Draghi's Last Stand - What to expect

Created 10/24/2019 at 09:23AM

SEK and NOK are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.39% and 0.06% vs the dollar while NZD and AUD are the top losers, down -0.45% and -0.35% vs the dollar. Mario Draghi will convene his last press conference on Thursday as President of the ECB. It couldn't have come at a worse time as the eurozone inflation hangs at less than half the ECB's target. There is unlikely to be any fireworks and we expect the same rhetoric of more easing to continue.


Elsewhere, Swedish Krone rose 0.65% as the Swedish central bank continued with its plans to raise interest rates in the next month. The Norwegian Krone was also trading firm - thanks to a surge seen on Wednesday in oil prices - despite a relatively dovish message from the Norges Bank.


In the Asian equities space, the Nikkei 225 closed up 0.55% at 22,750.60, Hang Seng closed 0.87% at 26797.95 and Kospi ended 0.24% at 2085.66. The European equities were trading firm with the FTSE up +0.65% at 7308.02, DAX up +0.44% at 12854.51, and CAC up +0.32% at 5671.68. In the rates market, global yields were trading mixed; the US 10-year yield was trading at 1.7555% and the Bund 10-year yield trading at -0.386%. In the energy space, the Brent (front month) is trading down (-0.72%) for the day at $60.73.
