It was a fairly tight start to the week, with headline flow few and far between. AUD/NZD was the (relative) big mover, as it staged a foray above the psychological NZ$1.10 level for the first time in nearly two years. Apparent profit taking dragged the rate back below that round figure, which capped a subsequent bounce. NZD was wounded by New Zealand's Covid-19 situation, which resulted in a delay to the nation's general election & pre-election economic and fiscal update. Domestic QE dynamics and the RBNZ's growing openness toward negative interest rates magnified pressure to the Kiwi.
- AUD remained among the best performers in the G10 basket, closely followed by the Scandies, amid light risk-on flows. USD was offered amid a continued deadlock in U.S. fiscal talks.
- USD/CNH ebbed under Friday's lows, weighed on by broader greenback weakness, as the PBoC fix roughly matched expectations thus failing to generate any impetus.
