FOREX: The USD caught a fresh bid around the NY crossover. USD/JPY touched
six-month highs of Y112.63, EUR/USD eased to $1.1650 and GBP/USD dipped back
under $1.3200. However, a delayed react to the miss on headline US CPI (0.1%m/m
vs median 0.2%) saw a modest unwind of USD longs.
- ECB minutes were broadly in line with the comments delivered at the press
conference, while Fed Chair Powell offered little in the way of fresh insight
into MonPol ahead of tomorrow's release of the semi-annual MonPol report. The
Brexit white paper was also released but generated no notable reaction.
- Safe-havens were on the defensive as risk appetite improved, USD/CHF traded
back above parity, topping out at CHF1.0028, while EUR/CHF tracked the move
through the 200-DMA (CHF1.1675), stalling just shy of the 100-DMA (CHF1.1712).
Commodity-tied FX sat at the top of the G10 pile.
- Fed's Powell, Bostic & Kashkari, China trade data, BOE's Cunliffe highlight on
Friday.
