FOREX: -Despite underperforming at the NY crossover, EUR rose back toward the
top of the G10 pile Monday during an appearance by ECB President Draghi, who
stated that he sees a "relatively vigorous pick-up in underlying inflation". The
comments saw EUR/USD briefly show above the $1.18 level, keeping the recent
bullish trend intact.
-Nonetheless, EUR failed to outpace GBP, which is the strongest among the majors
today as markets position for significant upcoming GBP/USD flows following the
weekend's $39bln Sky auction, won by US firm Comcast. Despite the bounce Monday,
GBP/USD fails to rally through the 50% retracement of Friday's price action,
lying at $1.3166.
-AUD and NZD failed to recoup the overnight losses, stemming from reports that
US-China trade talks have been kicked into the long grass, with the effect
exacerbated by profit taking after last week's firm rally.
-Attention turns to BoJ minutes, speeches from BoJ's Kuroda, BoE's Vlieghe and
various members of the ECB. Data focus shifts to US Consumer Confidence.
