Markets are off their worst levels, but remain marginally lower a bit more than an hour before the bell. The Dow (DIA +0.1%) is actually in the green, helped by a big move in H-P on a recycling of the Icahn-buying rumor. Apple continues a decent post-earnings run, +2.2%. Nasdaq 100 (QQQ -0.2%). S&P 500 (SPY -0.1%).
