Forex Today

FOREX_forex-today-antipodeans-slip_FXPIG

Forex today was a quiet Asian affair amid holiday-thinned trading, with Japan and China both out on their respective public holidays. Despite a holiday, the China Federation of Logistics & Purchasing’s (CFLP) published upbeat China manufacturing and non-manufacturing PMI readings. But, better Chinese PMIs failed to benefit the Antipodeans, as they were dragged lower by negative oil and gold prices. The Loonie too tracked its commodity-linked peers lower. For rest of the majors, tight trading ranges remained the theme this session amid broad-based USD consolidation, as investors brace for the FOMC and NFP week ahead.

Main topics in Asia

Japan to tighten FX leverage - Japan press

According to reporting by Japan's Sankei newspaper, Japan's Financial Services Authority intends to restrict FX leverage on retail accounts.

Chinese data dump: NBS/Non-manufacturing PMI April solid

The Chinese, who are out on Labour day, just reported the latest NBS manufacturing data that came in as 51.4.

New Zealand ANZ Activity Outlook down to 17.8% in April from previous 21.8%

Trump threatens September shutdown if wall not funded - Reuters

The US President Trump is repeating his brinkmanship points from the last US funding bill showdown, looking ahead to September's budget meeting and warning that he demands funding for his planned US-Mexico border wall …

Fitch: Housing market downturn to weigh down on Australian banks' ratings

Fitch Ratings is out with its latest review report on the Australian banking sector, underscoring key risks that could pressure the Australian banks’ ratings.

Key Focus ahead

Today’s EU calendar sees a quiet start to a busy week ahead, with Germany’s retail sales and prelim CPI data to keep the EUR, GBP traders slightly motivated amid an empty UK docket. Also, in focus will be the speech by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Governor Phillip Lowe at the Reserve Bank Board Dinner, in Adelaide.

In the NA session, the Canadian RMPI (Change in the price of raw materials purchased by manufacturers) will be reported alongside the US Core PCE price index and personal spending figures. Meanwhile, the US Chicago PMI and pending home sales data will be reported just ahead of the US open.

EUR/USD: steady above 1.2100 ahead of a Big week

The EUR/USD pair kicked-off the week on a quiet note, as holiday-thinned markets left the rates fluctuating between gains and losses well above the 1.21 handle, as investors await fresh impetus from the sentiment on the European open ahead of the German Prelim CPI release.

GBP/USD back into familiar territory below 1.38

A new week begins with the Sterling having fallen over four percent since April's high of 1.4375. Monday's European session is a decidedly quiet affair for the GBP with nothing scheduled on the economic calendar, but the GBP's recent rout is a warning sign …

Tariffs to return to the forefront as May 1st deadline approaches

The focus is likely to swing back to US President Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs this week, as the exemptions granted to several key trading partners with the US were only temporary, with a self-imposed deadline of May 1st by Trump.

RBA Board Meeting Tuesday and Statement of Monetary Policy on Friday

The week ahead could be a really busy one in terms of local and international news. The first Tuesday of the month, of course, brings an RBA Board Meeting, with Governor Phil ‘slow and gradual’ Lowe speaking afterward at a dinner in Adelaide.
