  • USD

    The US dollar is up slightly, trading around its strongest levels seen since December 11th. Early in the week, G10 currency volatility slid to its lowest levels since August 2014.


    Sterling is on track to reverse its five day losing streak, but is only up about 0.1%. On Monday, GBPUSD touched its lowest level in nearly a month.


    EURUSD remains range-bound trading within the $1.10 handle. The currency pair has found support at the December 20th low of 1.1066.


    USDCAD is trading higher near 1.3160, the Canadian dollar trading weaker than more of its peers. There are no major data releases from Canada through the end of the year leaving the currency vulnerable to broader market trends.


    Bank of Japan meeting minutes for October showed that most board members viewed downside risks to overseas economies as a significant factor. USDJPY remains largely unchanged, trading around 109.40.
