Markets Are Going Nowhere

At the moment, we’re looking at a very quiet last day of the week.

Around the world, there isn’t much happening in markets.

Japan was up modestly. China was up decently (to the tune of 1.4%). Europe is mixed with some markets a little up, and others a little lower.

US futures are a bit higher.

Later today we get Michigan Consumer Sentiment, but that’s about it.

The big theme for the week: Data still kind of spotty, but markets still pretty buoyant.
