Euro near key levels, Coronavirus Risk Still loom

Updated 10:39AM 29/01/2020

JPY and SEK are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.1% and 0.1% vs the dollar while EUR and NZD are the top losers, down -0.16% and -0.15% vs the dollar. The markets were calmer compared to Tuesday with the panic over Coronavirus muted as investors assessed the economic impact of the virus spreading. The euro was testing key support at 1.1000 versus the dollar ahead of the Fed later today. A break from 1.1000 likely to cause some sharp moves lower towards 1.0900. Elsewhere, Sterling was trading weaker ahead of Bank of England on Thursday. There is a 50-50 chance of a rate cut following dovish statements by the BoE members over the past month. In the Asian equities space, the Nikkei 225 closed up 0.71% at 23,379.40, Hang Seng closed -2.82% at 27160.63 and Kospi ended 0.39% at 2185.28. The European equities is trading firm with the FTSE up +0.15% at 7491.85, DAX up +0.02% at 13326.85, and CAC up +0.28% at 5942.2.
