07:50 EDTN.Y. FX Outlook
N.Y. FX Outlook: The dollar firmed up overnight, moving back toward pre-FOMC minutes levels against major currencies. U.S. names were reportedly sellers of EUR-USD and USD-JPY out of the gates, which took the former to intra day lows of 1.1360, and the latter to 118.80 from near 119.10. The action was reportedly EUR-JPY related, with selling stepping in after the earlier failure of the cross to breach the 136.00 level. In addition, Greece's request for a loan extension has not been well received, especially by EU politicians, who largely view the request as a "bridge-loan", not in keeping with the previous bailout conditions. Elsewhere, USD-CAD is up testing the 1.2500 mark, as oil prices moved lower once again. The U.S. calendar is fairly busy, kicking off with weekly jobless claims at 8:30 EST. The February Philly Fed index is due at 10:00 EST, along with January leading indicators. Weekly EIA petroleum inventories are due at 11:00 EST.

07:10 EDTFX Update: The dollar recovered a chuck of yesterday's losses
FX Update: The dollar recovered a chuck of yesterday's losses that were seen after the FOMC minutes. Rumoured Swiss franc selling by the SNB in EUR-CHF apparently helped support USD-CHF, which in turn prompted EUR-USD lower after a double rejection from 1.1450. News that Greek has asked for a six-month loan agreement didn't have much impact, certainly not positively, as this, if agreed by the Eurogroup tomorrow, would only buy time rather than address bailout conditions. EUR-CHF posted a new high for the third consecutive day in making 1.0799 amid market rumours of the SNB's guiding hand. The peak today is the highest level seen since the SNB abandonment of the franc cap on Jan-15. USD-JPY recovered the 119 handle after making a two-day low at 118.43 in thin Asian trade, with Hong Kong, Singapore and China markets closed for the Lunar New Year. See summary

03:25 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY is trading lower
FX Action: USD-JPY is trading lower post-FOMC minutes, which wrong-footed markets with its dovish undertone. The pair is settled back in the mid-118s after closing yesterday in London at 119.14. A two-day low was logged at 118.43 in thin Tokyo trade (Hong Kong, Singapore and China were closed for Lunar New Year), and has since settled about 20-30 pips above here. A news report in the Sankei newspaper that the BoJ is considering delaying the timing of the 2% CPI target also gave the yen an underpinning. The report fits the tone of the central bank's post-meeting statement yesterday (that the economy is set to recover without additional stimulus), and Governor Kuroda's remarks (that there is no imminent need for more stimulus). Analysts still remain USD-JPY bullish in the bigger picture, however, as the Fed and BoJ should be sufficiently contrasting to the favour of the dollar.
