Aussie Dollar Gains, Yen Falls as Markets Cheer China Trade Data

Talking Points:

  • Aussie, NZ Dollars rise with stocks and crude oil as Yen falls in Asia
  • China’s trade data cheered as exports, imports outperform forecasts
  • US data, Fed Beige Book may boost Dollar and trigger risk aversion

The Australian and New Zealand Dollars are outperforming in Asian trade, rising alongside regional share prices. Crude oil is likewise on the upswing while the anti-risk Japanese Yen is proving weakest on the session, speaking to a broad-based recovery in sentiment. The move seems to reflect follow-on momentum from similarly upbeat performance on Wall Street, where shares surged alongside the WTI contract following an Interfax report claiming that Russia and Saudi Arabia have agreed on the terms of an oil output level freeze.

China’s Trade Balance report helped stoke optimism. The data showed exports jumped 18.7 percent year-on-year in March, topping expectations calling for a 14.9 percent increase (in CNY terms). Meanwhile, imports fell 1.7 percent year-on-year, a notably smaller drawdown than the 4.8 percent drop envisioned by economists ahead of the release. Taken together, these figures paint a relatively upbeat picture of Chinese demand and cross-border sales prowess compared with consensus views.

Looking ahead, US Retail Sales and PPI figures as well as the Fed Beige Book survey of regional economic conditions are in focus. Receipts are expected to rise 0.1 percent in March having fallen by an equivalent amount in the prior month. Core wholesale inflation is expected to accelerate to a rate of 1.3 percent year-on-year over the same period. US economic news-flow has increasingly firmed relative to baseline forecasts since early February, setting the stage for upside surprises in the event that analysts’ models continue to underestimate the economy’s vigor.

This coupled with an upbeat Beige Book may help boost Fed rate hike expectations, driving the US Dollar broadly higher. Risk appetite may cool in this scenario as traders ponder headwinds posed by a tighter US policy posture than currently priced in. Shares may struggle to build on recent gains against such a backdrop, applying selling pressure to higher-yielding FX (Aussie, Kiwi and Canadian Dollars) as well as cycle-sensitive commodities (crude oil, copper) and precious metals.
