01[11:45] {@Threei}  The excellent GDP data has further strengthened the greenback and helped send the dollar index out to nine-year highs. EUR/USD dipped below 1.2180 and USD/JPY is headed for 121. USD/RUB remains around 55 following reports that Russia PM Medvedev told the country's largest state exporters to sell off their foreign currency reserves to help stabilize the currency.
01[11:46] {@Threei}  WTI crude is once again hovering around $55 this morning. Gulf OPEC members were commenting earlier that they expect global oil prices to rebound to $70-80 by the end of 2015 as the global economic recovery revives demand. In a CNBC spot, T Boone Pickens said lower North America rig counts and shale industry consolidation would help the US energy sector in 2015.
01[11:46] {@Threei}  Biotech is getting hit hard for a second consecutive session this morning as traders examine the repercussions of the Express Scripts/AbbVie deal. The Nasdaq index is being pulled lower by the losses, and the Nasdaq Biotech index is down 3.3% as of writing, its biggest intraday loss since April.
