Good morning, afternoon or evening & welcome to Monday morning. The airstrike response on Syria has not moved forex markets much at all as we get early moves for the week.

  • EUR/USD 1.2339

  • GBP/USD 1.4253
  • USD/CHF 0.9622
  • USD/CAD 1.2598
  • AUD/USD 0.7772 ... and as I post an update: 0.7767
  • NZD/USD 0.7361 ... update 0.7356

Monday morning market liquidity is very thin. Prices can swing around on not too much at all, so take care out there. Liquidity improves as more Asian centres come on online.

The US described the air strikes as 'limited' and a 'one-tem shot' - which, along with the passage of time over the weekend since the strikes, seems to be limiting market response, at least so far.
