  • Mon, Aug. 24, 12:32 PM
    • Stocks are down about 1% (and the Nasdaq just -0.3% as some tech names turn green) -- a bad day on many occasions, but a major clawback from the Dow's 1,000-point-lower opening minutes today, with some more aggressive bargain hunting going on.
    • The Dow's down just 140 now. Advancers at the NYSE are up to just under 200, against nearly 3,000 trading in the red. Apple and Intel are the Dow reps that are in positive ground.
    • The VIX is around 37 after jumping near 50. Earlier, the NYSE invoked Rule 48 (allowing stocks to open without indications) for the first time since the Global Financial Crisis.
    • The dollar is still down against major currencies: -2.6% against yen, down 1.2% against the Swiss franc. The euro was up 1.6% against the dollar. Nymex WTI crude recovered a bit but is still down 3.9% to $38.87.

    • Down 0.5-0.7% for most of the session, the major averages have rallied to nearly unchanged with 75 minutes to go in the session.
    • If anything, the FOMC statement leaned hawkish as the central bankers brushed off the Q1 slowdown as weather-related and gave no indication that a June rate hike is off the table.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield was as high as 2.07% this session, but has slipped back to 2.03%. 30-day Fed Funds futures still aren't seeing liftoff until late Q3 or early Q4.
    • Previously: FOMC: Q1 slowdown "transitory" (April 29)
