The weekend is over and stocks are mixed. Most global stock markets opened lower on leftover selling from Friday but have stabilized. Japan's Nikkei, which suffered and 8% loss Friday, has been trading higher most of the night. U.S. stocks are looking at losses.

Other analysts say Friday's sell-off was a knee jerk reaction that was overdone. Oil prices are edging higher but volatility is likely to remain over the near term, as the British pound fell further and sent the U.S. dollar soaring.
