Risk sentiment soured alongside Italian.......>

FOREX: Risk sentiment soured alongside Italian assets from the get-go on
Tuesday, with Italy's 10-Year yield rising sharply to touch the highest levels
observed since early 2014. Rebuttals from Brussels, a still disunited front
among Italian politicians and the extension of uncertainty surrounding the
country's fiscal deficit targets knocked risk appetite, fuelling gains for the
JPY & CHF. Despite a modest recovery ahead of the U.S. close, EUR also slipped
against most, but recovered from worst levels.
- Both NZD & AUD continued to trim some of the gains seen across September,
keeping both currencies within striking distance of the YTD lows against the
USD, with the effects of risk aversion & a tense U.S. China trade situation
outweighing firm commodities prices.
- Global services & composite PMIs, U.S. ADP Employment data & the ISM
non-manufacturing survey provide the data highlights Wednesday, while a litany
of Fed speakers, including Chair Powell, as well as an address from ECB's Mersch
makes up the speaker schedule.
