US Dollar, Yen Surge as Market Mood Sours into the Weekend

US Dollar, Yen Surge as Market Mood Sours into the Weekend

Talking Points:

Risk aversion has gripped financial markets in the final hours of the trading week. The US Dollar is enjoying broad-based support from haven demand and the anti-risk Japanese Yen is likewise on the upswing. The sentiment-linked commodity bloc currencies bore the brunt of selling pressure, sinking alongside stock prices, with the Australian Dollar standing out as the weakest of the bunch.

A singular catalyst for the move does not prominently stand out, although ominous comments from ONS Chief Economist Joe Grice may have played a part in setting the tone. The head of the UK’s statistics office warned that it is too early to draw definitive conclusions about the health of the economy in the aftermath of the Brexit referendum, pouring cold water on optimism driven by a recent run of upbeat news-flow.

A relatively quiet economic calendar from here presents few barriers for established momentum to carry forward, pointing to a risk-off mood ahead. S&P 500 futures are pointing sharply lower, bolstering the case for follow-through. Volumes are noticeably thin however, lowering barriers to seesaw volatility.

Losing money trading in the FX market? This might be why.
