U.S. Chicago PMI dipped to 54.4 in August from 54.7 in July. The erosion was contrary to expectations (median 54.9). The index was at a contractionary 49.4 in June and 46.2 in May following a 52.3 reading in April.

09:36 EDTMarket begins week back in the red
Stock futures were sharply lower throughout the pre-market trading session. The early weakness was attributed to reports out of China that they were stopping their large scale purchases of equities along with comments from Fed officials at the Jackson Hole conference suggesting they were ready to begin the interest rate liftoff in 2015. The futures action led to a lower open for the broader market, which managed to close last week with gains despite the market's volatile daily moves. In early trading, the Dow fell 115 points, the Nasdaq dropped 21 points and the S&P declined 12 points.

08:55 EDTEnergy Action: NYMEX crude is down about 2.5%
Energy Action: NYMEX crude is down about 2.5% in early N.Y. trade, currently idling near $44.05 after ranging between $45.27 and $44.14 overnight. A fire and subsequent closure of a synthetic crude production facility in Canada has provided some support, with the 325k bpd plant staying off-line for an unknown period. Bigger picture however, the market remains extremely over-supplied, by upwards of 3 M bpd, while the demand outlook continues to be foggy. As a result, oil prices are likely to remain in sell-the-rally mode for the foreseeable future. Last week's stellar gains had the effect of squaring up an oversold market, with the vast majority of shorts squeezed out of their positions. As a result, another sell-off may be much easier to achieve in the coming sessions. September RBOB gasoline futures expire at the close today, and most activity is now in the October contract, which is down 1.8%, trading at $1.372/gallon. Natural gas is at $2.65/M BTU, remaining heavy on the back of high inventory levels.

08:00 EDTN.Y. FX Outlook
N.Y. FX Outlook: The dollar is marginally lower as compared to Friday's closing levels, though activity was relatively light overall. China equity markets pulled up from their worst levels into the close, alleviating some pressure on safe haven flows, though U.S. futures continue to indicate a lower Wall Street open, as longer dated Treasury yields are down. EUR-USD sits near 1.1205, with USD-JPY at 121.30, cable near 1.5410, and USD-CAD near 1.3250. The U.S. calendar reveals the August Chicago PMI at 9:45 EDT, and the August Dallas Fed index at 10:30 EDT.
07:50 EDTU.S. Treasury Opening Outlook (Aug 31):
U.S. Treasury Opening Outlook (Aug 31): Fischer Part II: the Fed Vice Chairman indicated over the weekend that "there is good reason to believe that inflation will move higher as the forces holding down inflation dissipate further." Along with additional equity declines in Asia and Europe, that's put a little more negative tone on pre-open U.S. indices, but it has left longer-dated Treasuries a bit firmer relative to Friday as the Fed's inflation mantra has been one of hope over substance for some time. This continues to play out in the form of curve flattening, with the 2-year yield still stuck over 0.730%, while the 10-year is back down 3 bp to 2.16% and the spread between the two at +143 bp. In the U.S., Monday's calendar reveals the August Chicago PMI PMI, seen rising slightly to 55.0 and the August Dallas Fed index, neither of which should stir things up too much. The markets will however, begin looking ahead to Tuesday's manufacturing ISM, and Wednesday's August ADP jobs survey, which will see the start of handicapping for Friday's official jobs report. Incoming data between now and the September 17 meeting will be watched like a Fed hawk, as markets attempt to divine the odds for a rate hike. Dovish Boston Fed president Rosengren speaks on the economic outlook before the Forecasters Club of NY from 13:10 ET.
07:20 EDTVolatility ready to continue with Dow pointing to early losses
Stock volatility looks set to continue as equity futures suggest another triple digit opening loss for the Dow. Fed officials speaking at the Jackson Hole conference indicated they were still ready to begin interest rate hikes in 2015. In China, the government has reportedly decided to scale back its large scale purchases of equities while economic data in Japan remains soft. The U.S. calendar will include the Chicago purchasing manager's report, ISM data from the Milwaukee region and manufacturing data from the Dallas Fed.

03:05 EDTFX Update: Markets have commenced on a risk-off theme
FX Update: Markets have commenced on a risk-off theme as Chinese stock markets ebb following a Beijing announcement that large-scale purchases to prop up the market are now a thing of the past. This weighed on regional equities, Asian and commodity currencies. The dollar traded mixed, trading moderately firmer against the dollar-bloc units and Asian currencies, while losing ground to the haven currencies of the euro and yen. EUR-USD rose to the mid-1.12s, recovering from Friday's foray below 1.1200. USD-JPY ebbed back to the 121.00 area, down from one-week highs at 121.75. Fed vice chairman Fischer said over the weekend that "there is good reason to believe that inflation will move higher as the forces holding down inflation dissipate further," while BoE Governor Carney said that China uncertainty was unlikely to change UK monetary policy. SNB Chairman Jordan, meanwhile, confirmed over the weekend that the central bank had intervened in EUR-CHF in late June, as was widely suspected at the time. He also affirmed that Swiss interest rates will stay negative "for some time."
