Economic data coming up in the European session

Author: Justin Low | Category: News

Little on the agenda to start the new week



The market is off to a more sluggish start to the new week with the dollar and yen holding slight gains, as US futures keep lower in Asia Pacific trading.

After the record highs for the S&P 500 and Dow last week, price is seeing a slight pullback around 0.3% as we look towards European morning trade today.

EUR/USD continues to hold close to 1.1900 and lingering around its 200-day moving average at 1.1889 for the moment.

USD/JPY was bolstered by higher yields on Friday but keeps below its 100-hour moving average @ 109.70 at around 109.50-60 levels currently. Treasury yields are little changed today, keeping a touch lower with 10-year yields seen down 0.5 bps to 1.653%.

Elsewhere, gold stays on retreat as it backs away from resistance near $1,755 while Bitcoin is pushing back up above $60,000 again after the weekend move.

It is still all about risk sentiment and yields before we get to US CPI data tomorrow.
