What’s Moving

European trade was quiet with players waiting see what the U.S. session would do with price action. The U.S. market chose to focus on a strong opening for U.S. stocks, which pressured U.S. yields lower.

U.S. Michigan Sentiment then came in much weaker than expected and at a 10-year low, which pressured the dollar across the majors. This, in addition with a bounce on oil saw good buying of commodity currencies, with the CHF, Yen and Euro also well supported over the day.


Expect a quiet start to the session in Asia as locals consolidate overnight levels and adjust positions ahead of today’s key Chinese data.

Data today in Asia sees:

· Japanese PPI (E: 9.4%)

· Chinese Retail Sales (E: -6.2%)

· Chinese Industrial Production (E: +0.5%)

· Chinese Unemployment Rate (E: 6.0%)
