MARKET DEVELOPMENT – USD Dips, Oil Plunges, AUD & NZD Outperform, Trade War Deal Nears

Crude Oil: Brent and WTI crude futures fell over 2% after Trump stated that oil prices were getting too high and calling on for OPEC to relax. Brent now crude sub $66/bbl, having traded at 3-month highs. Consequently, oil exporters have seen a slight pullback against oil importers (Click here).

AUD / NZD: Both the Aussie and Kiwi gained on the back of comments by President Trump, in which he stated that he would delay the planned tariff increase on Chinese imports (Deadline March 1st) and that he will be looking to have summit with President Xi once an agreement can be reached. Consequently, antipodeans are outperforming across the board with AUD and NZD hitting highs of 0.7180 and 0.6900 respectively.

USD: The USD is softer across the board with the exception of the safe-haven JPY as an end to the US-China trade war looks to be drawing closer. Elsewhere, eyes will be on Fed Chair Powell, who is likely to reiterate patience with regard to rate rises.
