Daily Forex Preview – 23/12

Lack of fundamentals yesterday saw the markets trading off broad themes with no major market moving events. The USD continues to be strong against most of its peers with the EURUSD making a fresh yearly low of 1.2215, while USDJPY managed to break above previous highs to end the day at 120.087.
