US Futures are Slightly Lower This Morning as Investors Grew More Concerned About Lower Oil Prices

US futures are slightly lower this morning as investors grew more concerned about lower oil prices.  All 3 major US indices fell yesterday as oil fell, going into correction territory following yesterday’s 2 % drop.  Crude is trading around $43.50 and Brent is right around $46.00 a barrel.  In economic data, mortgage applications rose 0.6 percent and later today we will get data for existing home sales.  Markets in Asia closed mostly lower on the fall in oil prices except for the Shanghai index which closed higher after MSCI decided to add China A shares to its benchmark emerging market index.  European markets are trading lower led by the CAC.
