Good morning, afternoon, or evening depending on where you are on the globe

Welcome to the beginning of the new FX week, which will be somewhat curtailed by holidays in Japan (Monday), nearly everywhere on Thursday and many centres again on Friday.

But, as of right now, only the New Zealand market is open, and so market liquidity is super thin compared to most other times of the trading week. This is normally the case on a Monday morning, so nothing new, but I would caution extra care with many market players already having wound down for the holiday break.
