ForexLive European FX news wrap: Dollar stays sluggish in quiet trading



  • CHF leads, USD lags on the day
  • European equities lower; S&P 500 futures up 0.1%

It was a quiet session for major currencies with the dollar keeping marginally lower on the day.

The euro and the franc gained slightly, with EUR/USD moving back up to retest the April high of 1.0885. But offers and large option expiries at 1.0900 is keeping a lid on things for now. Meanwhile, USD/CHF moved back down by 0.4% to test the 0.9100 mark.

Besides that, the aussie and kiwi are also just a touch higher but nothing to really shout about. AUD/USD is up 0.2% to 0.6667 as it continues to recoup losses from last week.

In the equities space, stocks were more optimistic early on with S&P 500 futures moving up by 0.3%. But as we look towards US trading now, we’re seeing those gains pared back to just 0.1%. In Europe, major indices also opened higher but are now trading lower as the risk optimism is tempered with slightly.

As for commodities, gold and silver are getting a bit of a check back following yesterday’s gains. It isn’t much but it speaks to some mixed flows on the day even with the dollar looking sluggish still.

US traders will be back from the long weekend and will have to contend with month-end flows before more key US data later in the week.
