FOREX: The Asia-Pac session has witnessed another reversal in risk appetite amid
the ever-growing concern over the coronavirus outbreak & disappointment with a
lack of clarity re: fiscal stimulus from the White House, which came after Trump
anticipated the announcement of bold measures. JPY is the big mover, comfortably
outperforming its G10 peers amid renewed risk aversion. USD/JPY has slid under
the Y105.00 mark, initially pressured by slipping U.S. equity futures. A
Japanese FinMin off'l tipped hat to the importance of mkt stability & noted that
large swings in JPY in either direction are undesirable.
- Riskier G10 FX trade on a softer note. The Aussie has shown little reaction to
a speech from RBA Dep Gov Debelle, who signalled the Bank's preference for YCC
over outright QE, should the need for bond buying arise. Oil-tied NOK & CAD have
failed to make material gains on further recovery in crude. USD remains subdued,
sitting at the bottom of the pile. GBP has also struggled; per the Times, UK
Health Min who contracted coronavirus attended an event at No. 10 w/PM Johnson.
- The yuan has wiped out earlier gains following a softer than exp. PBoC fix.
- U.S. CPI, as well as UK monthly indicators & 2020 Budget are awaited today.
