JPY and CHF are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.28% and 0.26% vs the dollar while AUD and SEK are the top losers, down -0.46% and -0.29% vs the dollar. The risk sentiments improved a little after U.S. decision to delay trade tariffs on China; U.S. President Donald Trump backed off his 1st September deadline for imposing 10% tariffs on $300bn imports. However, Chinese Yuan gave up its earlier gains after weaker-than-expected economic data. We see continued weakness for risky currencies with safe-havens likely to remain well bid.
