- Stock index futures are marginally higher as markets try to regroup from yesterday's washout. Today brings the 8:30 ET release of the October jobs report and a strong one is likely to put the possibility of a December taper fully on the table. It's not a big number to beat as estimates are for a payroll gain of 120K and unemployment climbing to 7.3% from 7.2%.
- Europe's off about 1% as was Asia overnight.
- The 10-year Treasury yield is up a basis point at 2.61%.
- Index ETFs: SPY, QQQ, SH, DIA, SSO, SDS, PSQ, IVV, SPXU, UPRO, VOO, QID, DOG, TQQQ, RSP, SQQQ, DXD, QLD, RWL, EPS, SDOW, UDOW, DDM, BXUB, QQEW, QQQE, SFLA, TRND, BXUC, QQXT, BXDB, TNDQ
