Headlines were still scarce during the session as the market advanced with a sense of caution that day.

Risk tones were significantly warmer earlier but turned slightly more negative in the past hour as US futures are in the red and we are seeing a collapse in commodity currencies. This could be because Treasury yields edged up, with 10-year yields as high as 1.738%, which could push tech stocks down again.

The European indices are down slightly, catching up with the drop on Wall Street yesterday.

In the forex market, the yen was one of the earliest winners in Asian trade and it also stayed the course in Europe. USD / JPY hovered around 113.65-80, remaining below 114.00 during the session.

The dollar is more mixed, trading lower at first, but as risk sentiment seems uncertain, it is gaining ground. USD / CAD fell as low as 1.2470 before rising to 1.2510. Meanwhile, the AUD / USD has fallen from 0.7290 to 0.7250 currently. Even the EUR / USD has seen its early gains evaporate from 1.1480 to 1.1445 so far.

It’s all about the mood for risk to wrap up the week with a set of US retail sales data to offer the markets something to chew on before the weekend.
