USD: The US Dollar has begun the week on the backfoot, losing ground against its major counterparts, with the exception of the Canadian Dollar. Losses in the greenback had been exacerbated by the large miss in the NY Fed Manufacturing Index, which dropped to 10.9, below the expected 20. Elsewhere, newsflow is relatively quiet as markets await the central bank bonanza (Fed, BoE, BoJ, Riksbank).

EUR: While the pullback in the Dollar has largely supported the Euro this morning, the currency has yet again met support at the 1.13 handle. Softer Eurozone inflation with the yearly rate dropping to 1.9% from 2%, failed to derail the firmer Euro.
