GBP: Sterling crosses are showing few changes. Cable is retracing a bit, but it is still above the 1.5600 area; while GBP-JPY is still trading above 124. EUR-GBP is consolidating at the 0.8000 support zone.
CHF: The Swiss franc is behaving the same as the rest of the European crosses, with USD-CHF now moving above 0.9600. EUR-CHF is stuck in the familiar range close to 1.20 that the SNB is determined to defend.
USD: The greenback is showing an upward bias due to European concerns. After yesterday’s weak consumer confidence numbers, today the market will pay close attention to durable goods orders as well as pending home sales. The USD-JPY is moving close to the 79.50 level.
CAD, AUD & NZD: The "three dollar" crosses are showing little weakness against the USD and the JPY. AUD-USD is still trading above the parity zone. Meanwhile, USD-CAD is trying to break the 1.03 resistance level.
