    3 Numbers: Will Germany's retail spending hold up?
    All eyes will be on Germany's October retail sales. The year-on-year trend has been trending lower but only moderately and with weaker sentiment readings, a dip in spending won't be a surprise.

    The Global Times
    The Paris Climate Conference promises to produce a new deal to keep global warming under control. China is the first emerging economy to set an ambitious emission target for itself.
