Markets turned red again today as Japan got whacked down 1.94% in overnight trading.
Shanghai was up 0.60%, but Hong Kong fell 1.25%.
Emerging markets are getting crushed and Japanese futures are falling more.
In Europe, things were also down across the board. France's CAC 40 is trading down 1.4% while England's FTSE and Germany's DAX are both down as well.
Once again, the Australian dollar is getting hammered.
All of this comes a day after a very wild day in the markets. China's flash PMI missed expectations, sending Asian markets into a tizzy. And the currency markets were also nuts yesterday, with the Argentinian peso falling 13% against the dollar.
U.S. futures were pointing to a much lower open.
It's been a relatively quiet week of economic data. No major releases today.
