Currency movements in Asia to open the week on Monday were fairly subdued, as they so often are.
EUR/JPY has been a notable gainer on the session at 30-40 odd points or so higher than where we left it on Friday. USD/JPY has gained as has EUR/USD, but again, the moves are subdued as as I update we are seeing some retracement.
USD/CHF and cable are little changed as is the AUD/USD. The New Zealand dollar is up maybe 30 points give or take, while gold has shone, up around 5 bucks.
The People's Bank of China strengthened the yuna at the mid point setting after 10 consecutive days of devaluation.
Regional equities as I update:
- Nikkei -0.37%

- HK +0.36%
