FX Strategy 03 Jul 19

AUD and NZD are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.29% and 0.27% vs the dollar while GBP and NOK are the top losers, down -0.14% and -0.08% vs the dollar. The U.S. dollar slumped to a week low as the Treasury yields fell on dwindling optimism over the China-U.S. trade deal and on chances of a fresh tariff war with Europe. Elsewhere, Pound continues its downward spiral as expectation of a BoE rate cut gained ground following Governor Mark Carney’s comments citing rising uncertainty stemming from trade disputes and Brexit. In the Asian equities space, the Nikkei 225 closed -0.53% lower at 21,638.16, Hang Seng closed -0.07% at 28855.14 and Kospi ended -1.23% at 2096.02. The European equities were trading firm with the FTSE up +0.58% at 7602.96, DAX up +0.74% at 12619.85, and CAC up +0.57% at 5608.49.
