WORLD HEADLINES - The euro fell on Friday to its lowest in nearly two weeks while Italy’s bond yields hit their highest in three after the government agreed to set a higher than expected budget deficit target that could put Rome on a collision course with Brussels. STOCKS - European shares opened lower, with shares in Italian banks - whose big sovereign bond portfolios make them sensitive to political risk - bearing the brunt of selling pressure. US stock futures also traded lower from risk-off sentiment flows. BONDS - Treasuries strengthened as risk-off sentiment dominated the overnight markets. COMMODITIES - Oil prices steadied on Friday as U.S. sanctions on Tehran squeezed Iranian crude exports, tightening supply even as other key exporters increased production. CURRENCIES - The euro fell to an 11-day low of $1.1615 after suffering its worst one-day decline in seven weeks on Thursday. ECONOMIC DATA - US Personal Spending m/m and CAD GDP due at 8:30, Chicago PMI at 9:45 and Revised UoM Consumer Sentiment at 10:00 ET.
