After yesterday’s Italy-inspired morning freakout, things calmed down fairly quickly. And indeed that’s the story today: More calmness.Europe is generally higher.

Italy is up 0.3%.

Spain is up 0.6%.

Germany is up 0.03%.

Nothing major. Just is what it is.

US futures are down a tad, despite headlines over Fiscal Cliff optimism. Really not a big deal.

Asia was a bit negative.
