By: XE Market Analysis

News of the weekend were risk-off, which saw the USD and JPY rise against most other currencies in the Asia-Pacific session amid a backdrop of declining stock markets.

The dollar faltered broadly in N.Y. trade on Friday, mostly the result of end of week, month and quarter conditions. There was talk of USD selling from fund accounts cleaning up their books for the quarter, which resulted in EUR-USD over 1.3560, USD-JPY under 98.25, and cable back over 1.6100. Read more

Ranges were narrow among the FX majors. EUR-USD remained anchored around 1.3500, with the euro little impacted by solid Eurozone confidence, aside from a modest lift, while sterling spiked following remarks from BoE Governor Carney, who said that there was no case for further QE in an improving economy, though the currency's upward momentum evaporated pretty quickly.

Ranges were narrow among the FX majors since yesterday's London closing levels. The JPY posted modest across-the-board gains following news of the fastest acceleration in CPI inflation in nearly five years, a sign that re-inflationary policies are taking effect. Read more

The dollar firmed marginally in N.Y. trade on Thursday, as stocks advanced, and as Treasury yields edged up. Weekly jobless claims data were better than expected, and Q2 GDP was unrevised at 2.5%. FX dealings were fairly flat again, and major dollar pairings largely remained inside of well worn ranges. Read more

Ranges were pretty narrow for the most part, though GBP was a mover and shaker, taking a dip following an unexpected y/y revision lower in the final Q2 GDP estimate out of the U.K.. The report also showed unexpected weakness in business investment and a one-off boost to consumer spending that partly reflected the timing of deferred bonus payments to take advantage of a tax change.

The JPY saw some chop in and otherwise subdued session for the FX majors and the AUD and NZD currencies. USD-JPY and EUR-JPY initially dipped to respective one-week lows of 98.27 and 132.68 before rallying, with the yen making its usual inverse correlation to the direction of the Nikkei-225 stock index, which was boosted by news that Japan's ruling LDP will look to make a corporate tax cut amid its stimulus plans, and confirmation that PM Abe will detail new stimulus measures on Oct-1.

The dollar again meandered around inside of narrow trading bands in N.Y. dealings on Wednesday, and was mostly softer on the session. August durable orders were soft, while new home sales perked up some, both following weak outcomes in July. Equities and yields both moved lower, not helping the greenback at all. Read more

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. There were very few fresh leads, but intra-day accounts were guided by USD-JPY's brief move under 98.50, which reinforced a heavier tone. Read more

The G10 FX continue to trade narrow ranges in another relatively subdued session. The dollar was supported against EUR and GBP on position adjustment after most currencies retraced around half of the recent gains seen in the wake of last week's Fed policy decision. Read more
