Еще should be limited by the generally calm rate movement Pound/Dollar took a slide from the high of 1 2190, but a late rise cancelled out some of the loss. Traded volume is low and sentiment of the traders is neutral, but short positions are in the lead by 14%. Decline makes a successful morning session more likely for those who were short. Dollar/Yen has had a slow day – high and low difference is just 36 pips and traded volume is low. Most of the traders have been forecasting the rate to head South, but both the passive trading and flat rate movement should limit changes in trading accounts. Pound/Yen dropped after 7 o’clock, but a following rise wiped out most of the loss. Traded volume is extremely low and most of the traders have been expecting the rate to head higher. Steep decline has brought risks, but they should be limited by the passive trading. Euro/Yen’s gradual uptrend puts the pair point 35% in the green at 12 o’clock. Turnover is low and most of the traders have been forecasting the rate to move lower. Gradual rise suggests losses are more likely, but they should be cushioned by the slow trading.
