MARKET DEVELOPMENT – USD Dented, AUD Slammed on China Tensions

USD: The greenback is marginally softer across the board with exception of AUD and NZD, following the latest Philly Fed data, in which the business outlook fell to its lowest level since the May 2016. Consequently, this poses downside risks to next months ISM Manufacturing reading, while also confirming that the US economy is indeed beginning to feel the spill-over effects from the slowdown observed in the rest of the world.

GBP: A relatively choppy session for the Pound thus far amid a serious of conflicting Brexit headlines. GBPUSD had initially dipped on reports citing a UK Official that a Brexit deal next week is unlikely. However, GBP quickly pared the initial decline after EU Diplomats sources noted that they were moving towards breaking Brexit impasse. GBPUSD currently hovering around its best levels of the day and comfortably above the 200DMA at 1.3050.

AUD: The Australian Dollar fell over 1% overnight after China stated that ports will ban imports of Australian coal amid the rising geopolitical tensions between China and Australia. Further losses had been stemmed with AUDUSD holding 0.71 (For technical analysis, click here).
