Dollar is trading generally higher together with Japanese Yen in Asian markets today. Sterling is also firm after UK Prime Minister Theresa May narrowly won the confidence vote in Commons. Commodity currencies are the weaker ones. But fresh selling is seen in Euro and Swiss Franc entering into European session. We won’t be surprised to see Euro and Swissy overtake Aussie and Kiwi as weakest later in the day. Over the week, Sterling remains the strongest one. It’s followed by Dollar and then Canadian. New Zealand and Australian Dollars are the weakest.
