FX Update: The dollar remained generally soft, though EUR-USD has consolidated below yesterday's three-day peak at 1.1279. The market bought into the 'encouraging progress' line from the Eurogroup on Monday, while the move has correlated with a renewed surge in Bund yields. USD-JPY has continued to oscillate around the 120.00 level, trading back below here after yesterday leaving a one-week high at 120.28. Sterling has outperformed notably since the election last Friday, given added fuel by above-forecast UK March industrial output data on Tuesday, which imply a modest upside revision to Q1 GDP. USD-CAD has fallen back and tested the 1.2000 level following the latest phase of U.S. dollar weakness and rise in oil prices.
