Futures little-changed ahead of employment report
- Futures are about flat ahead of this morning's Non-farm Payrolls report.
- Europe's little-changed and Asia was mostly higher overnight.
- The action yesterday (and today, we suspect) was in U.S. Treasury yields, where the 10-year pushed all the way to 3% in overnight trade, the first time at that level since July 2011. It's since pulled back to 2.97% as traders await the 8:30 AM print.
