US Dollar to Join Yen Rally as Deutsche Bank Sours Sentiment

US Dollar to Join Yen Rally as Deutsche Bank Sours Sentiment

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • US Dollar likely to join Yen on the upside as Deutsche Bank sours sentiment
  • Aussie Dollar sinks as Asian, European shares follow Wall Street downward
  • US PCE, Eurozone CPI may pass unnoticed as risk aversion grips markets

The sentiment-linked Australian Dollar underperformed overnight while the anti-risk Japanese Yen traded higher as risk aversion triggered in late Wall Street trade carried over onto Asian bourses. The rout was triggered after Bloomberg reported that about 10 hedge funds cut back their exposure to beleaguered German lender Deutsche Bank.

Insolvency fears have plagued the firm recently after US regulators demanded it set aside $14 billion for penalties related to the conduct of its MBS business in the lead up to the 2008-9 financial crisis. German Chancellor Angela Merkel reportedly ruled out state assistance, according to a report from Focus magazine earlier in the week.

European shares are have taken up the risk-off lead in early trade and US stock futures are pointing sharply lower, hinting that sentiment may continue to sour into the week-end. The US Dollar may emerge as another beneficiary alongside the Yen as haven demand sends capital flooding into the benchmark currency. Gold has also emerged as a beneficiary.

US PCE inflation figures – the Fed’s favored price growth benchmark – headline the economic calendar. The core year-on-year rate is expected to tick up to 1.7 percent, the highest in at least six months. While an upbeat result might have stirred rate hike speculation, this seems unlikely as risk appetite sours across financial markets. An slightly higher flash Eurozone CPI reading may also pass with little fanfare.
