12:00 EDTChesapeake Energy shares were halted
Chesapeake Energy shares were halted after tumbling 51% amid reports that it has hired a restructuring advisors. Debtwire reported that the natural gas driller hired Kirland & Ellis to restructure a $9.8 B debt load, according to Bloomberg. Of course, that's after a 93% decline over the past 12-months, but it has added to the credit market jitters this morning that are negatively feeding back on the equity market. It's the biggest decliner in the S&P 500, which itself is 2.1% lower no the day. Chesapeake reportedly denied plans to declare bankruptcy subsequently.

The $30 B 6-month was awarded at 0.420%, through the 0.435% at the bid deadline. There were $115.0 B in bids for a 3.86 cover, identical to last week's and better than the 3.74 average.

FX Action: USD-CAD is marginally off its earlier session highs of 1.3977, trading into 1.3940 as WTI crude reclaims the $30 handle, after basing at $29.58 into the open.

08:40 EDTHedge funds are taking aim at investment grade debt
Hedge funds are taking aim at investment grade debt according to a WSJ report (subscription), betting that blue chip debt will be especially vulnerable to an economic downdraft. Given the heavy corporate issuance in the wake of the financial crisis and demand for higher yielding investment grade paper, marginal rate rises could substantially increase debt roll-over costs even for firms outside of the obviously vulnerable sectors like energy and junk, which are already trading at 70 cents on the dollar. Last week the spread between Treasuries and IG bonds topped 2% for the first time since June 2012. The article cited recent episodes of spread widening by the likes of AMEX and AT&T after earnings issues came up.
08:25 EDTCanada Housing Permits Preview
Canada Housing Permits Preview: Analysts expect permits to rise 5.0% in December after the 19.6% plunge in November. Analysts expect a bounce in multi-unit start values to drive the total permit gain in December. Looking back at November, the substantial pull-back in total permit values was driven by a 56.0% drop in the value of permits in Alberta. Analysts saw the impact of that permit plunge in the January housing starts report, where a big drop in Alberta starts drove total starts to a 165.9k rate in January from the 172.5k clip in December.
