European indices are a touch higher as equities look tentative as well. US futures are mixed with S&P 500 futures up close to 0.1% while Nasdaq futures are down 0.1%.
Looking at the bond market, 10-year Treasury yields continue to push higher on the session to 1.26% now, up 4.5 bps on the day, keeping the bounce over the past few days.
