Australian Dollar May Bounce as Risk Appetite Recovers

Australian Dollar May Bounce as Risk Appetite Recovers

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

The New Zealand Dollar underperformed in overnight trade. The move tracked a drop in 3-month borrowing costs, hinting it may have reflected pre-positioning ahead of tomorrow’s RBNZ monetary policy announcement. Traders are pricing in a 64 percent probability of a 25 basis point rate cut, according to OIS-derived estimates.

The US Dollar likewise faced selling pressure as prices corrected after hitting a weekly high in yesterday’s session. The Euro and the Japanese Yen proved best-supported as risk aversion carried over from Wall Street onto Asian bourses, encouraging the unwinding of carry traders funded in the two low-yielding currencies.

Looking ahead, a quiet economic data docket in European and US hours seems likely to put sentiment trends at the forefront. S&P 500 futures are pointing firmly higher in late Asian trade, hinting a recovery in risk appetite may be afoot after the MSCI World Stock Index – a proxy for the daily ebb and flow of global investors’ confidence – dropped to a three-week low yesterday.

This may cap Euro and Yen gains while offering a lifeline to higher-yielding alternatives, such as the Australian Dollar. The currency completed its largest two-day loss in six weeks against its US counterpart at the close of yesterday’s session. We are looking to any bounce from here as a selling opportunity.
