It is Friday. And another terrorist killing. Thoughts and prayers to all impacted once again.

The strongest currency into the data is the AUD and it's sister currency the NZD is the weakest. The USD is mixed with the greenback rising ag the JPY and NZD and falling modestly vs. the EUR, GBP, CHF, CAD and AUD.
The ranges are short of the month ranges for most of the currency pairs. Nothing sticks out too much. The EURUSD remains in the longer term range.
