George Soros once said markets have a way of predicting the future because they create it. The 10-year Treasury yield just dropped below 2% again, a near 30-point decline in a handful of sessions since the Fed minutes squashed expectations for imminent QE. Falling equities and bond yields since that moment may change some minds at the FOMC.

    insane action by the market. Bond yields should've shot up. The FOMC needs to quit letting traders control the market. NO QE3! Maybe they should raise rates just to squash the speculators.

    If the market needs a constant supply of money to be alive then we don’t have a market but a comatose zombie.

    The steady drip of economic reality continues to intrude on the short term, stimulus focused trading floor. It puzzles me how otherwise intelligent people somehow think the US economy is insulated from the comprehensive economic decline underway.

    Alcoa's earnings are almost meaningless, as an overall market barometer, because their business is so heavily influenced by a single factor, China. I'm sure if they miss or guide down tonight, there will be handwringing and panic tomorrow, but it will signify nothing about the general state of the economy.

    It's about sentiment now. This weeks earnings will tell us if the correction continues next week.

    This must have something to do with fears in regards to earnings.
