    Stock futures were mixed on Friday, Aug. 4, after a reading on the U.S. labor market showed higher job additions in July but in-line wage growth. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were up 0.22%, S&P 500 futures rose 0.11%, and Nasdaq futures gained 0.13%. The U.S. economy added more jobs than anticipated in July. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 209,000 last month, according to the Labor Department, above consensus of 180,000. The June jobs number was revised to 231,000 from 222,000, though the May figure was cut to 145,000 from 152,000. The unemployment rate decreased by 10 basis points to 4.3%,...

    They say that "life imitates art"...or is it the other way around...the lines are getting so blurred. In any event, we thought we would take this opportunity to highlight some of the most startling discoveries we found so far in Doug Stamper's...sorry, John Podesta's emails. You have to admit there are some similarities there and they even have the same position...hopefully the Clinton Foundation is receiving royalties from HBO...

    U.S. stock index futures indicated a lower open on Friday after the Chinese stock market and crude prices plunged. The Shanghai composite fell 3.51 percent and entered bear market territory, while Brent and WTI futures both held below $30 a barrel, down 4.3 percent and 5.8 percent, respectively. The pan-European STOXX 600 index fell nearly 2 percent. Dow futures fell more than 300 points, as the blue chips index was also dragged down by falls in Intel, Apple and Goldman Sachs. Intel reported better-than-expected earnings Thursday, but the stock is down about 6 percent in the premarket on Friday. Traders...

    ‘Markets are panicking,’ said Takako Masai, the head of research at Shinsei Bank in Tokyo. ‘Things are starting to look like the Asian financial crisis in the late 1990s. Speculators are selling assets that seem the most vulnerable.’ Even a last ditch attempt to rescue the market by introducing investment from pension funds failed to limit the serious losses as investors continue to flee the equity market.

    Tyler Durden 08/23/2015 Three weeks ago, when we last looked at the collapse in trade along what may be the most trafficked route involving China, i.e., from Asia to Northern Europe, we noted that while that particular shipping freight rate Europe had crashed some 23% on just one week, there was some good news: at least the Baltic Dry index was still inexplicably rising, and at last check it was hovering just above 1,100. That is no longer the case, and just as with everything else in recent months, the Baltic Dry dead cat bounce is now over, with the...

    AFP ^ | 24 Aug 15 | Unknown
    Moscow (AFP) - Russia's battered ruble dropped Monday to its lowest point this year as Asian and European stock markets nose-dived over concerns about the Chinese economy. Russia's dollar-denominated RTS index fell 4.21 percent at opening as the ruble tumbled to 70.92 against the dollar, its weakest against the greenback since December 2014. The ruble-denominated Micex meanwhile dropped by 1.76 percent. The plunge in oil prices and Western sanctions over Moscow's role in the Ukraine crisis have pummelled the Russian economy in recent months, with the ruble collapsing in value. Russia's recession worsened in the second quarter as the gross...

    U.S. stock index futures screamed lower, with Dow futures (Chicago Board of Trade: @DJ.1) tumbling more than 400 points, as fears surrounding the health of China's economy multiplied. These concerns saw the benchmark Shanghai Composite (Shanghai Stock Exchange: .SSEC) index notch up its biggest one-day percentage loss since 2007 on Monday, closing down 8.5 percent . Panic spread to European markets, with the pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 (FTSE International: .FTEU3) as much as 3 percent in early London trading. All major bourses were off a similar amount. The index has shed over $1 trillion in market value in August so far.

    Get your seams behind you AMD's CTO Mark Papermaster has been pushing what he calls the coming “Surround Computing Era”, and unveiled new processor architecture details, enabling technologies and design methodologies that will help drive it. Surround computing is apparently an “extension of pervasive and ambient computing trends” no less. It is when computing technologies are “a completely natural and seamless part of daily life”. Papermaster is proof of it, we can't see any seams on him at all, but that might be the idea. Talking at the Hot Chips conference, Papermaster said that surround computing imagines a world without keyboards...
