Four things to look into before investing in stocks

  1. Happy Friday?: There's a generally negative mood in the markets right now.
  2. Oil falls again: In commodities, crude oil futures are dipping by about 2% to trade around $45 per barrel. The chances of another slump in prices to near $20 per barrel are rising, Goldman Sachs said in a new report Friday. But the supply glut should ease in 2016 as OPEC's rivals -- and in particular the U.S. -- slash production, the International Energy Agency said.
  3. Earnings and economics: A few companies will open their earnings books before Friday trading begins. Mattress Firm (MFRM) and Kroger (KR) are among them.
  4. Russian rates: Russia's central bank is set to make a decision on interest rates at around 6:30 a.m. ET. The benchmark interest rate is currently set at 11% and has come down from a recent high of 17%. http://money.cnn.com/2015/09/11/investing/premarket-stocks-trading/index.html?iid=SF_LN
