Quiet day favours further risk appetite

I have to score the ho-hum day in markets on Friday as a win for the bulls. I expected a further pullback in risk sentiment, especially with the soft Italian bond auction. My feeling is that this means EUR/USD is on its way to 1.44 and USD/CAD down to 0.9800.

I live blogged all day Friday at ForexLive so some expanded thoughts are there. My end-of-day comments are at Intermarket Strategy.
