AM Minding Your Business for Nov. 4, 2011

Today on American Morning, Christine Romans reports on the morning business news headlines.

Today we're watching:

* As of this writing, U.S. futures are trading slightly lower ahead of the opening bell. The U.S. markets saw solid gains yesterday after Greece decided to scrap the vote on a critical bailout fund.
* Groupon is upping the price for its IPO. How much? 20 dollars per share, valuing the online coupon company at $13 billion.
* The FTC is settling it's two-year-old case against the makers of "Hoodia" weight loss products, costing two companies $27 million dollars.
* If you're fed up with fees, you can vent your frustration tomorrow. It's being called 'bank transfer day.' A Facebook group encouraging people to ditch the big banks. A new survey says more than 650,000 people have switched to credit unions since Bank of America announced its new debit card fee.
* Thanksgiving is just around the corner. And a trade group says it's looking like there are going to be 37,000 fewer fliers per day around the holiday this year.
