    Morning all!
    It's rather quiet here these days. For me the most interesting chart of today below. Not convinced yet that we will see a meaningful reversal any time soon.
    Good luck to all ;)

    Short usdcad at 1.2877 after the FOMC Minutes seemed a bit more dovish than expected IMO.

    I probably won't be able to post a very timely update due to my schedule.

    Despite the tumble on the ES in the last hour of the US session close, it was a pretty quiet day, looking at the last 25 occurrences with as little movement as yesterday, it maybe be contagious today.

    Continued-Part 3 USDJPY traders were unhappy with that currency pair ’s failure to crack above 110.00 earlier in Europe. It opened in just above support at 109.60 and continued down to 109.34, undermined by the CPI disappointment. Prices could not get above 109.60, and they closed at the day’s low.

    The commodity currency bloc rallied led by a 0.75% gain in AUDUSD. USDCAD continued to be undermined by high oil prices. NZDUSD gains on the back of broad US dollar weakness did not recoup all of its post-RBNZ statement weakness.

    Friday Focus: Canada is expected to add another 17, 400 jobs and keep the unemployment rate at the 40 year low of 5.8%. A higher than expected result, combined with high oil prices and short-term bearish US dollar sentiment could drive USDCAD to 1.2660.
