Before the bell: Stocks slide as Ukraine tensions flare

The Before the Bell report is constantly updated to reflect the latest news developments and market moves in the premarket. Check back later for updates.

Escalating tensions in the Ukraine are starting to take their toll on global markets this morning, with European indexes -- especially Germany's DAX -- nursing losses. U.S. stock futures are in the red as well, although they came off their lows after durable goods orders last month fell less than expected. S&P 500 futures are currently down about 0.1 per cent.
