Stock index futures are little-changed as the pace of December quarter earnings reports begins to pick up some steam.

Europe's marginally lower, and Shanghai was the big mover overnight in Asia, up 2.2%. The U.K. has its own rate hike fears after the unemployment rate dropped to 7.1% (no word on labor force participation) - the BOE has an announced threshold of 7%.

The 10-year Treasury yield is up one basis point to 2.85% and gold is off a hair to $1,240 per ounce.
