World stocks steadied Tuesday after three sessions of losses thanks to strong earnings from the likes of Google and as a rise in benchmark U.S. bond yields toward 3 percent stalled, while oil prices further stretched to fresh highs above $75 a barrel. U.S. stock futures pointed to a firm open on Wall Street, although European shares were mixed with stock markets in London and Frankfurt around 0.3 percent higher and shares in Paris flat.In Asia, Japan's Nikkei added 0.9 percent as a lower yen supported export-heavy firms and Chinese shares posted their strongest gains in two months.U.S. 10-year Treasury yields came within striking distance of the psychologically significant barrier of 3 percent Monday, which in the past has triggered market spasms.The fallout from rising U.S. bond yields, which have helped lift U.S. financial stocks, continued to be felt in currency markets.
