Stocks trying to claw way back after a nervous first hour of trading which saw prices trade below yesterdays lows for all 3 major Indices.Fang Stocks especially NFLX have rallied back from sustainable losses and Boeing has not collapsed like her Dow friend, CAT did yesterday.10 year yields have maintained a hold above 3% yield level.
