    • World shares are taking another beating amid further turmoil in the Chinese stock market, where equities were suspended for the second time this week after tumbling more than 7% in the first half hour of trade.
    • What's triggering the panic selling? The continued slide in the renminbi is weighing heavily on market sentiment, as it suggests all the government's stimulus efforts aren't working. Why? A currency devaluation is seen as a last-ditch effort to boost exports, and the fear is China won't be able to maintain its growth targets.
    • Today's yuan midpoint was set at 6.5646 per dollar, 0.51% weaker than the previous rate, marking the biggest fall between daily fixings since the currency's major devaluation in mid-August.

    • A lot of headlines are blaming weak data out of China - where the services PMI fell to a 17-month low - but that's pretty weak sauce for sparking a global selloff. Besides, the Shanghai Composite rose 2.25% overnight. There was also news out of North Korea, which says it successfully detonated a hydrogen bomb.
    • Oil continues to slide, with WTI crude down another $0.95 per barrel to $35.02. Brent crude touched an 11-year low of $35.11.
    • Dow and S&P 500 futures are down 1.55%, and Nasdaq 100 by 1.8%. Europe's lower by a similar amount at midday.
    • Gold is ahead $7 per ounce to $1,085 and the 10-year Treasury yield is lower by five basis points to 2.19%.

    • Following a strong close yesterday, U.S. index futures were nicely in the green for most of the overnight session, but began taking on water a couple of hours ago, and are now down about 0.6% across the board.
    • Asia closed with modest losses as Beijing's move to prop markets sent Shanghai higher by about 3% in that market's final hour (it still closed down 0.25%). Europe's given up early gains and is now modestly lower.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is down three basis points to 2.23%, gold is up $4 per ounce to $1,079, and oil is down $0.12 per barrel to $36.63.

    • Although stocks fell Thursday and declined again Monday, equities look likely to open today's session with gains, suggesting a so-called Santa Claus rally may still be in the cards. U.S. futures: Dow +0.5%, S&P +0.4%, Nasdaq +0.5%.
    • The rally is the tendency for stocks to rise over the last five trading sessions of December and the first two trading sessions of January.
    • World shares are also in the green, oil is hovering at $37/bbl and the 10-year Treasury yield +2 bps at 2.24%.
    • Coming up: Three new reports this morning will indicate how the U.S. economy performed in the final months of 2015, including international trade data, S&P/Case-Shiller home prices and the consumer confidence index.

    • U.S. futures are heading lower to start the final week of the year, as traders head back to work following the holiday weekend. Dow and S&P -0.5%, Nasdaq -0.4%.
    • European shares are also dipping, following a slump in Asia, where China led losses on declining industrial profits and a looming revamp of the nation's IPO system.
    • In the commodities market: Brent and WTI crude are in the heart of a battle for which benchmark will trade at a premium and gold is down by $4 an ounce.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is flat at 2.24%.

    • An early bounce from yesterday's sharp selloff doesn't look to be in the cards, with Dow and S&P 500 futures lower by 0.45%, and Nasdaq 100 by 0.25%.
    • The price of crude oil seems to be driving things these days, and its lower by 1.4% to $34.47 on the Jan. contract and $35.85 on Feb. (which becomes the lead contract today). After falling to crisis-era lows yesterday, gold has bounced back $7 per ounce to $1,057.
    • The Nikkei was the big loser in Asia overnight, falling 1.9%, and Europe's off about 1% at midday.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is down to 2.20% vs. about 2.34% at the time of the Fed rate hike.
