Forex & Commodities markets

The better than expected NFP numbers and US President Trump counter financial regulation decisions did not affect the FX markets much, the dollar weakened vs the JPY in a surprise move and all other pairs traded sideways. It remains to be seen if the relative dollar weakness will spill into this week trading action. There is no important news on the agenda Monday.
