Futures are under pressure this morning as global markets fall 1-2%. EuoStoxx50 drops 1.6%, FTSE down 0.75%, CAC40 hit for 1.5%, Deutche Bourse off 1.6%. In Asia, stocks are mixed, with some marginal green on the screen.

The real pressure is in the Middle East, where Dubai is getting slammed and other bourse are down 2% plus.

The S&P 500 has just regained its 50 day moving average, and despite a slew of negative headlines, US markets have been surprisingly resilient.

Watch to see if we have some sort of intraday recovery, or if things accelerate to the downside from here.
