Commodity currencies lead as the yen, franc lag on the day

The market is starting European trading with a more positive mood as the push higher in equities is spurring more of a risk-on trade in FX, as commodity currencies pull slightly ahead on the day now.

Elsewhere, USD/CAD is trading back under 1.2600 now. The dollar is seen middling as it holds a slight advance against the likes of the yen and franc.
