Session Recap: USD loses some strength

Riskier currencies are recovering some ground against the Greenback following an initial period of consolidation on lows. The GBP/USD has broken above its perfect range between 1.5010 and 1.5040 to jumps above the 1.5100 area. The AUD/USD bounced from 8-month lows at 1.0115 to test the 1.0200 frontier and the USD/CAD returned to the bottom of its range at 1.0275.

The EUR/USD is different, the pair seems pegged to 1.3000 with the pair trading in range between 1.2985 and 1.3030. Italy's political uncertainty persists and the Eurogroup has started its two days of meeting. The major themes are financial aid package for Cyprus and maturity extensions for Ireland and Portugal.
