The charts are showing little medium term change and further choppy trade is expected while we wait on the important data later in the week (ECB Meeting/US GDP) but the US$ does look mildly bid today, so selling rallies in the Euro/Aud/Nzd is preferred. US$Jpy and US$Chf both look pretty much rangebound and Cable is best left alone due to the political headlines around Brexit that are driving the direction.
US Stocks still look heavy in the medium term and I suspect are a sell-on-rally scenario, while Gold seems to be losing some of its recent upside momentum and that will continue if the US$ remains firm..
