FOREX: All quiet on the Asian front and G10 crosses stick to tight ranges. JPY
has taken the lead as U.S. equity index futures have turned red, but USD/JPY is
yet to test yesterday's lows. The Antipodean FX are steady ahead of Australian
monthly jobs report (due at the bottom of the hour) and New Zealand's budget
(due at the top of the hour).
- USD/CNH sits just slightly below neutral levels, with participants on the
lookout for a potential move from the PBoC, as flagged earlier. USD/KRW opened
higher, but has trimmed gains since.
- Later in the day, the focus will turn to U.S. initial jobless claims, German
CPI, ECB Economic Bulletin & BoC FSR. Speaker slate features BoE's Bailey, BoC's
Poloz, ECB's de Guindos and Fed's Kashkari, Bostic & Kaplan.
