GBPUSD: Greece’s Collateral Damage

Updated -  May 18, 2015 4:27:48 PM


The second half of North American trade was even more celebratory than the first for US equity markets as well as the USD, both of which maintained and even accelerated early gains.  The EUR/USD broke through 1.13, the USD/JPY pushed up against 120, the Dow and S&P finished comfortably in the green, and the commodity currencies looked disheveled throughout.  All of this early USD love to start the week is a stark contrast to what  [...] Continue Reading
