The S&P 500 futures are down 8 points and are trading 0.1% below fair value. The Nasdaq 100 futures are up 5 points and are trading slightly above fair value. The Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are down 99 points and are trading 0.3% below fair value.

Equity futures are a little lackluster this morning amid a barrage of earnings results.

Treasury yields are down this morning. The 10-yr note yield is down six basis points to 4.16% and the 2-yr note yield is down three basis points to 4.45%.

Energy complex futures are mixed. WTI crude oil futures are down 1.0% to $83.73/bbl while natural gas futures are up 0.4% to $5.22/mmbtu.
