The euro got an early lift from the MOU leak, perking up to 1.2984 but it sagged back down to 1.2940 as risk appetite fizzled. The US session was entirely within earlier European trading.

Cable rallied after Cameron hinted at 'good news' tomorrow, when GDP numbers will be released. Bids ahead of 1.6050 have stalled the rally so far.

The 'less imminent' comment from Carney boosted USD/CAD to 0.9957, wiping out most of yesterday's losses.

The FOMC decisions was a non-factor. A few pairs chopped 10-15 pips but overall movement was miniscule and fleeting.
