    • 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.

    • Germany's (NYSEARCA:EWG4.3% decline is leading European losses.

    • 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.

    • The S&P 500 (SPY -0.9%) has given up early gains alongside oil's (USO -2.1%) decline back under $35 per barrel. For now, junk bonds are going to be tied to the oil chart and HYG and JNK are each down 0.6% after opening higher.
    • Naturally leading the S&P 500 lower are the energy names (XLE -1.8%).

    • Things are volatile, but stocks are somewhat higher and bonds somewhat lower (yields higher) since the Fed's expected boost to interest rates, and little change in the bank's economic projections.
    • The S&P 500 (SPY +0.6%) has added just under half a percent since 2 ET, and the 10-year Treasury yield has added one basis point to 2.29%. TLT, TBT flat on the session.
    • Previously: Fed projections: 1.4% Fed Funds by the end of 2016 (Dec. 16)
    • Previously: Fed officially puts an end to ZIRP (Dec. 16)
