    'Hard to imagine an uglier morning': JPMorgan

    According to JPMorgan's Adam Crisafulli, "the two things markets hate most" – negative central bank rates and poor financial-sector headlines – are pushing today's trade deep into the red. Adding to these woes, states Crisafulli, are "very fragile sentiment, extreme risk aversion, [Fed chair Janet] Yellen's testimony, and CSCO's cautious macro commentary".
