FOREX: SEK has worst session of the year as inflation undershoots
-Sweden's SEK is the poorest performer in G10 Tuesday, as CPI inflation for
January fell well below expectations (dropping 1% on the month vs. expected drop
of 0.7%), prompting EUR/SEK to rally to the highest levels since early September
last year. While last year's highs are still some way off (Sek10.7291), a break
above here would be the highest EUR/SEK rate since 2009.
-The greenback is clawing back some of yesterday's lost ground after a thin and
quiet Monday, with the USD index edging back towards 97.00. Equity markets in
Europe are in retreat, with mainland indices lower by 0.4-0.5%. US equity
futures are following suit, indicating a lower open following the extended
weekend. GBP was little changed following largely in-line jobs market data, with
focus turning to the appearance of the PM's Attorney General in the Commons
later, looking to assuage concerns over the Irish backstop as part of the
proposed Brexit legislation.
-German ZEW survey and speeches from Fed's Mester and ECB's Costa and Praet are
the calendar highlights.
