Sterling Poised and USD Firm Here's Why

Created 10/22/2019 at 09:21AM


NZD and SEK are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.16% and 0.1% vs the dollar while CHF and GBP are the top losers, down -0.27% and -0.17% vs the dollar. The Canadian dollar was largely unchanged after it became apparent that the Liberal government will be re-elected. Canadian PM Trudeau's Liberals will form a minority government.

 

U.S. Dollar started to firm as the market was positive on a Sino-U.S trade deal. Euro was steady after hitting a two-month high versus the dollar as the market waited for a vote on the withdrawal agreement in the British Parliament. PM Boris Johnson now faces two key votes in the parliament on Tuesday; parliamentarians will vote at about 1800 GMT on Boris's Withdrawal Agreement Bill and then on the timetable for approving the legislation.


 In the Asian equities space, Hang Seng closed 0.23% at 26786.2 and Kospi ended 1.16% at 2088.86. The European equities were trading mixed with the FTSE 0.16% at 7175.42, DAX 0.03% at 12752.2, and CAC -0.44% at 5623.59.
