The G10 FX continue to trade narrow ranges in another relatively subdued session. EUR and GBP found a modicum of support against the USD in Europe as the downside held in both currencies following Tuesday's sell-off.

FX trade was sluggish again in N.Y. on Tuesday, though on net, the dollar was a touch firmer. The data calendar caused few upsets, as house prices rose, consumer confidence was a touch lower than forecasts, and the Richmond Fed index slipped.
