DBS Bank 2/12: the major 0.5510 lows through last November’s 0.6991 lows. A bullish flag is being formed, which implies AUD retains its underlying bullish tone.

OCBC Bank 1/5: #EURUSD Downside risks averted? Choppy action left the $EURUSD still anchored on either side of the 1.2050 level. Buoyant early Tue, but the 1.2080/90 resistance still intact. Despite negative lead from

Rabobank 1/8: #CFTC #CommitmentofTraders Report:
Net #USD short positions were little changed last week though a modest increase was recorded. Net shorts remain near recent highs and are therefore not reflecting this year’s improved performance of the USD in the spot market.

#EUR net longs dropped back sharply. In spot market it appears that
