Risk-off market profile prevailed in Asia at full steam, as the Asian equities tracked the overnight sell-off in their US counterparts, after the US President Trump’s announcement of the import tariffs on steel and aluminum intensified the concerns over a possible trade war, with a strong retaliation expected from China.

Across the fx space, the Yen regained the bids on the back of safe-haven flows, knocking-off USD/JPY below the 106 handle for the first time in two weeks, despite the usual jawboning from the BoJ Governor Kuroda. The Aussie wiped out gains and traded neutral around the 0.7750 levels while its OZ counterpart, the NZD, stalled its upmove and consolidated the gains near 0.7270 region. Meanwhile, both the EUR and GBP remained better bid versus the greenback, as markets await fresh trading impetus from the European session ahead.

However, the main risk event for today remains the UK PM Theresa May’s speech, in which she will speak about Britain's post-Brexit relationship with the European Union (EU), in London. Meanwhile, the UK construction PMI data and BOE Governor Carney’s speech will also draw some attention in Europe. The NA session remains data-light, with the Canadian GDP and the US revised UoM consumer sentiment on the cards.

EUR/USD - Bullish outside day, crowding out weak bears?

EUR/USD staged a solid rebound from 1.2173 (38.2% Fib R of 1.1554- 1.2556) yesterday and rose to 1.2773, engulfing the previous day's high and low.

GBP/USD - Eyes bull hammer reversal, focus on PM May speech

The big gains are ruled out as the UK is a current account deficit country and hence the Pound is extremely vulnerable to rising odds of an all-out global trade war and the resulting risk aversion in the equities.
