Updated 10:14AM 11/12/2019

SEK and AUD are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.57% and 0.28% vs the dollar while EUR and GBP are the top losers, down -0.1% and -0.1% vs the dollar. The U.S. dollar inched higher as the market awaited the Federal Reserve meeting outcome and hoped that Trump will delay tariffs on Chinese goods.Sterling edged lower once again, a day ahead of British general election after the latest opinion poll showed lead for the Conservative Party narrowing further. In our view, GBPUSD could hit 1.25 in unlikely event of a Labour party majority.We expect the foreign exchange market to remain range-bound, as investors await the result of the U.K. general election, the outcome of the ECB meeting and the outcome of the 15th December trade deadline.In the Asian equities space, the Nikkei 225 closed -0.8% lower at 23,391.86, Hang Seng closed 0.79% at 26645.43 and Kospi ended 0.36% at 2105.62. The European equities were trading mixed with the FTSE -0.07% at 7208.76, DAX 0.01% at 13072.35, and CAC -0.27% at 5832.41. In the rates market, global yields were trading weaker; the US 10-year yield was trading at 1.8191% and the Bund 10-year yield trading at -0.314%.
