It’s quiet, but markets are in the green all around the world.
The big winner was Japan, which nicely reversed its Monday losses, gaining 2.6%.

Europe is up across the board, with Germany rising by 0.76%, Italy up 0.5%, and France rising 0.17%.
And US futures are higher as well.
Later today in the US we get retail sales data for the US.
