It appears yesterday's triple-digit sell-off on the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) will continue this morning, despite a relatively quiet day on the earnings and economic fronts. Meanwhile, speaking from Germany, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard called on the central bank to normalize monetary policy, due to improvements in the economy -- though he added "monetary policy will remain exceptionally accommodative" amid normalization. Elsewhere, commodities are getting a lift, as Saudi Arabia's airstrike against rebels in Yemen is driving crude sharply higher.
Futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) are nearly 99 points below fair value.
The Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) saw 987,157 call contracts traded on Wednesday, compared to 684,767 put contracts. The resultant single-session equity put/call ratio slipped to 0.69, while the 21-day moving average held at 0.65.
