Nasdaq 2,256.57 -5.60 (-0.25%)
S&P 500 1,274.24 -1.29 (-0.10%)

Nasdaq Volume 116,245,000

09:15 am : S&P futures vs fair value: -0.5. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: -4.0.

09:03 am : S&P futures vs fair value: -0.1. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: -2.0. Traders retain a wait-and-see stance ahead of Bernanke's monetary policy report. The price of crude futures contracts are on the rise (+0.7%), but are holding at $60.00 per barrel. On the corporate front, Merrill Lynch (MER) and BlackRock (BLK) confirmed their merger. Both boards have approved the plan to create one of the world's largest asset management firms, and the deal is expected to close in Q3. Today's earnings calendar features a good amount of upside results, but none should have much impact on the broader market. Contributing to the market's cautious stance is anticipation of results from Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and Applied Materials (AMAT) after today's bell.
