Risk is getting a nice shove higher to start European trading today with Treasury yields also hitting session highs across the curve now. 10-year yields are up by 4 bps to 1.568%.

That is starting to give USD/JPY a nudge towards the 109.00 handle as the market continues to see fears surrounding the coronavirus outbreak recede for the time being at least.
