FXstreet.com (Buenos Aires) - Majors consolidate close to New York closing levels waiting for Nikkei opening, with the risk appetite momentum lose, as the central theme for this session. Despite Wall Street managed to close barely positive and gold holds above $ 1140/oz, close to record highs, EUR/USD was unable to regain the upside after falling close to 1.4800 from past Asian session high of 1.5000, and consolidates around 1.4860. Meanwhile GBP/USD remains strong after a higher than expected inflation reading early Europe, consolidating above 1.6800 level.

Regional stocks shares have no real cues coming from America, yet weaker than expected U.S. production data could push them lower, supporting further risk aversion spikes; still dollar is far from a trend change, as rate differential is another factor weighting against the greenback.
