Daily Risk On/Off Heat Map

08:45 GMT- Current Market Conditions:
Markets remain in a RISK-OFF posture following the sharp sell-off  in U.S. equities yesterday following a number of items that by themselves should not have triggered such a violent response.. Far East equities closed mostly lower today.  Bourses in Europe are mostly weaker. U.S. share futures are higher, but confidence is still shaky.

In overseas activity, trade in the U.S. 10-yr remains volatile. The plummet in the yield yesterday was particularly troubling for many for what it implied. It is currently yielding 2.081%. 10-yr yields in the bund and gilts remain remarkably low as well today. Peripheral bond yields are higher. The sharp spike higher in. Greek yields this week has not gotten much play, but is worth watching.

The heat map color scheme of interest rates reflects yields.
