The news was mostly positive in Europe as German industrial orders rebounded from a dreadful July and Schnabel kept the door open to rate hikes, though the later may have only served to reinforce that it will take a surprise to jar the ECB from the sidelines.

The euro was under some pressure early in Europe as the dollar strengthened broader but it's since turned around and is trading at the highs of the day. The pound also has some momentum in its third day of gains.

The yen is weaker though as global yields tick higher again. Perhaps the most-intriguing news is that President Biden scheduled an appearance to talk about the jobs report at 11:30 am ET. That's the kind of thing a President would do to take a victory lap after a good report.
