- London opened with a positive risk sentiment. News from a rise in global commodity prices certainly helped, with Aussie and Kiwi outperforming throughout the day. However, the session started with both EUROstoxx50 and Crude Oil drifting lower.
- At 9:30 AM GMT there was, perhaps, the most expected event of the day – UK Services PMI. Surprise, surprise, despite a negative deviation, Cable still managed to turn around and make new a high.
- The session’s biggest loser was – without a doubt – the USD, breaking through major levels against the Pound, Euro and Japanese Yen.
