Created 10/01/2019 at 09:22AM
USD and EUR are the top G10 FX gainers today while AUD and SEK are the top losers, down -0.77% and -0.59% vs the dollar. The U.S. dollar reached a 29-month high as signs of strength in the domestic economy and uncertainty over the China-U.S. trade war helped the Greenback. The Australian dollar fell to a month low after the RBA cut rates to an all-time low of 0.75% and hinted at more easing if needed.
Elsewhere, Sterling found support around three-week lows as investor eyed Prime Minister Boris Johnson proposal for Brexit.
