The major U.S. indices put in a flat week with the S&P 500 (SPY) finishing higher by just +0.1%. Notable outliers, including Real Estate (IYR -1.9%), Midcap Growth (PWJ +2.3%) and Agriculture (DBA +2.0%), underscored the low volatility in their slight absolute magnitude.

Week Forty-Four of 2010 features national elections on top of an extremely busy economic reporting calendar, including a Wednesday Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) rate decision and the monthly Friday Jobs Report, as follows:
