Futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) are cautiously higher this morning, set to slightly recover from yesterday's Fed meeting minutes that put Wall Street in a tailspin. The energy sector leads the rally, with February-dated crude last seen up nearly 2% at $79.37 per barrel. Nasdaq-100 Index (NDX) futures are stuck in the red though, while S&P 500 Index (SPX) futures hover right around breakeven. Investors have a lot to unpack this morning, ranging from the start of earnings season, weekly jobless claims coming in at a higher-than-expected 207,000, and a 10-year Treasury yield climbing above 1.75%.

  • Signal says buy the dip on Pure Storage stock.
  • Enphase Energy stock was taking a breather before yesterday's selloff.
  • Plus, two notable post-earnings reactions; and COIN looks to snap skid.

Fed Minutes Take Toll on European Bourses

Asian markets were mostly lower on Thursday, mirroring stateside losses in the aftermath of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s December meeting minutes. Pacing the laggards was Japan’s Nikkei with a 2.9% drop, followed by South Korea’s Kospi, with a 1.1% loss. Elsewhere, China’s Shanghai Composite shed 0.3%, while Hong Kong’s Hang Seng bucked the downward trend with a 0.7% pop.

The Fed’s decision to taper economic stimulus by the summer is also weighing on European markets. With the exception of financial and insurance names, all other sectors are swimming in red ink, with tech stocks bearing the brunt of those losses. In turn, France’s CAC 40 is 1.3% lower at last check, while the German DAX carries a 1.2% deficit, and London’s FTSE 100 is down 0.6%.
