US futures are moving in the same direction. Dow futures are off over 60. S&P futures are down 8.

Most other key markets are pointing towards risk-aversion as well. The euro is slipping along with copper, palladium, and oil.

And the world’s favourite new bellwether, the aussie dollar, is down as well. Watch, soon you’ll be checking that first every day.

Gold is up modestly.
