RBNZ Rate Cut & China/US Trade War

Updated 09:26AM 07/08/2019

JPY and EUR are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.23% and -0.04% vs the dollar while NZD and AUD are the top losers, down -1.56% and -0.47% vs the dollar. Kiwi fell sharply (almost 2%) after RBNZ delivered a 50bp rate cut. The New Zealand central bank also said that negative rates were possible. This has surprised the Forex market which has looked for safety in Japanese Yen as investors become worried over Global growth prospects. The trade wars are also likely to escalate with strong Dollar and weak Yuan likely to be an issue for the U.S. President Donald Trump. Elsewhere, Sterling remains subdued, still focused on a "no-deal" scenario. In the Asian equities space, the Nikkei 225 closed -0.33% lower at 20,516.56, Hang Seng closed 0.08% at 25997.03 and Kospi ended -0.41% at 1909.71. The European equities were trading firm with the FTSE up +0.62% at 7216.48, DAX up +1.16% at 11701.84, and CAC up +1.04% at 5289.07. In the rates market, global yields were trading weaker; the US 10-year yield was trading at 1.6802% and the Bund 10-year yield trading at -0.57%. In the energy space, the Brent (front month) is trading down (-0.1%) for the day at $58.88.
