EUR/USD is trading above 1.17, holding its gains despite upbeat US data. The CB Consumer Confidence jumped to 101.8 points, beating estimates. Fed speakers are awaited and the presidential debate is eyed.
USD/JPY was seen consolidating its recent gains to three-week tops, above mid-105.00s. The set-up favours bullish traders and supports prospects for further appreciating move. Only a sustained break below the 105.00 round-figure will negate the constructive outlook.
Gold built on the previous day's goodish bounce from 100-day SMA and edged higher through the first half of the trading action on Tuesday. The overnight sustained move beyond 100-hour SMA was seen as a key trigger for bullish traders and pushed the commodity to multi-day tops.
