The dollar is weaker across the board, extending losses from yesterday as we see EUR/USD move closer towards 1.1900 while USD/JPY is keeping a firm break under 105.00.
The greenback is largely struggling for reprieve as Treasury yields are sinking further as well, crushing real yields in the US. Asian equities may be struggling a little but US futures are keeping more calm after better earnings from key tech giants overnight.
I would argue that there are toppish signs in EUR/USD and GBP/USD – more so the former on stretched positioning – as we approach 1.2000 and 1.3200 in general, but a further breakdown in USD/JPY (dragging the dollar lower) is hard to ignore.

Regardless, today is all about month-end trading so flows will dominate for the most part. As such, keep an eye on the moves ahead and at the London fix later in the day.
