This month's Federal Budget Balance (Actual:106.0B Forecast:80.9B Previous:-129.0B) alone can not add any spice to the overall market.

Dont understand why the US$ keeps falling against the GBP. Nothing major coming out of either side yet the US$ has dropped close to 0.75 of a cent (?) since the close last week
