RBNZ Surprise and Trump Dodge

Created 11/13/2019 at 10:10AM

NZD and CHF are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 1.07% and 0.33% vs the dollar while NOK and SEK are the top losers, down -0.4% and -0.29% vs the dollar. The New Zealand dollar rose 1% after the RBNZ left interest rates on hold unexpectedly. The consensus was for a 0.25% rate cut as global slowdown has pushed the economic growth at a six-year low. Other risky currencies fell versus the dollar after U.S. President Trump threatened to raise tariffs on Chinese goods if a trade deal fails. Trump on Tuesday offered no details on trade negotiations, worrying investors over Sino-U.S. trade wars. In the Asian equities space, the Nikkei 225 closed -0.85% lower at 23,319.87, Hang Seng closed -1.82% at 26571.46 and Kospi ended -0.86% at 2122.45. The European equities were trading weaker with the FTSE down -0.54% at 7326.01, DAX down -0.92% at 13161.45, and CAC down -0.58% at 5885.67. In the rates market, global yields were trading weaker; the US 10-year yield was trading at 1.8843% and the Bund 10-year yield trading at -0.288%. In the energy space, the Brent (front month) is trading down (-0.98%) for the day at $61.45.
