- The Dow Transports are leading US markets lower this morning as crude jumps two bucks and investors eye the situation in Iraq with growing concern. As of writing, the DJIA id down 0.29%, the S&P500 is down 0.36% and the Nasdaq is off 0.30%.

- The May retail sales numbers were soft, with m/m sequential growth much weaker than expected even as the annualized figure slightly topped expectations. Ex autos and the control figure (which is used to calculate GDP) were flat, disappointing expectations for a modest gain. Note however that the April figures were revised much higher.

- The security situation is decaying rapidly in Iraq. In the north, the Kurds moved to seize Kirkuk and its oil fields after the city was abandoned by Iraqi armed forces. Reportedly the Kurds have long coveted the city and its crude resources. Tikrit has changed hands several times, and Iraqi government forces manage to start putting up some resistance as ISIS gets closer to Bagdad. Fighting seems to be ongoing around the refinery town of Baiji. The US State Department indicated that it was prepared to begin providing assistance to Iraq, however reports in the New York Times also suggested that the Obama Administration has over recent months rejected requests by Iraq to bomb ISIS camps. Finally, there have also been reports that Iran is beginning to send small units to Iraq to bolster the government's defenses. WTI crude is very close to breaking above $106, two bucks above yesterday's level. Trading volume is nearly twice average levels. Spot gold is up 1%, at two-week highs.

- Airlines have seen very turbulent trading yesterday and today, thanks to several negative factors. Late on June 10th, the World Bank cut global growth forecasts, warning that while the developed world recovery is on track, the BRICs nations are a source of weakness. On June 11th, Germany's Lufthansa cuts its FY14 profit forecast to 1.0B from the 1.3-1.5B outlook offered at the beginning of May. The worsening situation in Iraq meanwhile continues to drive up crude prices. United fell ~5% on yesterday's session while the other majors fell 2-3% a piece. This morning American was down as much as 7%, Delta fell 5% while other majors were down 4%.

- Shares of hot exercise apparel name Lululemon are out of breath this morning, down more than 15% on weak guidance with first quarter results. The firm modestly topped expectations in its Q1, but Q2 earnings and revenue forecasts missed and the company said comps would remain in negative territory. It also cut its FY14 forecast. Multiple analysts cut ratings on the firm.

- Another couple of hot, small-cap biotechs are up big this morning. Onconova Therapeutics is up nearly 15% as investors await feedback for the company from the FDA on its rigosertib MDS treatment. Competitor and fellow MDS drug developer Sunesis Pharma is up more than 10%.
