USD Poised, Sterling Rally, Here's Why

Updated 09:46AM 09/12/2019

GBP and JPY are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.2% and 0.17% vs the dollar while AUD and NZD are the top losers, down -0.2% and -0.15% vs the dollar. The dollar recovered on the back of stronger-than-expected jobs data, although we are seeing some softness at the start of the week on concerns over U.S.-China trade talks. Sterling jumped after opinion polls showed the lead for the Conservative Party over Labour party extending to 10 points ahead of the General election this week.In the Asian equities space, the Nikkei 225 closed up 0.33% at 23,430.70, Hang Seng closed -0.01% at 26494.73 and Kospi ended 0.33% at 2088.65. The European equities were trading weaker with the FTSE down -0.19% at 7225.91, DAX down -0.17% at 13144.43, and CAC down -0.32% at 5852.94. In the rates market, global yields were trading weaker; the US 10-year yield was trading at 1.8173% and the Bund 10-year yield trading at -0.31%. In the energy space, the Brent (front month) is trading down (-0.68%) for the day at $63.95.
