JPY and AUD are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.21% and 0.21% vs the dollar while GBP and NOK are the top losers, down -0.24% and -0.13% vs the dollar.
The EUR dipped versus the dollar as the U.S. Dollar was boosted by a rise in yields caused by talks of a German stimulus package. Political uncertainty in Italy also weighed on the Euro: there is a no-confidence vote against the ruling coalition in Italy today. That said the market will focus on the Fed Chair Jerome Powell speech at the Jackson Hole symposium on Friday before any sharp moves.
