CHF & JPY sit atop the G10 FX table. This.....>

FOREX: CHF & JPY sit atop the G10 FX table. This comes after the JPY
underperformed Wednesday, on the back of a huge rally in U.S. equities (albeit
after a tumultuous Christmas Eve for stocks), as the Dow added over 1,000 points
for the first time in history. The JPY has paid more attention to the negative
overnight session for U.S. index futures, as opposed to the 3.00%+ gain for the
Nikkei 225 at writing. AUD, NZD & CAD have struggled to garner a bid in Asian
hours, underperforming as a result, with the EUR & GBP lodging nominal gains
against the greenback.
- It has been a headline-light session. Focus remains on the ongoing gov't
shutdown. On Weds WH econ advisor Hassett stressed that Fed Chair Powell & Tsy
Sec Mnuchin's jobs are fully secure, with the WSJ reporting that Powell "has
told WH off'ls he is open to their suggestion that he meet directly with Trump."
- The econ docket remains somewhat limited Thurs, with desks still depleted on
the back of the Christmas holiday season. Focus on U.S. data with weekly jobless
claims, cons confidence & FHFA house price data due. N.B. the release of new
home sales data scheduled for Thurs is delayed, owing to the gov't shutdown.
