Session Recap: Majors little changed as cautious tone prevails

By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - Majors are broadly unchanged Monday, trading in narrow ranges in the absence of data to impact markets.

It seems investors remain mostly sidelined amid persistent geopolitical woes, leaving most pairs in the FX market within recent ranges.

The EUR/USD trades flat at 1.3525 after being rejected from a high of 1.3549, while the GBP/USD trades around 1.7085 after failing to regain the 1.7100 mark. The USD/JPY is back to 101.30 after bouncing from a low of 101.19.

The AUD and the CAD are a tad lower while European stocks extended losses into a third day and gold advanced on risk aversion. US futures were also lower.
