Rout in Stock Futures Trigger Trading Curbs… 10-year Treasury below 0.5%… Anxiety grips companies across world… ‘We’re past the point of containment’

Rout in Stock Futures Trigger Trading Curbs… Developing…

(Bloomberg) — Circuit breakers put a limit on a harrowing plunge in U.S. stock futures, but they’re also leaving traders in the dark as to how big losses may eventually get. Trading in other index price proxies suggested American stocks are at risk of the worst plunge since 2011.

In the midst of financial-market spasms as the day began in Asia Monday, trading in some of the world’s most popular equity contracts went quiet when declines reached 5%, setting off Chicago Mercantile Exchange limits that keep prices from falling further.

“These things are all designed to stop a market panic and cause a bit of a pause in trading,” said Shane Oliver, head of investment strategy and chief economist at AMP Capital Investors. “It can have the perverse effect of increasing the downward pressure on other markets, particularly until the U.S. market opens.”
