The Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:DJI) is slightly lower this morning, with uncertainty rattling the blue-chip index. In Ukraine, a Russian aid convoy crossed the border against Kiev's wishes -- a move that Ukrainian state security chief Valentyn Nalivaychenko described as a "direct invasion by Russia." Meanwhile, here at home, traders are on pins and needles ahead of this morning's speech from Fed Chair Janet Yellen at the Jackson Hole central bank symposium. Among those paying close attention to Yellen's remarks will be protesters from The Center for Popular Democracy, who have descended on the Jackson Hole retreat to rally against rate hikes. Despite the modest dip in Dow futures this morning, though, the index is still on pace to end the week firmly higher.
Futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:.DJI) are more than 6 points below fair value.
