Oil fell as the U.S. dollar index and treasuries rose on renewed worries about Greece that sent the Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P about 1.5% lower.


“A disorderly Greek default would cause more than a trillion euros ($1.3 trillion) of damage to the euro zone and could leave Italy and Spain dependent on outside help to stop contagion spreading, the main bondholders group has said.


Greek private creditors have until Thursday night to say whether they will participate in a bond swap that is part of a bailout and restructuring deal to help it manage its finances and meet a debt repayment on March 20.


Investors will lose almost three-quarters of the value of their debt in the exchange. Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos told Reuters on Monday it was the best deal they would get and those who did not sign up would still be forced to take losses.”


Among the big names making news in the market today were Merck, Lehman Brothers, Qualcomm, and Oaktree.
