A soggy session mostly for European equities so far 21 Feb

DAX down over 0.7% at one point to post lows of 12373 from 12469 with CAC down -0.3%, IBEX -0.8% and FTMIB -0.5%

FTSE100 avoiding the negative tones though as GBP weakens and therefore adds value to the mostly US-denominated listed companies.

USDJPY ran out of steam at 107.91 and fallen back to 107.45 on what has mostly been a USD-demand day so far but the risk-off yen buying notable helping to cap core pairs too.My preferred rally-sell strategy working again but equally you can buy the dips.

GBPJPY down to session lows of 149.42 from 150.30, EURJPY down to 132.30 from 133.00 with AUDJPY 84.38 capping an already option-impacted AUDUSD around 0.7860

FOMC Minutes the main focus at 19.00 GMT and also casting a shadow/helping to take some money off the table. BOE testimony to TSC at 14.15 GMT looming over GBP pairs.
