CME Globex Recap: Mixed equity trade overnight with U.S. futures flat to
slightly higher. For the week-to-date, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is off
3.3% which is on-track for its worst week since January. Investors have
certainly had a shift in mentality following the two-day FOMC meeting earlier
this week and a "taper tantrum" is probably an accurate description of the
action since Wednesday. Energy markets are weaker overnight with crude oil
almost $2 per barrel off its highest set Wednesday. The U.S. Dollar Index has
been bid most of the week but has reversed slightly overnight. Metals are
higher overnight, led by silver which is up 2.4%. Grain markets are all solidly
higher overnight, led by the soy complex with soybean oil up 3-5%. Grains have
been so incredibly volatile of late, it's hard to take anything off the table
with respect to this Friday close.

Average down 210.22 at 33,823.45 and the S&P 500 down 1.84 at 4,223.70 while
