As if there wasn't enough news for the market to ignore, here is another. NBC reports that a subway train has derailed in Queens, the MTA says. FDNY was responding to the Broadway and 65th Street area in Woodside, and reported heavy smoke conditions. Authorities say the train that derailed is a Manhattan-bound F train on the express track. The MTA could not immediately say how many wheels derailed. Riders should expect delays on the E, R, F and M lines.
