The US is one day closer to a government shutdown, and markets are lower.
The selling isn’t too dramatic, although it began at about 3 AM ET.
European stocks are lower as well. Germany is down 0.2%. Italy is down 0.1%.
Asian stocks were mixed.
The big themes: The government shutdown/debt ceiling, which have yet to have a real impact on markets. And economic data, which will come hot and heavy next week, with a slew of numbers including non-farm payrolls and various PMI numbers.
