Today’s Trades 11.14.2017 – USDJPY, GBPCHF, CADCHF

*Good morning/afternoon everyone!*

The euro is trading sharply higher this morning against all of the major currencies on the back of a stronger than expected German GDP growth. ECB President Draghi didnt say anything damaging to the currency, allowing EUR/USD to take out 1.17 easily. While we are super bullish euros the move has taken EUR/USD to the 100-day SMA and the pair is struggling to extend its gains beyond that level. By the same token, sterling is underperforming because of soft CPI numbers but EUR/GBP is also at the 100-day SMA, which is a natural place of resistance. The U.S. dollar is taking a backseat today but 10 year yields are back below 2.4% and that is weighing on the currency. This morning’s US PPI report isn’t expected to have a significant impact on the currency. The Canadian and Australian dollars appear poised for a recovery while the New Zealand dollar extended its losses for a 4th consecutive trading day.
