Forex Market Awaits Trade Deal

Created 11/18/2019 at 10:07AM

GBP and EUR are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.47% and 0.14% vs the dollar while JPY and AUD are the top losers, down -0.2% and -0.06% vs the dollar. Sterling advanced further as polls suggest Prime Minister Boris Johnson could win a majority. In our view, the risk to sterling remains to the downside before the election results. Major currencies were moving sideways as traders looked at Sino-U.S. trade war to end. Data is sparse this week and the forex market is likely to move on news. In the Asian equities space, the Nikkei 225 closed up 0.49% at 23,416.76, Hang Seng closed 1.35% at 26681.09 and Kospi ended -0.07% at 2160.69. The European equities were trading mixed with the FTSE 0.01% at 7303.94, DAX -0.19% at 13217.09, and CAC -0.19% at 5927.96. In the rates market, global yields were trading mixed; the US 10-year yield was trading at 1.8446% and the Bund 10-year yield trading at -0.326%. In the energy space, the Brent (front month) is trading down (-0.13%) for the day at $63.22.
