This morning, dollar interest is waning despite ADP Payrolls coming in above estimates yesterday. This comes as the S&P 500 recovered by 1% last night amid a generate return to risk appetite bias. Even the USD/JPY is on the back foot despite overall yen weakness.
The Australian dollar is the big winner so far, with the AUD/USD rallying 0.75% and rising so far this morning after trade balance came in well above estimates. The AUD/JPY is also rising and making back all of yesterday’s gains.
The GBP/USD is now firmly positive for the week and is building on yesterday’s impressive gains on hopes for a Brexit services deal. The EUR/GBP has slumped for the last two days, erasing much of last week’s gains. The GBP/JPY is also on the rise, nudging above yesterday’s highs.
The EUR/USD is rallying, but lagging its peers and has only just made good yesterday’s losses.
The Swiss franc is re-exerting its dominance, with the USD/CHF reversing most of yesterday’s losses.
The Canadian dollar is also performing well, with the USD/CAD making good half of yesterday’s gains following yesterday’s better than expected Canadian GDP.
