December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading lower shortly after the cash market opening. Blue chip stocks are being pressured on Thursday by rapidly rising interest rates and the fear that the Fed may have to raise rates more aggressively in order to prevent the economy from overheating. This morning, the benchmark 10-year Treasury note yield reached its highest level since 2011. It took out 3.2 percent before settling back to 3.185 percent.
