The Daily Edge Small Reversal In Risk Sentiment

It was largely an undecisive and choppy day in the markets on Thursday with both the US Dollar and the Japanese Yen retracement a tad the huge gains made over the last week. Meanwhile, the Canadian Dollar outperformed, followed by a solid run in the Euro and Pound. The Aussie and the Kiwi saw a small round of buying at last. 

The Daily Edge USD Strength Is The Story Of The Week

The story of the week is the strength in the US Dollar. This move is definitely very meaningful and carries behind the type of real-money commitment that has finally allowed some huge technical milestones.
