In result of the news this morning, the EURUSD spiked up to around 1.317 and retraced back towards the 1.310 mark.
G20 Meetings are currently underway in Petersburgh, Russia. Reports say that Obama is being pressured to take action on Syria. Syria is definitely a focal point of the meetings and news of agreed action against Syria could shake the world market, dependent on timing, leading to Sunday gaps.
