    • Germany, for one, is expecting its damage from China's slowdown to be containable, even as the Dax heads for bear market territory amid some panic selling today.
    • "We are following developments in China very closely," says a spokeswoman for the country's Economy Ministry. "The immediate consequences for the German economy should, however, be limited ... Exports to China are important for Germany but only account for 6.6%. The export dynamic is currently coming from the EU, from the EU-28 countries."
    • The Dax index does have exposure to China and would be the first of Western Europe's markets to hit bear-market territory if it closes where it's at now: currently -6.6%, down 672 points to 9,453. It's off 24% from its peak.
    • ETFs: EWG -2.5%, GF -8.2%, DAX -6.8%, DXGE -6%, HEWG -15.7%, DBGR -5.3%, EWGS -2.5%, BUNT -2.6%, GGOV -1.3%, FGM -3.8%, QDEU -3.7%.

    • Global bond yields are on the rise after Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart said it would take "significant deterioration" in the U.S. economy for him to not support a rate hike in September.
    • Lockhart's opinion is especially notable as he's considered a centrist on the FOMC whose views typically mirror the consensus.
    • Tracking similar movement in U.S. treasuries, German 10-year yields +3 bps to 0.66%, rebounding from a two-month low hit on Tuesday.
    • The dollar index is also getting a boost, up 0.2% to 98.23 - its highest since April 23.

    • So where are bonds going following the referendum? Investors are still selling off riskier assets, although the declines are muted compared with a week ago on increased hopes for a deal with Varoufakis gone.
    • As expected, money is flowing into the U.S. and Germany's fixed-income markets, and out of Spain, Italy, Portugal and Greece.
    • 10-year bond yields: U.S. -0.8% to 2.3%; Germany -6 bps to 0.73%; Spain +10 bps to 2.31%; Italy +10 bps to 2.34%; Portugal +11 bps to 3.02%; Greece +48 to 14.82%.

    • Greek banks and its stock market are closed today, with a payment due the IMF tomorrow likely to be missed. A referendum set for next Sunday is likely to determine the country's fate. A sizable "yes" vote would likely lead to the fall of the current government, allowing a new unity government to cut a deal with the troika. A "no" vote or even a close vote likely means Grexit.
    • Europe's down more than 3% and U.S. index futures are lower by more than 1%.
    • The U.S. 10-year yield is down 13 basis points to 2.34% and the German 10-year Bund yield is off 15 bps o 0.78%. The Italian 10-year yield is up 17 bps to 2.32% and the Spanish 10-year is up 16 bps to 2.27%.
    • TLT +2%, TBT -4%.

    • With a Greek default on the horizon, a divergence in the direction of bond yields is at work today, with money flowing into Germany's fixed-income market, and out of Spain, Italy, Portugal and Greece.
    • The turbulence is in contrast to last week, when benchmark German bunds fell and Spanish securities advanced amid optimism a deal would be reached.
    • 10-year bond yields: Germany -18 bps to 0.74%; Spain +24 bps to 2.34%; Italy +24 bps to 2.39%; Portugal +30 bps to 2.99%.
    • The yield on Greek 10-year securities jumped the highest since December 2012, shooting up 379 basis points to 14.63%.

    • While no deal has been reached, the Greek government's latest proposal makes major concessions on cutting deficits in the country's pension system - a long-standing demand of Greece's creditors.
    • According to the Greeks, the pension savings should amount to 0.4% of GDP this year and 1% starting in 2016 - pretty close to the target demanded by the IMF, ECB, and EU governments. Pencil pushers in Brussels will spend the next few days going through the numbers ahead of an emergency summit late this week.
    • Peripheral bond yields are headed south, while Germany's 10-year Bund yield is up ten basis points to 0.86%.
    • The Stoxx 50 (NYSEARCA:FEZ+2.6%, with Germany (NYSEARCA:EWGup 2.7%, France (NYSEARCA:EWQ+2.6%, Spain (EWQ+2.5%, Italy (NYSEARCA:EWI+1.7%, the U.K. (NYSEARCA:EWU+1%. Greece is higher by 5.7%.

    • Treasuries and German bund yields are headed lower after the Federal Reserve cut its outlook for interest rates and warned of spillover if Greece talks fail.
    • At yesterday's meeting, the Fed suggested it might raise rates only once in 2015 by a quarter percentage point, rather than twice as many officials previously anticipated.
    • Both ten-year U.S. and German Bund yields are down 4 bps, to 2.27% and 0.77%, respectively.

    • The three-day sell-off in Southern European sovereign bonds has renewed a bid for safe-haven German Bunds, as Greece's central bank warned of a "uncontrollable crisis" should Athens and its international creditors fail to reach a deal.
    • Spanish, Italian and Portuguese yields have risen to multi-month highs this week in one of the most serious episodes of euro debt contagion since the height of the debt crisis.
    • Their 10-year yields are now 4-6 bps higher at 2.37%, 2.35% and 3.24%, respectively.

    • A divergence in the direction of bond yields is at work again today, with money flowing into the fixed-income markets of the U.S. and Germany, and out of Spain, Italy, Portugal and Greece.
    • The move comes as discussions over the weekend between Greece and its creditors last only a few minutes before collapsing.
    • 10-year yields in Spain and Italy are each higher by ten basis points, while 10-year yields in the U.S.and Germany both slip a few. At 2.32% and 2.37%, respectively, yields in Italy and Spain are about equal to the 2.36% in the U.S. They had been significantly lower than than of the U.S. for a number of months.
    • Spain's IBEX 35 (NYSEARCA:EWP) is down 1.4% and Italy's FTSE MIB (NYSEARCA:EWI) is off 1.9%.
