A few minutes ago, I woke up as I typically do, reaching blearily for my iPad at the side of the bed, interested to see what color the ES and NQ are. This morning was especially important, since I didn’t know precisely when the Powell speech details were going to be released.

Through my bleary eyes, for a millisecond I thought I was a green “60” (in other words, the ES up 60 points) and my heart skipped a bit, but the screen refreshed and it showed both the ES and NQ down double digits. Apparently whatever it was that made them spike down had happened just a few seconds before I turned on my iPad (good timing on my part), so I fired up Twitter to see what was going on.

The first tweet I saw was this:
