    Market preview: Things are all looking a little calmer after yesterday's global sell-off, with U.S. stock futures tracking European shares higher. The S&P Mini is +0.6%. Notwithstanding, "we're in the first correction of the year," says Dudack Research's Gail Dudack. "I don't believe the correction process is quite over." And anyway, it would be "normal and healthy" for stocks to drop further. Goodyear Tire & Rubber (GT) jumps 6.2% on buyout news but is down from earlier highs. Later: EIA Petroleum Inventories
