Futures edge up along with bond yields ahead of ISM report
- Stock index futures edge a tiny bit higher as November gets underway following a big October for equity markets. We'll see if the national ISM data due at 10 ET repeats the blowout beat of the Chicago PMI yesterday.
- Europe's off moderately and Asia was mixed overnight.
- Treasury yields continue to back up in wake of the one-two punch of the FOMC's unexpectedly hawkish stance and the Chicago PMI print; the 10-year up another 2 basis points to 2.57%.
