Today’s Trading Plan 08.17.2017 – EURUSD, AUDUSD, AUDJPY

*Good morning/afternoon everyone!*

Outside of the sharp sell-off in the euro, there’s been very little action in the FX market overnight. The U.S. dollar is steadying after sharp losses yesterday and for the time being holds 110 versus the Yen. Yet the Yen’s losses are limited to the greenback as Japan’s larger than expected trade surplus sent the currency higher vs. EUR, GBP, AUD and other majors. Last night’s Australian labor market numbers were mixed. Stronger net job growth and a lower unemployment rate was offset by fewer full time jobs. AUD initially traded higher after the report but the rally fizzled. GBP also shook off better than expected retail sales data as the previous number was revised lower.
