At last check, July-dated crude futures were down 1.8% at $49.67 per barrel. Financial stocks have been particularly hard hit, with Goldman Sachs Group Inc (NYSE:GS) and JPMorgan Chase & Co.

The top stock on the Big Board is Emerge Energy Services LP (NYSE:EMES), rocketing 21.4% higher to trade at $11.71. While the specific catalyst is unclear, Bloomberg speculates the rally may be due to a delayed reaction to a recent Goldman Sachs note, which suggested the company could sell its fuels business for up to $50 million.

The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) is up 1.4 points, or 9.7%, at 16.06.
