During the Asian session, the market mood was positive with Asian indices traded mostly higher, higher in yields, and weaker in safe-havens.
In the FX markets, the positive risk tone has weighed on the USD with the DXY index almost flat for the week. Also, the safe-haven JPY and CHF remained pressured against their counterparts especially the antipodeans, which are benefitting from the risk-on tone and firmer commodity prices.
