WORLD HEADLINES - Asian stocks had reversed earlier losses helped by a 1.3 percent late spurt from Shanghai, though Europe moved back into the red as gains for Italian and Spanish bank shares faded and the major bourses faltered as the dollar shifted up through the gears again. STOCKS - U.S. stock futures traded weaker on the first day of trade after the long weekend. BONDS - Expectations that the Federal Reserve will raise U.S. interest rates again this month pushed the yield on benchmark 10-year Treasury notes to 2.8640 percent. COMMODITIES - Gold was slightly lower as the dollar strengthened while silver, palladium and industrial metals such as copper and nickel saw more than 1 percent falls. CURRENCIES - It was all about the dollar and submerging emerging markets again as the prospect of higher U.S. interest rates compounded long-running global trade jitters. ECONOMIC DATA - GBP Inflation Report Hearings due at 8:15, ISM Manufacturing PMI at 10:00 ET.
