US markets start the year tomorrow, but Europe wasn’t bothered by the fact that New Year’s Day fell on a Sunday, thus depriving the people of a proper day off.So the trading began today.
Also, manufacturing data out of India and China also helped.
On the debt side of things, the Italian 10-year moved below 7% again, which is nice.
Short-term rates continue to fall in Europe as well.
