The USD is mixed
The snapshot of the strongest to weakest ahead of the US jobs report is showing the NZD is the strongest, the CAD is the weakest. The USD is right in the middle with nearly equal gains vs losses vs the major indices. The USD is highest vs the CAD (at +0.14%) and weakest vs the NZD at -(0.14%). It seems appropriate to be right in the middle with no bias ahead of the key report with holiday staffs.
The ranges and changes are very modest with low to high trading ranges for the major pairs vs the USD of 37 pips and less (down to 17 pips).
