Market Sell Off to Continue as Dow Futures Get Hit

Source: CNBC

U.S. stock futures opened lower Wednesday amid lingering anxiety about a possible economic slowdown and continued murkiness around trade relations with China.

On Wednesday evening, futures initially indicated that the Dow Jones Industrial Average would open 400 points lower. Dow futures fell as much as 486 points at their lows. Markets have since recovered and, as of 6:36 p.m., ET, indicated that the Dow would open more than 200 points lower on Thursday.

1. Are the Asian exchanges trading yet?

I'm going to bed soon, so I won't find out for several hours.

It's not as if I have any orders to buy or sell there.

Thanks.

3. Two days in a row of 3% losses. Are we winning yet?

He knows the best people.

He is the best negotiator of all time.

He is the most successful businessman ever.

I'm so happy to see my retirement fund dropping so fast and far. How about you?

7. Bernie Sanders on Trump's China Tariffs...

Who is the original tariff man? Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump?

"I strongly support imposing stiff penalties on countries like China, Russia, South Korea and Vietnam to prevent them from illegally dumping steel and aluminum into the U.S. and throughout the world. American steel and aluminum workers need our help, and they need it now, but not at the expense of farmers, workers, small businesses and consumers in Vermont and throughout this country," Sanders said.

10. Maybe the market will speak loud enough for the truth-deaf bonehead to hear.

Trump's been tweeting a recent outlier Rasmussen poll this morning gratuitously claiming 50% approve. As if to cover his lying eyes to the only votes where it's really on the line: the market and the midterms.
