Today’s Trades 10.12.2017 – NZDUSD, NZDJPY, USDCAD

*Good morning/afternoon everyone!*

There is very little consistency in the performance of currencies this morning with the European currencies under pressure, the commodity currencies trading strongly and the U.S. dollar mixed as a result. Yesterday’s FOMC minutes were perceived as less hawkish but the odds of a December rate hike did not change, explaining the uneven demand for the greenback. Euro shrugged off stronger industrial production to find resistance below 1.19 as the enthusiasm for Spanish assets diminished. Sterling u-turned after hitting its August high during the Asia trading session. There’s little to explain the strength of AUD and NZD outside of short covering after strong downtrends.
