(Before It's News) / by Tyler Durden / Mar 7, 2017

After a turbulent overnight session on Monday morning, this morning traders settle at their desks to find a relatively calmer environment, with US equity futures down 0.2% to 2,371.75, while European stocks fell for a third consecutive day, and Asian markets which closed mixed (China up, Nikkei down, MXAP up 0.2%). Basic metals continue to slide following another drop in copper as a result of the biggest inventory inflow to LME warehouses in 15 years, coupled with worries about China’s telegraphed slowdown. Some have also pointed out that the market topped just in time for the SNAP IPO, which after crashing yesterday to below its IPO break price of $24, continued to sink in the pre-market this morning.

In addition to hopes about an imminent Fed rate hike shifting to concerns, as reported yesterday JPMorgan warned that hawkish Fed rhetoric has increased the likelihood for a short-term pullback after stocks hit the bank’s year-end target of 2,400 the previous week. The dollar rose modestly as a surge in corporate bond issuance pushed up Treasury yields.
