FOREX: Risk appetite was pared back ahead of US Pres Trump's appearance at
Economic Club in NY. EUR/USD drifted lower through the day, touched $1.1003
where it was seen meeting support, some citing barrier interest at $1.1000 (not
confirmed) drawing demand ahead. Rate back at $1.1014 post Trump. Safe haven
currencies enjoyed some inflow, though USD/JPY remained above its 200-dma at
Y109.03 keeping underlying tone buoyant. Sterling gained a further boost late on
as Sky released a YouGov poll suggesting the Conservatives now have a 14-point
lead over Labour, following Brexit Party Farage decision to stand down
candidates in sitting Conservative MP constituencies. EUR/GBP again meets
support around Gbp0.8558. NZD retained a soft tone through the day after being
pressed lower in Asia on release of a softer 2-yr inflation exp survey has
opened chance for 25bp cut at tonight's RBNZ meeting. More interest if move seen
dovish, if not could see bounce back.
