Global Markets Fall After Russia Orders Troops Into Ukraine

Global stock indexes and U.S. futures fell, while crude-oil futures climbed after Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered troops into two breakaway areas of Ukraine, bringing fears of all-out war to their highest level so far.  

U.S. stock futures fell sharply for a second day, meaning indexes are on course for losses when markets reopen following the Presidents Day holiday. Futures on the S&P 500 fell 1.8%, following a 2.1% loss Monday. Futures for the technology-heavy Nasdaq-100 declined 2.6%, adding to Monday’s almost 3% fall.
