Morning Report: 07.00 London
This morning, there is still a mixed reaction to yesterday’s FOMC meeting where the Fed raised rates by 0.25% as expected, but kept additional guidance mostly the same as last month.
Most dollar pairs including the EUR/USD slipped yesterday, but there is a hint of a recovery this morning. The biggest win for the dollar came against the Canadian dollar, with the USD/CAD jumping to test 1.3050.
The AUD/USD has been out-performing however, with the pair holding at the 0.7200, building on Chinese strength.
A big exception is the GBP/USD, which is experiencing follow on selling after failing to break 1.3200 yesterday. The EUR/GBP broke lost ground yesterday, in favour of the pound, but those losses have been overcome with buying pressure so far this morning.
The USD/JPY slipped from the highs yesterday after failing to break the 113.00 level. The EUR/JPY also struggled to break resistance at 133.00. The GBP/JPY is experiencing follow on selling as the yen takes control.
