USD is mixed/stronger
The GBP is the strongest, while the NZD is the weakest. The USD is mixed but tilted to the stronger side. Fed's George expressed her desire to keep rates unchanged. The EUR had an up and down session after better PMI data led to a spike in the EURUSD, but then a fall back down to new week lows at 1.1062. We are back near unchanged on the day.
The ranges and changes are showing the GBP pairs leading the way. The EUR pairs were also more volatile with price action up and down (trading near the middle of the ranges for the EUR pairs).
