US Market Snapshot via IG: DJIA +0.5%, NASDAQ 100 +0.5%, S&P 500 +0.5%

USD: Tepid price action for the US Dollar for much of the morning after its recent stellar gains, the key 3% level in the US 10-year treasury yield is holding for now and as such keeping a further rise in the USD at bay. Little in the way of major economic data points, which may suggest that a clean break from the key 3% level may be on hold for now.

EUR: Narrow 40 pip range for the Euro, currently holding 1.2200 after a brief dip through to 1.2180. Uninspiring German data continued with the latest IFO survey this morning, all major components saw a sizeable dip in April, business expectations dropping to its lowest level since August 2016 amid concerns that the German economy is slowing down.

AUD: The Australian saw a somewhat choppy price action in the wake of the latest inflation figures which had been somewhat mixed. Australian CPI fell short of expectations at 1.9% (Exp. 2%) with Q1 CPI falling to 0.4% from 0.6%, however the RBA’s preferred measure of inflation (Trimmed mean) rose ahead of consensus at 1.9% (Exp. 1.8%). Ultimately, not a game changer for the RBA who are expected to keep interest rates on hold for 2018.

IG Client Sentiment Index Chart of the Day: AUDUSD

US AM Digest: US Treasury Yield Resistance Keep DXY Buying at Bay

AUDUSD: Data shows 64.4% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.81 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 11.4% higher than yesterday and 27.3% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 6.3% higher than yesterday and 25.8% lower from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests AUDUSD prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger AUDUSD-bearish contrarian trading bias.
