ForexLive European FX morning news wrap: Dollar lightly lower as markets slowly unwind


Headlines:

Markets:

  • AUD leads, CAD lags on the day
  • European equities little changed; S&P 500 futures down 0.1%
  • US 10-year yields down 2.3 bps to 3.641%
  • Gold flat at $1,814.63
  • WTI crude up 1.8% to $79.68

Markets are slowly winding down to the holiday period, with meaningful headlines few and far between. Bonds moved higher on the day, owing to a drop in 10-year JGB yields after having run up against the 0.50% mark set out by the BOJ yesterday.

Equities are looking more tepid now after a decent start, with US futures nudging a touch lower while European indices have also pared early gains to keep more flattish at the moment.

In the FX space, the dollar is just a smidge lower with losses more evident against the yen and aussie. USD/JPY is seen trading 0.3% lower to 132.10 as the plunge from Tuesday begins to consolidate. Meanwhile, AUD/USD is up 0.4%. to 0.6735 as the pair keeps a bounce off its 100-day moving average from around 0.6658 earlier in the week.

EUR/USD is up 0.2% to 1.0625 as buyers look to build on a shallow upside break while other major currencies are mostly little changed against the dollar.
