    Most major Forex markets finished lower after a late session sell-off in the U.S. equity markets. Shortly after the mid-session in New York a strong surge in stock market sent shorts scrambling and helped break the U.S. Dollar to the low of the day, but losses were quickly erased when the stock market couldn’t hold on to gains after the bonds closed at 2:00 pm CDT.
    The EUR USD continued its march toward the June top at 1.4337 earlier in the day, but failed to hold on to gains into the close. There was no particular reason for the weakness other than demand for higher risk assets declined when equity markets reached an overbought level.
    The GBP USD sold off late in the session as another attempt to break out to the upside failed. This market appears to be trying to form a secondary lower top but has not attracted enough selling pressure yet to complete the move. A weak stock market tomorrow could put downside pressure on this pair. Traders may also start to shy away from the long side ahead of the release of the U.K. Preliminary GDP Report on Friday.
