Sterling higher, AUD Lower, here's Why?

Updated 10:12AM 04/12/2019

GBP and CAD are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.43% and 0.13% vs the dollar while AUD and SEK are the top losers, down -0.32% and -0.29% vs the dollar. AUD fell after weaker Q3 GDP data. The risk sentiments are improved after rumors that U.S. and China are close to a deal despite rhetoric from both sides. Elsewhere, Sterling edged higher, hitting a 7-month high versus the dollar; the market is betting on a conservative majority and we may see further upside while UK PM Boris Johnson maintains the lead over their closest rival. In the Asian equities space, the Nikkei 225 closed -1.05% lower at 23,135.23, Hang Seng closed -1.25% at 26062.56 and Kospi ended -0.73% at 2068.89. The European equities were trading firm with the FTSE up +0.26% at 7177.37, DAX up +1.06% at 13126.33, and CAC up +1.12% at 5791.49. In the rates market, global yields were trading firmer; the US 10-year yield was trading at 1.7482% and the Bund 10-year yield trading at -0.333%. In the energy space, the Brent (front month) is trading up (1.28%) for the day at $61.6.
