US Dollar May Rise Alongside Yen as Risk Aversion Builds Anew

US Dollar May Rise Alongside Yen as Risk Aversion Builds Anew

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • Yen looks past Asian shares advance, drops alongside S&P 500 futures
  • FX markets likely to look past UK and Eurozone PMIs, US ISM surveys
  • US Dollar may find building support as risk aversion gains momentum

The anti-risk Japanese Yen advanced despite continued recovery on Asian stock exchanges, tracking S&P 500 futures downward. This suggested overnight strength in the equities space may have amounted to little more than catch-up momentum after a third consecutive day of gains on Wall Street. Meanwhile, FX markets appeared to look ahead alongside US index futures, where the bias appeared to swing back toward the risk-off side of the spectrum.

UK and Eurozone Manufacturing PMI data headlines the economic calendar in European trading hours and the analogous US ISM Manufacturing survey enters the spotlight later in the day. None of these outcomes are likely to generate a meaningful response from investors however because they are unlikely to reflect the impact of post-Brexit vote uncertainty on sector activity trends.

With that in mind, broad-based risk appetite trends are likely retain control over price action. US index futures continue to point lower and the Yen is building upward momentum as Europe comes online. Meanwhile, the benchmark 10-year US Treasury bond yield has fallen to a record low. This seems to point toward continued risk aversion into the end of the trading week. Besides the Japanese unit, such a scenario is likely to prove supportive for the US Dollar.
