  • Dow futures drop 300 points as oil spirals lower

    01/15/2016 5:18:57 AM PST · by mykroar · 16 replies ^ | 1/15/16 | CNBC Staff
    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...

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.

    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.

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...

    If you get reamed don't say you weren't warned. In 2008 there were repeated instances where the futures gapped ~20 handles overnight, clearing out the stack and gapping over your stop, filling you on the other side for hideous losses. Stop orders are worthless when this happens -- all they do is lock in a loss as you fill on the other side (which usually is the extreme print) and then the market reverses some of the move, costing you twice.

    U.S. stock futures surged Monday, tracking a rally in European markets as investors cheered a European Union plan designed to stave off a run on the euro. More than three hours before the start of trading, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures jumped 403 points higher to 10738. The S&P 500 futures soared 54.4 points to 1161.5 and Nasdaq 100 futures gained 79.25 points to 1927.75. Changes in futures do not always accurately predict early market moves after the opening bell.

    Forecasts for some of the coldest temperatures on record in Florida this weekend have heightened concerns about possible damage to the state's orange crop, sending orange juice futures as much as 7% higher early Friday. Florida's citrus industry has been under pressure all week owing to the freezing temperatures, which have so far caused only isolated damage to the 2009-10 orange crop. Frozen concentrated orange juice futures have gained 17% amid fears that crop damage could be substantial, something that hasn't happened in two decades. Frozen concentrated orange juice for March delivery, the most actively traded contract, was up 6%...
