ForexLive Americas FX news wrap: USD/JPY falls most in 8 months

Forex news for US trading on May 17, 2017
Markets:
– S&P 500 down 44 points to 2357 — worst day since Sept 9
– Gold up $22 to $1259
– WTI crude up 32-cents to $48.98
You won’t find a reason for those market moves in that set of headlines. It was all about what transpired earlier when reports surfaced about memos showing Trump may have improperly tried to ask Comey to kill his investigation of Mike Flynn.
