NZD/USD has slipped in tandem with AUD/USD (which has shed a handful of pips since the time the AUSSIE bullet was published), as some light risk aversion has crept in, with e-minis sliding after the re-open. Those risk-off flows may be related to uncertainty surrounding U.S. fiscal matters, after U.S. Pres Trump's decision to sign four executive orders re: stimulus measures sparked controversy on both sides of the aisle, while parties to fiscal negotiations on the Capitol Hill remain divided. Continued concern over escalating Sino-U.S. tensions and global coronavirus situation may also be hurting risk appetite. NZD/USD last trades -11 pips at $0.6595.
