close.

“Nothing is imminent on China,” he said. “I think there’s discussions going on. No, I wouldn’t say it was imminent.”

The economic advisor said President Donald Trump is not satisfied with the progress of the trade talks with China.

The Trump administration’s latest tariffs of 10 percent on $200 billion of imports from China took effect last week. Trump, in a Sept. 17 statement, said the tariffs would rise to 25 percent on Jan. 1, 2019.

Kudlow also said Trump may meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G-20 meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina, later this year.

The G-20 meeting is scheduled to be held Nov. 30 to Dec. 1.

Kudlow is director of the National Economic Council and is one of Trump’s top advisors.

Europe ends on a slightly upbeat note after Canada secures trade deal with US, Mexico; Ryanair sinks 12.5%

In the corporate space, travel and leisure equities were some of the worst performers Monday following news that Ryanair had cut its full-year profit guidance. The stock sank 12.5 percent by the close, making it one of Europe’s biggest losers. Other airlines were impacted by the news, with Easyjet down by 7 percent and Air-France-KLM dropping 4 percent.

In afternoon trade, Royal Mail shares tanked, after the postal service firm issued a statement on its performance. In the update, its group CEO Rico Back said that trading conditions in Britain were “challenging” and that its letter volumes had been impacted by business uncertainty, GDPR and ongoing structural decline. After the U.K. firm delivered its warning on profit and costs, shares sank some 18 percent.

German health firm Fresenius led Europe’s gains, following a report that a Delaware judge ruled in its favor in a corporate dispute with Akorn. The judge’s decision allows Fresenius to walk away from a $4.75 billion merger deal with the U.S. drugmaker. The stock surged 8.5 percent.

Linde was also one of the region’s biggest gainers, closing up over 6 percent, after the group won regulatory approval from Chinese authorities to merge with Praxair.

Elsewhere, Danske Bank has appointed a new interim CEO. Jesper Nielsen, head of the Danish banking union, has replaced Thomas Borgen, who resigned last month after a money laundering investigation. Shares of the bank closed mildly higher.

Tesla shares surge 15 percent after SEC settlement

Tesla shares surged 15 percent in morning trading Monday, opening at $305.77, after CEO Elon Musk settled charges with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The SEC charged Musk with fraud Thursday alleging he issued “false and misleading” statements and failed to properly notify regulators of material company events. The charges were in relation to a tweet that Musk posted in August saying he was considering taking the electric carmaker public at $420 a share.

On Saturday, Musk settled the charges with the SEC, agreeing to pay a civil penalty of $20 million and give up his role as chairman of the board for at least three years. The SEC also imposed a fine of $20 million on Tesla. The carmaker must also appoint two independent directors to the board.

Under the deal’s terms, Musk and Tesla neither admit or deny wrongdoing alleged by regulators.

Tesla’s gains Monday morning erase the stock’s 14 percent plunge on Friday.

Investors will now be focusing on Tesla’s next earnings report. Over the weekend Musk sent an email to staff saying that Tesla was “very close’ to being profitable. In two emails obtained by CNBC, Musk told staff to “ignore the distractions” and that the company was close to “proving naysayers wrong.”

Correction: The SEC charged Elon Musk with fraud. An earlier version of this story incorrectly said Tesla had been charged.
