Created 09/23/2019 at 09:05AM


JPY and NZD are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.17% and 0.13% vs the dollar while SEK and NOK are the top losers, down -0.68% and -0.48% vs the dollar.

 

Euro fell after German PMI (flash) for September came in weaker than expected, raising further doubts over the robustness of the Euro-area economy.

 

Elsewhere, there were fresh doubts over U.S.-China trade talks as Donald Trump said that purchases of farm produce may not be enough to stop U.S. tariffs. Overall, the market sentiments are positive but that said, there is still nervousness over global outlook.

In the energy space, the Brent (front month) is trading up (0.09%) for the day at $64.34.
