The GBP is the strongest, while the NZD is the weakest as NA traders enter for the day
The USD is mostly lower
After the weekend strikes on Syria, and trading in the Asian and European morning, the GBP is the strongest, while the NZD is the weakest. The USD is lower vs. all the major currencies with the exception of the NZD.
The NZDUSD has been up and down, but it did stay below the 100 hour MA (at 0.73633) on the Asian session high and that has given traders a reason to sell.
The USD is trading near the high vs the EUR and GBP at the NA opening. Those pairs are moving the most today too. The EURJPY and GBPJPY are also trading near the highs.
