FOREX: The dollar had a tough day, despite the release of better than expected
US Data and talk of the Fed chair appointment. Sterling had a solid day after
the release of strong UK growth in Q3. 
The earlier release of weaker-than-expected Australian Q3 CPI managed to keep
the Aussie under pressure for the majority of the session, printing fresh
intraday lows of $0.7690.
Dollar-yen started the NY session in a buoyant tone, printing session highs of
Y114.24. Despite the release of strong US Data, the dollar lost ground in the
afternoon session, as US Tsys yields fell, along with the Dow. The rate dropped
to fresh intraday lows of Y113.48, as US Tsys yields lost ground, a sharp spike
in XAU and USD/MEX falling in reaction to Banxico announcing an increase in FX
Euro/dollar followed the market for the majority of the session printing session
highs of $1.1817, with traders turning there focus on
the release of tomorrow's ECB.
