US Non-Farm-Payrolls and Forex Outlook Ahead
Updated 09:08AM 04/10/2019
NZD and AUD are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.41% and 0.22% vs the dollar while USD and NOK are the top losers.
The U.S. dollar is likely to strengthen over the coming weeks amid weak global trade conditions and trade wars with the EU and China. The U.S. NFP is due later today and with a 90% probability of a Fed rate at the end of October priced in we expect upside risk to USD.
The yuan weakness continued hitting new decade lows, it is difficult to see much resolution to the trade wars at the next week talks amid falling Renminbi. Chinese markets will close until Thursday for public holidays.
The Australian and New Zealand dollar are still vulnerable and we expect upside to be limited as RBA and RBNZ are likely to deliver more monetary policy easing over the coming months.
