Crude "Flash-Crash" As Stocks Open Higher

S&P futures are up 10 points (though below Friday’s highs) as they open amid better-than-average volume for the Sunday evening session. Treasury futures prices have dropped notably implying around a 6-7bps yield increase with the 10Y trading around 2.84% (above Friday’s high yield). The USD is modestly higher as JPY weakens but it is the oil complex that saw early chaos as it flash-crashed over $3.50 at the open before bouncing back. WTI is now holding steady at around $106. Gold and Silver followed WTI’s lead with the yellow metal dropping over $20 at the open before bouncing back.
