Global Recession Fears & Continued Demand For CHF and JPY

Updated 10:00AM 12/08/2019

FX Strategy 12 Aug 19

 

JPY and GBP are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.38% and 0.23% vs the dollar while NOK and SEK are the top losers, down -0.61% and -0.48% vs the dollar. The yen was trading firm on Monday, reaching a year and a half high versus the U.S. Dollar on concerns that a trade war between the United States of America and China could lead to a global recession. On Friday, U.S. President Donald Trump said that there will be no trade agreement between the U.S. and China for now; this has raised the demand for safe-haven currencies. We see continued demand for CHF and JPY amid uncertain trade environment. In the Asian equities space, Hang Seng closed -0.44% at 25824.72 and Kospi ended 0.23% at 1942.29. The European equities were trading mixed with the FTSE -0.14% at 7243.64, DAX 0.23% at 11720.94, and CAC 0.07% at 5331.5. In the rates market, global yields were trading weaker; the US 10-year yield was trading at 1.6864% and the Bund 10-year yield trading at -0.588%. In the energy space, the Brent (front month) is trading down (-0.84%) for the day at $58.04.
