Stock Market Today: September 17, 2019

Looking out to a new day and to the start of the consequential FOMC meeting today and tomorrow, we see that the principal indexes were mixed in Asia overnight. In Europe, the major bourses are showing early choppiness. In other markets, oil prices, up sharply yesterday following the hits on the Saudi oilfields, now are off a little this morning. Finally, Treasury note yields are easing slightly this morning. And ahead of the FOMC meeting, the U.S. equity futures are suggesting a narrowly lower opening when trading resumes this morning.
