    A negative EURUSD outlook, but GBPUSD is indecisive (with a downside bias)

    A restoration of a US$ Dollar strength from late November and into early December against many of the Major currencies.
    This has been driven by progress of US tax reform legislation and a broader “risk on” outlook on markets in to year-end.
    For EURUSD, we see a broader range environment, defined by 1.1553 and 1.2089, but with the asymmetrical bias to the downside.
    GBPUSD is also in a wider, non-trend range, seen as 1.3026 and 1,3658. Despite recent gains into Brexit negotiations and progress, more recent price action switches the immediate bias back to the downside.

    USDJPY and USDCAD aiming higher

    A renewal of a positive US$ Dollar tone into early December against most G10 currencies, with US tax reform legislation moving forward and with a general “risk on” trading environment resuming.
    The US Dollar rallied into the November US Employment data release at the start of December (on the 8th) and stayed resilient through the posting of this data.
    For both USDCAD and USDJPY this sets the bias for further upside challenges to resistance into mid-December and through the holiday season into year-end.
    USDCAD aims above the key peaks at 1.2909/15/17 towards 1.3347 and 1.3550.
    USDJPY targets the key 114.73 peak, possibly for 115.50/63 and maybe 118.65, the late 2016 cycle peak.

    FX Update: NZD rises on new RBNZ head, lame duck FOMC up Wednesday
    This week's economic calendar is chock-a-block with central bank meetings and CPI data, but the FOMC and ECB meetings on Wednesday and Thursday respectively may offer little in the way of surprise scenarios. Elsewhere, sterling is offered on aggravating wait for post-Brexit trade talks to begin, while the kiwi has surged on the appointment of a new RBNZ head.
