Technical Analysis

The USD is mostly higher but little changed

As the North American session begins (with Canada employment on tap at the bottom of the hour), the JPY is the strongest of the majors, the AUD is the weakest. The USD is mostly higher but little changed. The CAD ahead of their June employment reports (+700K of net change in employment estimate) is mostly lower but little changed.  The JPY is marching lower, as are the JPY crosses, but coming off lows for the day.  US stocks are lower. Yields are lower. Gold is marginally higher.  Oil is lower.  All are modest risk-off flows. 

The USD is mostly higher but little changed
The ranges and changes are showing modest price action. The EURUSD, USDCAD, NZDUSD are all within 9 pips of being unchanged on the day.
