That said, it still has been a rough week overall for US stocks so this is but a bit-part reprieve.The bid in bonds is also being cast aside as sellers return, after four straight days of „absence“ this week. 2-year Treasury yields are up 6.4 bps to 2.586% while 10-year Treasury yields are up 9.1 bps to 2.907%.In FX, there isn’t too much change as the dollar is sitting more mixed but mostly just giving up some light ground after its unrelenting advance this week. USD/JPY is perhaps the notable mover as it is up 0.5% to 129.00, bouncing off a drop just below 128.00 yesterday.Elsewhere, commodity currencies are the ones benefiting the most amid the improved risk mood. USD/CAD is down 0.3% but finding it tough to break below 1.3000 amid large option expiries. Meanwhile, AUD/USD is up 0.5% to 0.6890 but it doesn’t really mean much when you consider the technical picture.
