Charts created by Benjamin Spier using Marketscope 2.0

A clear risk-on attitude can be seen in global equity markets for a second day, as even more Chinese data beat expectations and US President Obama opened up the door for a possible diplomatic solution to Syria. However, after a bit of volatility, the US Dollar is trading only slightly lower in today’s session.

The US Dollar continued lower in yesterday’s North American session, possibly a winding down of the safe haven greenback in the risk-on environment, or maybe it was a further reaction to the worse than expected NFP numbers from last week.

Shortly after the US close, President Obama told NBC News that the Russian offer for Syria to allow international control of its chemical weapons is ‘potentially positive.’ However, Obama is still pursuing congressional approval of a strike on Syria. Although, there was no clear US Dollar reaction immediately following the comments, they were given some of the responsibility for the rise in risk-correlated Forex pairs in today’s session.

The US Dollar lost some ground in the Asian session last night, reflecting Aussie gains on the strongest business confidence in over 2-years.

Finally, better than expected Chinese industrial production was soon followed by a US Dollar rally over the rest of the European session.
