Forex Today

Yen-weaker_Forex_FXPIG

Forex today was mainly driven by risk-on flows, triggered by a strong Abe win in the Japanese elections, which sent the Nikkei to fresh two-decade highs. However, the Yen failed to benefit from Abe’s landslide victory, as the outcome was already priced-in by the markets, while persisting risk-on trades also added to the weight on the safe-haven Yen. Gold also lost ground and hit 2-week lows amid broad USD strength. Meanwhile, the Antipodeans remained better bid amid better risk sentiment and higher oil prices.

Main topics in Asia

JPY: Another landslide victory for Abe: more of a relief yen-cross rally to go? - Nomura

Analysts at Nomura noted that the snap election result saw the ruling coalition (the LDP and Komeito) achieve another landslide victory - According to NHK, as of 2:00am local time 10 seats are still unknown.

EUR/USD - Strong EUR call bias & vols pick up, eyes Catalan crisis & ECB

EUR/USD was offered at the 50-day moving average hurdle on Friday as renewed hopes of tax reform in the US put a bid under the US dollar. The currency pair fell to 1.1762 on Friday and extended losses to 1.1751 in Asia.

GBP/USD: Will the buyers retain control above 1.3200?

The GBP/USD pair gradually extends its bounce from a dip to 1.3170 levels and looks to take on the recent upmove beyond 1.32 handle, in the wake of broad USD correction.
