Another steady session that has seen the euro continue its recent slide post-ECB meeting the US dollar generally in demand.

The EURGBP supply down to 0.8792 initially helped support GBPUSD but we've now seen lows of 1.3124 with option expiries at 1.3150 in play.

USDJPY made short work of climbing back up through 114.00 and made steady gains before once again running out of puff at 114.35 while USDCHF also began on the front foot but failed at 1.0020 and returned to 0.9990.

USDCAD has posted steady gains from 1.2710 to 1.2765 on a combo of initial firmer USD then oil prices turning a little lower.
