Markets Are Slightly Lower

Don’t blink!

There’s actually a tiny bit of red on the board. If history is any guide it won’t last, but here’s the action.

US futures are down modestly, to the tune of 0.1%.

European markets are down by about the same degree.

As for news, there isn’t a ton going on. The world is waiting for two big events going on this week: The ECB meeting on Thursday and the Non-Farm Payrolls report on Friday.

Everything before that is just throat-clearing.
