Today’s Trades 10.25.2017 – NZDUSD, EURUSD, GBPJPY

*Good morning/afternoon everyone!*

Its another mixed day for the U.S. dollar, which is trading lower against European currencies and higher versus the Japanese Yen and comm dollars. AUD and NZD are singing to their own tunes with weaker data and political troubles hampering their gains. CAD on the other hand remains weak ahead of the Bank of Canada’s monetary policy announcement with USD/CAD breaking above 1.2700. GBP is benefitting from stronger than expected Q3 GDP and the EURO is holding bid ahead of Thursday’s European Central Bank monetary policy announcement. We’re finally beginning to see some big moves in the FX markets with many EUR and GBP crosses hitting multiyear highs driven by the divergence between the economic and monetary policy outlooks for Europe vs. Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Looking ahead we expect these divergences to continue.

We’ll be live trading Bank of Canada’s rate decision with everyone beginning at 9:45 AM NY / 13:45 GMT. Usual daily webinar link.
