There, that should get things rolling. Yer right.

EUR/USD sits at 1.4342, a whole 12 points firmer than when I arrived a little under 8 hours ago.

Talk of stops gathered just below 1.4300. Talk of sell orders up at 1.4370. Talk of 1.4350 option expiry at todays New York cut. Talk that i’ll be headed out the door in about five minutes.

European stocks look a little sorry for themselves, FTSE 100 off just over half a percentage point, DAX 30 off around three quarters of a point.

To think I have to go through this all again tomorrow. Deep joy. Roll on next week.
