The DJIA is currently down 0.21%, the S&P500 is down 0.34% and the Nasdaq is down 0.47%.

- Analysts are responding to Draghi's assertion at yesterday's post-decision press conference that the ECB would be comfortable taking action in June, if it were needed. With the power of his words alone, Super Mario forced EUR/USD to 1.3850 yesterday morning and as of writing the pair is at post-meeting lows around 1.3750. Analysts are now forecasting cuts of both the Main Refit Rate and Deposit Facility of 10-15bps at the next ECB meeting. June Bund futures hit a fresh contract high while the 10-year German govt yield hit a 12-month low below 1.44%. Note however that the 10-year benchmark US yield are a bit higher today, around 2.610%.

- The talking heads are pouring over rumors that Apple is reportedly negotiating a buyout of Beats Music for up to $3.2 billion. Shares of the company are are down more than 1%. If it goes through, the deal would be its largest ever and its first purchase of an established brand, marking a big departure from its previous strategy.

- Ralph Lauren beat consensus estimates in its fourth quarter on double-digit growth in both earnings and revenue, however the firm's weaker quarterly and full-year revenue guidance is hitting the shares this morning. The company's FY revenue outlook isn't even very far below consensus, although the first quarter revenue view is less than half the expected amount. Shares of RL are down 5%.

- Shares of Gap Inc are up more than 4% after the firm posted very strong monthly comps for April. Analysts were expecting another decline in comp sales, while the firm delivered 9% growth, buoyed by growth at Banana Republic and especially Old Navy. Guidance for first quarter were right in line.
