Major currencies are <0.1% changed against the dollar so far today

EOD 28-10

The pound is arguably the only active mover as cable rose to a high of 1.2859 earlier in the session before settling back to near flat levels currently around 1.2820-30 levels.

Other major currencies are holding in narrow ranges against the dollar with little conviction to break stride so far today.

The risk mood is a bit mixed overall with European equities looking indecisive but bond yields are marked higher amid the fact that a Brexit extension was granted, with the move higher coming after France moved on their stance from last week.
