The US dollar drift was back in fashion on Monday. The trade is to buy the dollar when nothing is going on and watch it slowly climb higher. It was the basic theme Monday as USD/JPY grinded to 113.80 from 113.50. Cable and the commodity currencies also lost ground in US trading while the euro held its ground.
