13:40 EDTDismay as Fed dove Bullard fails to rescue markets:
Dismay as Fed dove Bullard fails to rescue markets: Bullard optimistically is looking for the jobless rate to fall to 4.0-4.5% and noting that the outlook on growth is "relatively good" (in contrast to what the markets are pricing in). He's tracking GDP growth at 2.5-3.0% and is "more sanguine" on China than the markets and says the Fed doesn't react directly to the equity markets (shame), while he's undecided on September. He's reportedly speaking on Sirius XM Channel 111 on Wharton Business Radio. Guess someone else will have to step forward to perform a plunge protection operation on the markets today.

12:35 EDTU.S. VIX equity volatility blew out the summer top
U.S. VIX equity volatility blew out the summer top gapping out to highs of 24.49 today from a low of 13.73 as recently as Wednesday, before pulling back to 23.0. It would seem some complacency is finally coming out of the stock market, with the S&P 500 1.3% lower on the day and having cracked below the psych 2k level to lows of 1993.2 before resurfacing to 2,009. That took the VIX back to December 2014 levels when the VIX surged into year-end on Greek concerns. As analysts had been warning about the pennant pattern "which can precede a more aggressive breakout", the VIX sliced right through our 20.0 target. On the S&P it looks like investors aren't even waiting for the "death cross" (of 50- and 200-day m.a.s), which appears to be converging near 2,085, even as the index probes 2k.

11:45 EDTFX Action: USD-CAD has rallied to 1.3195 highs
FX Action: USD-CAD has rallied to 1.3195 highs, levels last seen on August 7, where the pairing topped out at 1.3197. WTI crude has made fresh 6.5 year lows of $40.11, and along with another decidedly risk-off session, has been the main CAD driver today. Offers are reportedly parked into 1.3200, though a break of the 1.3213 trend high seen on August 5 is expected to bring significant buy-stops into the market.
11:10 EDTEnergy Action: October NYMEX crude slipped to contract lows
Energy Action: October NYMEX crude slipped to contract lows of $40.17, before buyers returned, taking oil back over $40.40. Sources report solid fund bids in place into the psychological $40 level, though indicate that sell-stops will likely be a feature should the $39 handle appear. RBOB gasoline meanwhile, is down over 5 cents/gallon on the day, at $1.48, a new six month low.

09:30 EDTEuro$ rate futures pricing out September Fed hike:
Euro$ rate futures pricing out September Fed hike: the latest round of market contagion via China, EM and then global stocks has continued to buy more time for the Fed after the FOMC minutes revealed doubts on those counts earlier in the week. The December 2015 contract continues to forge higher, further reducing odds of a nearby hike. The contract jumped 3-ticks to highs of 99.53 (0.470% implied 3-month rate), before easing back to 99.515 (0.480%), compared to 99.455 (0.545%) pre-FOMC levels. The deferreds are 1.5-3.0 ticks firmer out the curve.
