FX: mostly drift ahead of NFP: By Mary McNamara

It looks like it has been a good week to be away.  There have been few decent trends and mostly drift ahead of Friday’s NFP. The two exceptions being the cross pairs of the AUD/NZD and GBP/AUD but the EUR/NZD might be worth watching here too.

NB: this is just a brief update as I am traveling and on holidays until the end of October. Currently in Boston, US. First time here and can’t believe how absolutely beautiful the place is!

USDX daily: revised trend lines but the theme is the same. Watch for any decent break away from the weekly 200 EMA zone:

EURX weekly: this is still shaping up within a Bull Flag for now:
