No weekend budget progress has futures tumbling

  • Stock index futures are off nearly 1% as no progress was made over the weekend towards a lifting of the debt cap. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew took to the Sunday morning talk shows to report his shrill warnings of disaster should the Treasury stop servicing its debt.
  • Europe is also off by about 1% and Asia was mostly lower overnight.
  • The 10-year Treasury yield is lower by two basis points to 2.63%.
