APAC Recap

The Japanese Yen surged when APAC’s Monday session opened. S&P 500 futures and crude oil prices – along with Asian equity indices – gapped lower alongside the cycle-sensitive AUD and NZD. Trade war fears over the weekend placed a premium on anti-risk assets and soured sentiment as the rift between Beijing and Washington continued to widen.

US Durable Goods Order Data May Magnify Risk Aversion

The US Dollar may rise against the Euro if US durable goods order data falls short of the 1.2 percent estimate, which is already lower than the previous print at 1.9 percent. If the report underwhelms, it could amplify the risk-off tilt markets are experiencing against the backdrop of deteriorating US-China trade relations. The demand for liquidity will likely outweigh the downward pressure of an uptick in Fed rate cut bets.

Looking at a US Dollar index shows that despite market expectations of an increase in the central bank adopting accommodative monetary policy, the Greenback has continued to rise. Fundamental headwinds from geopolitical uncertainty to fierce trade wars are boosting the US Dollar as traders shift from chasing yields to preserving capital.
