12:55 EDTU.S. equities extended losses thanks to the wall of worry
U.S. equities extended losses thanks to the wall of worry in the credit markets, including the high-stakes Argentina default, BES plunge, Russian standoff, etc. The plunge in Chicago PMI also took a toll, along with the earlier rise in ECI, which came in hot on the heels of yesterday's Fed upgrade on the inflation outlook. Note, the VIX equity volatility index is over 21% higher to clear 16.0 from lows of 14.28, compared to 11.4 just a week ago. At 16.28 that's the highest level since April 18. The NASDAQ comp dropped over 2% lower earlier, while the Dow and S&P are 1.5-1.6% down. In terms of the Dow, deepest losses are on NIKE -2.9%, Exxon -2.6% and UnitedHealth -2.4%, while the shallowest losses are on Coke -0.28%, P&G -0.5% and UT -0.55%.

11:50 EDTArgentina debt holdout fund Aurelius Capital
Argentina debt holdout fund Aurelius Capital said they've received no credible proposals for a private debt sector purchase worthy of serious consideration. It has been approached in the past to sell its untendered Argentine debt, but press reports about other approaches have been "inaccurate." This seems to refer to rumors that JP Morgan is brokering a private deal, while an Argentinean bank coalition has also been rumored to putting a deal together to satisfy the renegade fund debt holders. Aurelius seems to suggest that nothing serious has been tabled yet ahead of the next round in the courts on Friday. Wall Street continues to suffer at the hands of Fed tightening concerns after ECI and credit contagion.
