Very quiet in Asia with China and Australia closed
- USD/JPY has looked like the pair most likely to move with heavy stops touted below 96.50 but the bids between 96.70/90 are reportedly very solid indeed;
- The NZ FinMin took advantage of the quiet markets to try and talk down the NZD, saying that it’s “still too high”;
- Markets still expect some sort of a resolution out of Washington in coming days, hence the lack of panic and nobody seriously contemplating a default;
- Not much of note on the European economic calendar.
