09:25 EDTNYSE has invoke "Rule 48" ahead of the open
NYSE has invoke "Rule 48" ahead of the open which provides for "exemptive relief" in the event of extreme market volatility conditions, which allows for relief of suspension of trade temporarily following a market-wide halt. The winter storm could provide some more cover, though it is the earnings blizzard that is causing the chop.
09:20 EDTFed hike forecasts are being revised
Fed hike forecasts are being revised in the wake of this recent round of disappointing earnings and data misses. Among the first is Morgan Stanley, which has reportedly deferred its call to March of 2016 from January 2016. As the energy price and dollar typhoon continues to wrack the markets, others are expected to follow suit and Goldman is expected to not be far behind, according to sources.

09:15 EDTThe U.S. durables report sharply underperformed
The U.S. durables report sharply underperformed, both via big December declines across the orders and equipment data, with and without transportation or defense, and big downward November revisions that left three months of notable underperformance for orders and equipment. Shipments and inventories slightly beat assumptions after restrained factory data in the payroll and industrial production reports, though the data were bad news for the GDP growth outlook on net. Analysts still expect 3.5% Q4 GDP growth, but with a -1% (was +1%) figure for the equipment component. Inventories are poised to add $15 B to Q4 GDP growth, after a $2.6 B subtraction in Q3 that left an already-elevated $82.2 B accumulation rate. Our Q1 GDP estimate remains at 2.5%, though today's data signal downside risk. Analysts expect a flat December factory and overall inventory figure, given today's 0.5% factory durable inventory rise. Analysts assume a 2.2% December factory orders drop with a flat factory shipments figure, given an assumed 1.0% price-led decline for nondurable shipments and orders.

09:00 EDTFX Action: The dollar's ongoing strength
FX Action: The dollar's ongoing strength, along with sagging commodity prices have begun to show up on corporate income statements. Earnings reports from Proctor and Gamble, Pfizer, and Caterpillar this morning all missed street expectations, with the strong dollar, and soft commodity prices mentioned as major reasons for profit slippage. In addition, while Microsoft and 3M profits met earnings expectations, these companies downgraded guidance for the remainder of the year, due to dollar strength. It is only January, but based on the heavily negative market reaction seen on Wall Street this morning, red flags are being raised concerning equity market performance in the coming months.
