Key Data Releases Today

1230GMT – USD NFIB Small Business Optimisim exp 95.6 v 95.3


USDJPY led strength saw the USD trade firmer overnight as Abe suggests suspension of Sales Tax. Having traded both sides of 114.65-115.00 in the early part of the Asian session, USDJPY finally took out the offers at 115.00 area, tripping stops above, to print fresh 2014 highs. AUDUSD rotated between 0.8615-0.8650 with good NAB data helping the push to the highs before general USD strength, supported by rising US yields, erased those gains. Finally, worth keeping an eye on EURCHF as it continues to trades close to the SNB floor. Having tested a two-year low yesterday of 1.2021 it was confined to a 1.2025-31 range overnight.

Looking ahead, we have a quiet session in store with North America out for Veterans Day. The highlight in Europe being Swedish CPI and the Riksbank minutes.

EUR struggles to regain range lows.
CAD profit taking pull back quickly finds support.
GBP rejected on range low recapture attempt.
JPY new 2014 lows as Abe suggests suspension of Sales tax.
AUD struggle to trade back into lower end of its range.
