EUR: The euro crosses lost momentum due to renewed risk aversion favouring the dollar and the yen. The EUR-USD hit the week’s low at 1.2525 after yesterday’s reversal at 1.2700. The EUR-JPY is holding above the 100 yen area.
GBP: Sterling crosses are moving hand in hand with the euro. Cable is retracing to the 1.5600 area while GBP-JPY is still trading above 125. EUR-GBP seems to be heading towards the 0.8020 support zone.
CHF: The Swiss franc is behaving the same as the rest of the European crosses. USD-CHF is now moving close but below 0.9600 after recent gains. The EUR-CHF is stuck in the familiar range close to 1.20.
Nordics: The NOK and the SEK have resumed their gains against the USD and the EUR. The USD-NOK may soon test the resistance which lies near 6.
USD: The greenback is showing strength across the board even if the Federal Reserve has embarked on a more accommodative monetary policy stance via an extension of its Operation Twist program. The USD-JPY is moving closer to the 80.55 resistance level.
CAD, AUD & NZD: The other three dollar crosses are showing weakness against the USD and the JPY. Meanwhile, USD-CAD is trying to break the 1.03 resistance level.
