It was a tedious session as markets are balancing out having to digest the Fed decision yesterday while preparing for the ECB decision to come later.
On the balance of things, we are still seeing some degree of risk aversion with equities keeping lower and bond yields in general staying subdued after yesterday’s fall. The dollar held weaker early on but found some footing in European morning trade, and is now only marginally lower after having pared gains earlier.
EUR/USD is up 0.1% to 1.1070 but saw a bit of a swing around 1.1040 to 1.1080 during the day while USD/JPY is down 0.2% to 134.35 though it was up around 134.65 earlier in the session.
The kiwi is leading the way with NZD/USD up 0.7% to 0.6270 though it is running close to its 100-day moving average at 0.6277 currently.
As we move towards the end of the week, all eyes are now on the ECB and then we’ll have to see how US regional banks fare as the dust settles following the Fed.
