CNN has Dow futures at +19; Bloomerg has them at -527. I'm leaning towards believing Bloomberg, but anyone know where they really stand at this point?

I find you must do a refresh of the page on CNN, Bloomberg and even CNBC to get a more realistic value.

Simon, in a situation like this, which is the true reflection of what is likely to happen when the markets open - the combined figure over the two days or the move today? I would guess that the US won't simply ognore the futures drop of yesterday, but would today's less negative futures reduce the drop at the open?

Before you get excited remember that Dow futures were traded yesterday and that the market closed at 12099,30 on Friday soo that means that the Dow and S&P are in for a bad start they are at 11590 and 1261 respectively at present. This and the associated poor results with Bank of America and others to post today it is not common sense to be long BUT I might be wrong.
