FOREX: Light risk-on flows have emerged in G10 FX space, pushing the Aussie to
the top of the pile. Little in the way of potential catalysts noted in headline
flow, which remains rather quiet relative to the recent days. AUD may have been
somewhat aided by firmer than expected quarterly retail sales, which outweighed
the below-forecast monthly reading. Elsewhere, Australian trade balance slightly
missed projections, while NAB biz. conf. was steady. GBP underperforms following
yesterday's reports re: EU plans to backpedal on concessions made to the City of
London in the bloc's post-crisis financial rulebook.
- USD/CNH is range-bound, has retraced an earlier downtick after a higher than
expected fixing from the PBoC.
- USD/SGD resumed its surge, punching above a resistance zone from several highs
printed in mid-Oct, which limited gains y'day. USD/THB has also crept higher; as
a reminder, the BoT cut interest rates y'day. Meanwhile, USD/KRW & USD/TWD have
lost ground amid hopes for containment of the spreading coronavirus.
- Under the microscope today are German factory orders and speeches from Fed's
Kaplan, ECB's Lagarde & her colleague Villeroy.
