Title - UK-Ireland Meet, Trade Talks, and Forex Outlook

Created 10/10/2019 at 09:20AM


SEK and NZD are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.9% and 0.49% vs the dollar while USD and JPY are the top losers. British Pound fell to a month low versus the euro with uncertainty on Brexit still high just three weeks before the U.K is due to leave the EU. The focus remains on PM Johnson's meeting with Irish PM Leo Varadkar where attempts will be made to get the Irish Premier on board with the British proposal for Brexit. In our view, any positive news on this front will be positive Sterling, that said, it seems unlikely that any resolution will be reached ahead of the 19 October deadline.

 

The U.S. dollar weakened once again as hopes of a trade deal between China and the United States kept investors on hold. In the Asian equities, the Nikkei 225 closed up 0.45% at 21,551.98, Hang Seng closed 0.1% at 25707.93 and Kospi ended -0.88% at 2028.15. The European equities were trading mixed with the FTSE -0.05% at 7163.01, DAX 0.19% at 12117.73, and CAC 0.4% at 5521.35.

 

In the rates market, global yields were trading mixed; the US 10-year yield was trading at 1.5768% and the Bund 10-year yield trading at -0.543%. In the energy space, the Brent (front month) is trading up (0.1%) for the day at $58.38.
