It was a quiet session as markets are bracing themselves for the US jobs report coming up later.

The dollar continued to sag as yields look heavy and we'll have to see how traders will respond to that after the data later. USD/JPY remains a focus point as it trades in and around the 153.00 mark. Meanwhile, EUR/USD is up 0.2% to 1.0745 while GBP/USD is up 0.2% to 1.2559. AUD/USD is holding around 0.6580 as it looks to contest its 100-day moving average at said level.

In other markets, equities are looking optimistic but it's still early in the day as we'll have to wait and see what the data has to offer.

Elsewhere, gold is also down slightly just under $2,300 with bond yields still a little heavier after the drop yesterday.
