The good times from yesterday have faded.The central question of the day is: What’s the fate of Italy? Today its yields are rising, as the 10-year bond carries an interest rate of 7.383%.
Italy’s FTSE MIB index is currently off 0.66%.
There’s a lot of interest in France today. There’s a report out that S&P could cut its outlook on the country’s debt within a matter of days.
French-German spreads are also modestly wider on the day.
The yield on German bunds is a bit lower, hinting that it’s still retaining some of that safe-haven lustre.
US futures are modestly lower.
