Forex: EUR/USD in 6-week lows around 1.3255/60

The bloc currency is attempting a rebound after hitting levels last seen in early January in the proximities of 1.3230/35
Overnight trading extended the bearishness triggered after the unexpected dovish tone from the FOMC minutes on Wednesday.

Next on tap would be a batch of preliminary manufacturing/services PMI readings in the euro zone, ahead of a 10-year bond auction in Spain.

As of writing, the cross is down 0.15% at 1.3262 facing the next support at 1.3143 (MA100d) followed by 1.2998 (low Jan.4).
On the flip side, a breakout of 1.3450 (MA21d) would expose 1.3456 (high Feb.14).

Forex: GBP/USD pounded below 1.5200

GBP/USD is literally being pounded at this moment at 1.5155, off fresh 2.5-year lows at 1.5129, down -0.58% for the Asian session alone, -2.2% for the week, and -6.77% for the new year. Pound is by far the weakest major currency among all for current week, falling 7 out of the last 9 days. Volatility is back on track, as it averages 120+ pips for last 14 daily ranges, bouncing from 10 year record lows back in late Nov.
