Yesterday, stocks staged a bit of a rally, bouncing back from heavy selling in the previous week.

Today? Things are just looking so so. After being up more than 1%, Japan rose just 0.6%.

China tumbled another 1.4% last night.

Europe is in the red, with Germany’s DAX index down 0.34% and the British FTSE 100 off 0.1%.

These aren’t dramatic moves, but there’s not showing any impressive bounceback of follow through.

US futures are basically flat.

Also, money supply data out of China was weak.
