The EUR/USD was rejected from a high of 1.3576 and slid to the 1.3515 zone during the European session amid Weidmann comments. The GBP/USD rose to a fresh 3-week peak of 1.6161 after BoE minutes showed the MPC voted unanimously to keep policy unchanged. The USD/JPY dropped back below 100.00 and slipped to the 99.80 zone. Meanwhile, the AUD/USD failed to hold above 0.9400 and retraced some of yesterday's gains.

During the New York session watch for US retail sales, CPI, existing home sales, business inventories and of course the FOMC minutes due at 19:00GMT.
