The euro and the sterling strengthened, with EUR/USD reaching a fresh 6-week high of 1.3728 supported by solid Chinese data. The GBP/USD however, failed to break above the .6390/1.6400 resistance area and entered in a consolidative stage. The USD/JPY was little changed just above 103.00.

The Aussie and the Kiwi are among the worst performers despite Chinese data with the AUD/USD sliding below 0.9100 and the NZD/USD falling beneath 0.8300.

The calendar remains pretty light for the rest of the day, with BoE Governor Carney and some Fed members due to speak.
