Investors Chase Risk with Trade Deal Insight

Created 11/05/2019 at 10:01AM


AUD and NOK are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.58% and 0.4% vs the dollar while JPY and CHF are the top losers, down -0.27% and -0.25% vs the dollar. The U.S. dollar rose on growing optimism over the Sino-U.S. trade deal. A preliminary agreement is being agreed to scale back the trade war. Japanese Yen and Swiss Franc were weak as investors chased risky assets. The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) left monetary policy unchanged and this had little impact on the Australian Dollar. The British pound advanced initially though UK election uncertainty capped gains. The Bank of England is due later this week and we expect the policy stance to be neutral. Focus to remain on UK election with any drop in conservative party lead to cause weakness in Sterling. In the Asian equities space, the Nikkei 225 closed up 1.71% at 23,251.99, Hang Seng closed 0.49% at 27683.4 and Kospi ended 0.58% at 2142.64. The European equities were trading mixed with the FTSE 0.35% at 7395.14, DAX 0.03% at 13140.54, and CAC -0.05% at 5821.29. In the rates market, global yields were trading firmer; the US 10-year yield was trading at 1.8265% and the Bund 10-year yield trading at -0.314%. In the energy space, the Brent (front month) is trading up (0.5%) for the day at $62.44.
