US futures are ticking up modestly.

Spanish bond yields are ticking higher again. The 10-year is nearly back at 6%. The 2-year is headed higher as well.

In Asia, things were mixed. The Shanghai Composite and Korea’s KOSPI were both down over 1%. Japan was just down modestly.

UPDATE: The selloff is beginning. Italy is now off over 0.6%.

UPDATE II: Wild day. Now markets are jumping.

Here’s Italy again, spiking.

There’s a good chance that the latest headlines from the IMF — that emerging economies stand to give more — is behind the latest rally.
