The overall risk mood is holding up after a bit of a minor setback late last week amid Fed chair Powell's remarks on Friday here. Equities are taking things in stride though to start the new week as investors will be eyeing key earnings in the next few days.

US futures are still keeping light gains as well, with S&P 500 futures up 0.1%, Nasdaq futures up 0.2%, and Dow futures flattish for the time being.
