FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - For the first time in several weeks, majors and stocks moved in different ways. While stocks rose 175 points, approaching to the key 8000 points level, Euro fell close to 1.3500 and Gbp to the 1.4440 zone, and both currencies remain close to that level. Sharp gains on Wall Street were led by consumer shares along with the surge in oil and gold, and other base metals. The increase in risk appetite has also triggered gains in commodity currencies such as the Australian and New Zealand dollars, supported by signs of bank stability.
Currencies however could remain sensitive to risk appetite, particularly as traders are hesitant to make any significant bets ahead of the European Central Bank meeting and Group of 20 Summit next April 2nd.
