Session Recap: USD mixed heading into the weekend

By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The European morning ends with the USD broadly unchanged against majors, with the main exception of the yen, which is outperforming.

The EUR/USD and the GBP/USD show a similar picture, trading flat on the day at 1.3610 and 1.7025 respectively, after peaking during the Asian session.

the USD/JPY fell to a 1-month low of 101.30 before stabilizing in a range. “Japan data out overnight suggests consumption is weathering the April tax hike, and supports the case for no near-term BOJ action”, says the BBH analyst team.

Stocks are broadly higher in Europe, although still on track for weekly losses, while US futures point to a negative open.

During the New York session, the Reuters/Michigan consumer confidence data would be the highlight.
