CME GLOBEX RECAP: Early Wednesday, U.S. stocks on the Dow Jones Industrials
are trading slightly lower, a quiet start to the day and similar to roughly
steady trading in Europe. The yield on 10-year T-notes has backed down from the
May 9 high of 3.17% and is now around 2.76% as concerns of a slowing economy
have eased the pressure on rates to go higher. Wednesday's reports include U.S.
durable goods orders at 7:30 a.m. CDT, the Energy Department's weekly inventory
report at 9:30 a.m. and minutes from the latest Fed meeting at 1 p.m.

Average up 48.38 at 31,928.62 and the S&P 500 down 32.27 at 3,941.48 as the

a half years. Early Tuesday, June Dow Jones futures are trading down 18 points.
