The Japanese yen is higher in spite of news that Japanese core machinery orders fell in April for the first time in three months.

The Bank of Japan will hold its monetary policy meeting on Friday.
The commodity currencies, the Canadian dollar and the Australian dollar are higher in conjunction with firming crude oil prices.
