Economic data coming up in the European session

A couple of light releases on the day

The dollar is trading little changed for the most part as major currencies are still keeping in a narrower range going into European morning trade.Invest in yourself. See our forex education hub.

EUR/USD is sticky close to 1.1600, keeping within a 13 pips range so far today, so there isn’t much firm direction so far with US futures also looking more tepid for now.

The yen is a notable gainer though but it comes after a slight fall in trading yesterday, as USD/JPY is trading around 113.90 levels at the moment.

The aussie is also keeping a slight advance after the stronger-than-expected Q3 CPI data earlier and that has also seen AUD/NZD pick up in search of a fifth straight day of gains – inadvertently weighing on the kiwi.

Looking ahead, there are some light releases to follow in European morning trade but none of which should really offer much of a shakeup to the market landscape.

The inflation debate and risk sentiment are still two key factors at play for now before we focus in on the loonie ahead of the BOC policy meeting later in the day.
