The euro rebounded above 1.32 at the outset of US trading and quietly circled around 1.3220 afterwards. The fiscal cliff headlines were seemingly a stocks-only story, although the commodity currencies bounced around.

The New Zealand dollar gapped 40 pips lower at one point but bounced right back.

The pound was strangely bid throughout trading, assuredly flow related.

Have a great weekend.
