FOREX: AUD outperformer of the day while JPY sees relief after BoJ operation
-Australian retail sales drove the AUD higher against all other G10 currencies
this morning, coming in at over double the top end of expectations (1.2% vs.
median Exp. 0.4%). AUD/USD touched two-month highs upon release of $0.7887.
-JPY dropped as USD/JPY saw a relief rally on the back of the Bank of Japan's
resumed 1-10year yield curve control operation overnight, rising to Y111.87 from
lows of Y111.27 yesterday.
-Dollar's been driven by semi-official denials of yesterday's 'China sees
Treasuries as less attractive' news, claiming that the original reports quoted
an unofficial or incorrect source. DXY correction has erased the bulk of
yesterday's losses and now sits just below 2018 highs.
-CAD slipped against all other G10 currencies in an extended reaction to
yesterday's fears of a NAFTA dissolution and has now shed over 1.2% against the
greenback since the beginning of the week.
-GBP and EUR trade mixed with few catalysts to drive price action ahead of the
ECB minutes at 1230GMT. US PPI and weekly jobless claims take focus at 1330GMT.
