The May Producer Price Index was to be released on Friday. It was moved up to 2PM on Thursday, then postponed indefinitely. Me, I think they're using the day of mourning as an excuse; BLS was having some trouble getting this number out on time earlier this year.

The CME and CBOT will both be closed on Friday, with the pits failing to open and overnight electronic sessions closing by 8AM. The stock markets will be closed as well.

Update: BLS has acknowledged a problem calculating the PPI, and probably had done so before I posted this. The number in fact won't come out before next Tuesday.
