It's been a volatile day of trading following yesterday's selloff, with stocks currently swimming in red ink at midday. China-based stocks are getting some relief, as the negative sentiment that permeated the market yesterday over the country's lockdowns appears to have shifted, giving oil prices a boost as well. 

Meanwhile, investors are unpacking plenty of economic data stateside. The S&P Case-Shiller U.S. home price index fell 1.2% in September for its third-straight monthly decline, roughly matching analyst estimates of a 1.2% decrease. A survey of consumer confidence also fell to 100.2 in November -- its lowest level in four months.

The stock has been steadily rising since its September lows, and is today looking to close above its 200-day moving average for the first time since January. Year-to-date, the equity is down roughly 70%.

Conversely, Israel's Elbit Systems Inc (NASDAQ:ESLT) is slipping after its third-quarter results missed estimates. Down 9.9% at $168.22 at last check, the stock is trading at its lowest levels since February. Year-to-date, ESLT is sporting a 3.4% loss.
