A couple of light releases on the day

But it may not be enough to see Europe escape from the summer doldrums.

FX is keeping more subdued once again after some softening in the pound yesterday, with the aussie and kiwi also retracing gains from Wednesday. The rest of the major currencies bloc was more subdued and the mood continues today.

The dollar remains steady for the most part, with 10-year Treasury yields sitting thereabouts at 1.35% ahead of European morning trade. US futures are flattish, keeping rather muted after the Dow and S&P 500 clinched record highs again on the week.

It's all about working through sentiment in the bond market and the dollar for now, as the focus begins to switch towards Jackson Hole later in the month.
