Fed Chair Powell said there will likely be some impacts on the US from the virus but said it's too early to judge if they will be persistent or material.

The stock market continued to vote otherwise with the S&P 500 hitting a record before paring its gain to finish the day 6 points higher. Treasury yields rose 3 basis points across the curve and the modest strength in AUD also pointed to better sentiment.

The euro touched a new low for the year but support at the September low of 1.0879 has held for far. If the strength in the US dollar continues, that's a major pivot point to watch because there is little technical support below until the 2017 lows near 1.04.
