Forex Outlook as Risk Appetite Improves

Updated 10:15AM 10/01/2020

AUD and NZD are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.28% and 0.02% vs the dollar while SEK and CHF are the top losers, down -0.19% and -0.15% vs the dollar. Australian and New Zealand dollar rose on Friday on improved geopolitical sentiments. Upbeat U.S. economic data and easing of fears over a war between the U.S. and Iran also helped in improving risk appetite. Elsewhere, Sterling remained sideways despite House of Commons approving legislation which will allow Britain to leave the EU on the 31st of January.

The European equities were trading mixed with the FTSE 0.03% at 7600.06, DAX 0.17% at 13517.81, and CAC -0.05% at 6039.32.
