8:19 am: Portion of yield curve briefly inverts

The 3-month Treasury bill yield was briefly higher than the 10-year yield in the early morning hours New York time.

8:10 am: Stock futures rise as Wall Street tries to rebound from worst day in more than 3 months

Wall Street is trying to rebound from its worst session since October, with U.S. stock futures trading higher. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are up more than 140 points, while S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures pointed to solid opening gains. On Monday, the Dow dropped more than 450 points and wiped out its gains for the year as coronavirus fears deepened. But while futures pointed to a decent start, not everyone is ready to look past the coronavirus fallout. CNBC’s Jim Cramer said in a tweet: “I wouldn’t trust the market until the future are down, perhaps dramatically to flush out those who think the virus is unstoppable.” —Imbert
