Not worse than expected.

The big flow is generally risk-on.

US stock prices are rising, and in addition, buying is coming in to the USD.

Although the USD strength was unexpected, we are buying USDCHF according to the flow.

Currently, the power balance in 15 minutes is

USD > CAD = CHF > NZD > EUR > GBP > AUD > JPY
