G7 Comments May Help Aussie, NZ Dollar Rebound as Yen Falls

G7 Comments May Help Aussie, NZ Dollar Rebound as Yen Falls

Talking Points:

  • Yen falls, commodity-bloc FX gains as risk appetite recovers overnight
  • New Zealand Dollar outperforms on fading RBNZ rate cut speculation
  • G7 officials’ comments may help sentiment rebound into the week-end

The Japanese Yen underperformed in overnight trade as stocks advanced, weighing on the anti-risk currency. Not surprisingly, the sentiment-linked Australian and New Zealand Dollars traded higher alongside share prices.

The Kiwi outperformed as the island nation’s front-end bond yields pushed upward, hinting at ebbing RBNZ rate cut speculation. Indeed, a gauge of the priced-in 12-month outlook implied in OIS rates has moved to the least dovish in four months.

The overall risk appetite recovery likely reflects corrective flows after yesterday’s Fed-inspired selloff. Fears of imminent stimulus withdrawal swelled as traders digested unmistakably hawkish rhetoric within minutes from April’s FOMC meeting, pushing the MSCI Asia Pacific regional benchmark equity index to a monthly low.

Stock index futures are trading notably higher ahead of the opening bell in Europe, hinting the risk-on mood is aiming to carry through into the week-end. Sideline comments from a meeting of G7 finance ministers and central bank governors may help if officials hint at on-coming fiscal measures to boost sagging global growth as monetary efforts appear increasingly stretched.
