Dollar starts to see some light bids flow through
10-year yields are now back up to 1.54% from around 1.51% earlier and that is seeing the dollar start to gather some light supportive flows to start European trading.
EUR/USD is down to a low of 1.1590 while USD/JPY has pushed back up slightly above 112.00 and is contesting key resistance from the figure level now:
The 2020 high @ 112.23 also offers an additional layer of resistance but it will be tough to argue against further gains in the greenback as other dollar pairs are also showing signs of a further breakout.
GBP/USD has also pared its earlier gains in a fall from 1.3450 to 1.3416, with the pair continuing to dribble towards its lowest levels since December last year.
As mentioned earlier, while the dollar is a bit slow in getting off the bed today, best be reminded that it also got off to a slow start yesterday before things escalated going into North American trading and the dollar ended up as the big winner.
