Yesterday night it looked as though Thursday would be another big liquidation party, as futures were lower, along with precious metals and copper.Remember, copper got crushed yesterday, a move interpreted by many as a big marker of weakness in China.

Well, right now, everything’s in the green.

Gold for example, is up to $1633/oz, which is about $50/oz higher than it was just 6 or so hours ago.

As for equities, Europe is mostly up (Italy +0.4%, France 0.2%) and US futures are up in the range of just under 1%. The big event of the day: Germany just approved an expansion of the expanded European bailout fund.

The only ominous bit from last night: Another 1% decline in Shanghai, the market that has everyone worried.
