Currencies action last Friday


The recent reports of weak economic data provided another rumor of an imminent China reserve ratio (RRR) cut which helped to halt the recent risk aversion flows.

Sovereign names were cited to be USD sellers as the session began Friday. The USD was softer against the major pairs as a result and hitting multi-week lows against the EUR and CHF pairs.

But, note that the typical window for the Peoples Bank of China action passed and the European equity markets drifted off earlier highs and into negative territory.

The USD was off its worst levels as the NY morning session opened. The EUR-USD hovered around the 1.3260 level.

USD-JPY found support on Japanese importer demand.
