Dollar Rally Paused But Euro Vulnerable to a Further Downside

Updated 09:58AM 19/02/2020

NOK and NZD are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.49% and 0.31% vs the dollar while JPY and GBP are the top losers, down -0.31% and -0.16% vs the dollar.


Euro stabilised a little as improvement in risk sentiments paused the dollar rally and provided much-needed relief for the single currency that had dipped to three-year lows on fears of weakening eurozone economy.


In the Asian equities space, the Nikkei 225 closed up 0.89% at 23,400.70, Hang Seng closed 0.46% at 27655.81 and Kospi ended 0.07% at 2210.34. The European equities were trading firm with the FTSE up +0.89% at 7447.41, DAX up +0.38% at 13732.78, and CAC up +0.52% at 6088.12. In the rates market, global yields were trading firmer; the US 10-year yield was trading at 1.561% and the Bund 10-year yield trading at -0.403%. In the energy space, the Brent (front month) is trading up (0.62%) for the day at $58.11.
