Risk sentiment picks up a little on the session

Stocks are leaning more positively to start the day and bond yields are also higher as we get into the thick of things in European morning trade. S&P 500 futures have advanced to be up 0.3% now after being down slightly by 0.1% at the start of the session.

In turn, that is seeing the dollar slip a little alongside the yen. EUR/USD has moved up from around 1.0200 to 1.0250 while GBP/USD has pulled higher from 1.1980 to 1.2045 and are trading at session highs at the moment.
