Risk Aversion Recedes

Categories: AUD, CAD, EUR, GBP, Markets, News, USD
The US dollar opened with small gains across the board.  Tensions surrounding North Korea and the US have eased, somewhat, and risk aversion trades have been pared. Asia opened with news that Japan Q2 GDP data surpassed expectations, rising 1.0%, q/q vs. forecast for a 0.6% gain.  Donald Trump took a time out from chirping at North Korea.   That led to an unwind of risk aversion trades and USDJPY rallied from 108.95 to 109.79 by the New York open.  View article >

Yen at 8-Week High as Investors Flee to Safe Havens and Singapore’s Economy Outperforms

Amid growing tensions between the US and North Korea, investors fled on Thursday to the safety of the Japanese yen, gold and Treasuries. Earlier this week, US president Donald Trump had promised to lay “fire and fury” on North Korea should any attempt be made by the rogue nation to harm the US. Not one to back down, North Korea responded to Trump’s “fury” by describing on state media yesterday a plan to fire missiles at the island of Guam – a US territory 3,400km (2100 miles) from the North Korean border.

Hong Kong Dollar Surprises with Best Day in 18-Months and RBNZ to Stay on Hold Until 2019

On Wednesday, a single explosive hour formed the basis of what became the Hong Kong dollar’s best day since February 2016. A little after 6am in London and 1pm in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong dollar suddenly took off, forcing USD/HKD down from levels around 7.826 to 7.8116. And while a 0.18% move might seem negligible when compared to those common in other markets, such moves are rare in USD/HKD due to the manner in which Hong Kong’s currency is pegged to its American counterpart.
