The U.S.'s top diplomat provided the most detailed plan yet for Gaza's post-war future from Washington, suggesting the enclave should be managed by the Palestinian Authority and politically reunified with the West Bank.

2. U.S. 30-Year Mortgage Rate Sees Its Biggest Weekly Drop in Over a Year

Data released on Wednesday by the U.S. Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) showed that the average rate for a 30-year mortgage in the U.S. experienced its largest drop in over a year last week, with the contract rate falling 25 basis points from 7.86% to 7.61%, the lowest level since late September. This marks the first consecutive weekly decline in mortgage rates since mid-June, moderately easing the strain on the struggling U.S. housing market and driving up home purchase applications significantly since early June.

4. Russian Oil Exports Nearing Highest Level in Four Months

In the four weeks leading up to November 5, Russia averaged about 3.48 million barrels of oil exports per day, slightly higher than the four-week average leading up to October 29. According to data monitored by foreign media, this marks the highest level of Russian crude oil maritime exports since July. Meanwhile, Russia has promised to extend its 300,000 barrels/day export cut plan to the end of the year, part of its efforts with Saudi Arabia to buoy oil prices. Estimates suggest Russia has only cut a third of this number, implying the remainder must be compensated by reducing exports of refined products like diesel.
