Equities keep a more positive mood for now

  • Eurostoxx +0.1%
  • Germany DAX +0.5%
  • France CAC 40 +0.1%
  • UK FTSE +0.2%
  • Spain IBEX flat
  • Italy FTSE MIB +0.2%

US futures are also keeping firmer, so that is contributing to the more positive risk mood so far on the day. S&P 500 futures are up 0.3%, Nasdaq futures up 0.6%, and Dow futures are up 0.2% as we get things underway.

In FX, changes are relatively light across the board though with the aussie holding a slight edge while the yen is the notable laggard to start the session.

USD/JPY is trading near the highs as price is testing the 114.00 level currently.
