The more positive vibes reverberate to Europe in early trades

  • German DAX futures +0.6%
  • UK FTSE futures +0.2%
  • Spanish IBEX futures +0.5%

This mirrors the more optimistic tone in Asia earlier and in US futures, which are up by ~0.8% as we look to get things going on the session.

That is keeping the dollar and yen modestly lower for now, with EUR/USD and GBP/USD near session highs at 1.1960 and 1.3370 respectively.
