Global summary

U.S. markets were down slightly mid-day (realistically, unchanged) as we await President Obama’s press conference at 8:00pm ET. Global markets were mixed, again waiting word on US rescue packages. The real surprise is in the currency markets with the US Dollar down everywhere, notably against the British Pound (down .85%). Treasury yields are also much higher with 3.05% for the 10-year, 3.7% for the 30-year (see the UK Telegraph article, below).
